We don't have those problems here down under. :) Is this called Snow Boating as distinct from Show Boating?

Well, at least he doesn't have to worry about it bursting into flames.

Seems like a pretty tall rig for the size of boat, what is it?

Believe it or not this thing was rigged and equipped to sail with a centreboard and junk style rig. It had a steering station up on top. I saw it on the road side for sale and curiosity got the better of me and I just had to have a look!  :)

PS Yes that is also a day bed up on top between the steering station seats. At least it could be good for something!

Craftsmanship does not by itself imply any seakeeping qualities, such as not capsizing, etc.

I agree. It was beautifully built but scary to even think about having any significant canvas up on. I believe subsequently the new owner derigged both the sail and keel, took off the two small outboards which rose out of the water on an elevator system and fitted one big one. It just caught my eye in passing driving back from Brisbane to Southern NSW having test sailed several trailable yachts up there. Its amazing what some people will think of. Apparently the builder was a competent boat builder and a bit of an inventor but not a sailor.

I don't know.   According to my practiced eye, it looks equally stable on all four sides.

It needs to be chopped to about 1/2 that height.

I would do it if it didn’t replace the stern lifeline pulpits. When it’s time to go offshore, I need the lifeline stanchions and lines re-attached. They’re in the aft lazarette waiting for action. 

The whole boat is a little unique. I often lay awake at night and wonder if the transom wasn’t chopped a few feet due to freshwater rot and a mizzen removed.

I have vestigial running backstays with the replacement mast. They’re disconnected and dropped into the main cabin hatch for varnishing in the pics

The diesel needs a kick in the ass and was removed on Monday so I can tear the top off and see what’s up so I opted to tow the boat over with our club work boat. My twinbro on board the boat so I could take a few pics for the room here.

The boom is original and in surprisingly good condition and the mast is a 2010 replacement of the original steel mast. But since the boat has steel floors, keel and centerboard trunk as well as a Canadian  Steel stamped mast step arch the mast probably didn’t make much of a weight difference. If an in boom roller main came along that liked I would consider it...

Also, it seems to be a little bow down at the moment. I took all the gear and propane tanks out of the aft storage plus the Yanmar and now there’s standing water in the cockpit forward and the aft scuppers are dry as a bone.

The boat takes on about a gallon of water an hour so I’ll shorthaul it in Late May when the yard has time and check the one bung plug I didn’t get in well enough and then fresh bottom paint.

Sounds weird to me as well. It was what the PO told me and my surveyor. Apparently the Prince the yacht was built for requested it instead of a Douglas Fir mast for the 1950 Newport-Bermuda race for which it was purpose built.  It was probably much shorter as the boom is set up for a main with a 18 1/2’ foot. Oder rigs with a 50’ mast generally have a 15’ or 16’ max foot.

I think Brent was into recycled street light standards for masts, or something along those lines. Steel masts sound heavy (even by BS 'design  criteria'). 19 lbs/ft for 6" Schedule 40 would come out to almost 1000 lbs for a 50' spar, before standing rigging.

Spent a day at anchor yesterday, first time the boat had been anchored since her fire in 98. The Anchorage is called Sandy Cove, lovely holding and shelter from the wind. A little open to a easterly swell though.

i didn't have an anchor ball and thought that fender would serve just as well for now. It's not mandatory here but just good practice :)
