That's just a sad Zombie. The panoramic view of the clutter was disorienting. The bow pulpit appears serviceable, can't believe it wasn't scavenged when the rest was stripped.

It weighs 260 lbs.

It's only 12 feet long.

It might carry a person, but the person couldn't carry it.

I think it would sit awfully low in the water if you were bold enough to get aboard. I'd give it a shot in warm water after checking pockets for things that shouldn't get wet.

12'?  260lbs?   Somebody oughta send him a copy of Marc Pettingill's "Building Sweet Dream" - 12'6" and about 28 lbs, outta 2 sheets of 1/4 marine grade ply.   Flatwater paddler, limited capacity ( 275lbs) - but, a stiff, nice paddling little canoe.

Regarding the dugout, it's possible it was a larger, crappier version of Paddle to the Sea that someone forgot to put back in the water. (Warning: Important Canadian cultural artifact follows):

 

I first saw this at Killbear Park near Parry Sound, way back when. They had a movie screen back then. There was another one I remember, a guy in a canoe going through the geological times of the Great Lakes. It was a humourous film that had the crowd roaring.

It also looks like that it has not had the gunnels steamed to widen it.   As stated before, it is a carved log shape, its going to roll like a log.

I have paddled a log canoe before, with widened gunnels.   It still rolls in an instant.

Not even sure if "requiring work" is close to honest. I think that scuttling it in a very deep part of the sea is what it mostly needs...

Oh good gravy!  I haven't seen that since I was a boy waaaay back when.  They showed the film to us in school, and it made quite the impression on me then.   Thank you so much for sharing.

I think it should be dragged up on shore and covered with dirt.

The ocean doesn't deserve such ill treatment

Neither does dirt, really, but it will have less effect on the environment that way

With a headline like that, who could resist visiting their website to learn more?

Not me.

 

Quote

 

The membership fee is $50 US per year, and membership entitles you to

  • Updates about Labora and progress of the trips, including articles, photos and videos

  • Access to members-only areas of the website

  • Input for the project's expeditions, destinations and themes

  • Access to the clubhouse, the S/V Labora, and other club equipment such as the sailing skiff and diving gear, during downtime between journeys.

No matter where in the world the ship is, you can come and stay for a week or more at a time and help with maintenance and upgrades. This is of particular interest to those who are considering investing in a boat of their own in the future. You can share your knowledge and experience with the club and learn new skills at the same time, and meet like minded people from around the globe in a relaxed environment.

As a club member, you may also donate for the maintenance and upgrading of the ship. With these donations you are able to take part in expeditions and be part of the crew learning traditional seamanship on the Labora. 

There is no minimum donation, and each dollar donated equals one point toward sailing time. 400 points are redeemable for one week of expedition time, and each additional week is 300 points. We encourage longer voyages, as spending more time aboard is a better to ingrain the skills deeper and to keep the knowledge learned in the memory for longer periods of time. The points are redeemable for yourself or as a gift to another, and the points do not expire so you can wait until a bunk on the journey that interests you most becomes available.

 

Or until the 90% becomes 100%.

It is a beautiful boat, with a lot of work completed and in the water (I would say my boat, which I sail regularly, is less than 90% completed, because what boat is complete?), so I am not sure how mock-worthy this ad is.

Yes, finding sailing partners with some cash this way is probably a little desperate, but not a horrible investment if you get along with the skipper, who seems to be experienced.

I am mocking the lack of proofreading of the contents of the description:

"Morgan 41 yawl for sale 
$37,500 (Not the Out Island version )
Linda Marie, designed as full keel, centerboard configuration with a 43 draft with the board up and 94 when fully extended. A stable off wind performance and balanced upwind capability. Highly desirable yawl sail plan provides a range of options for reducing sail. Combination genoa/mizzen sail propels the boat comfortably near hull speed.
The Morgan 41 yawl is a unique design. Elevation of cockpit is only three steps above the salon floor, eliminating the feeling of crawling down in a cave when going down the companionway.
Traditional layout with a large 67 x 7 Master v-berth with 6 teak storage cabinets. Head is situated to port with a large hanging locker to starboard. The main salon features 66 settees on each side with 66 pilot berths above and outboard. Nav. table to port with the galley starboard. A quarter berth lays aft behind the Nav table. Interior finished with oiled teak walls, cabinets and drawers, providing an extraordinary amount of storage space and uncommon elegance. Delivered as a hull/deck kit boat and completed by a talented original owner/with attention to detail."

No indication of units for draft: millimeters, feet, fathoms, qubits (Egyptian or Macedonian), leagues, shots?

The boat's name should be TARDIS, as it is bigger on the inside than the outside.   Room to sleep 132 of your closest sailing friends, on a 41 foot boat.

"We'll just beef that up a bit - make it a little stronger".

The fate of virtually all amateur ferros.

They all knew better than the designer.

There was one built here where the builder must have heard about the old wooden boat technique of filling the area above hull stringers with pitch tapered so water would run down to the bilge. Kept water from pooling on the tops of the stringers.

He thought it sounded like a good idea so he filled all such areas - with cement.

We've seen a few truck toppers plopped on boats but that one is a work of art and might deserve the attention of the Society.

The companionway is the best part. But the wheel, the seat, it's all a hoot.

That's not what that is.

It's an insta-carport. I've had a few. When the cover dies (about 2 years in the FL sun), you can get another. Or, if you're a cheap old coot like the one who stored his trailer in my driveway, you get a cheap silver tarp and string it up to the pole frame, which is steel. Later in the story, we get to the part about the steel rusting.

The vast majority of them are rectangular. The only round ones I've ever seen were solid.

A large percentage of constructed wooden masts -- including all the good ones -- are at least hexagonal or octagonal in cross section, very often glued up using the bird's mouth joint:

ABER+(163).jpg

 

birdworld1.gif

41fe3842df8bbd6f96735800d642172d.jpg?b=t

Rectangular box beams are fine -- in fact very good! -- as long as they are loaded parallel to one or the other axis. Any diagonal loading creates phenomenal stress concentrations at the vertices, and the beam tends to flatten like a cardboard carton you've opened the bottom of. Some people figure they can overcome the weakness of a rectangular mast by making it really large -- as this boat apparently did. But that really doesn't change the calculus at the corners. Better hope your loading stays on axis & in column, and that you experience zero torsion, or Blammo goes the spar. People build oblong spars because it's easy, not because they are strong. (Exception: the booms on performance race boats are often tall, narrow demi-rectangles. That's to maximize vertical strength when close hauled & the beam loads are insane. Any strength lost while reaching is accepted & (hopefully) covered by the remarkable properties of carbon fiber.)

I've never seen a big mast built birdsmouth style, mostly for dinghies. IIRC Guzzwell used that technique for the spars on Endangered Species and reinforced it with carbon tapes up the inside.

That one in the pic is amazing - a piece of art

Absolutely nothing wrong with a rectangular cross section for a wooden mast - they've been in common use for a more than a century. Birdsmouth is a relatively more modern technique that really came into its own with epoxy, which doesn't need the clamping pressure of earlier adhesives. A wooden spar is much more likely to fail from rot than from the building technique. 

HMCS Oriole, launched 1921 w/ hollow rectangular spars. Maybe not a great example given they lose bits of the rig occasionally, but they push that boat hard.

Hollow round spar sections were built in staves like an oak wine barrel. Marilee the gaff rig NY 40 has hollow spars constructed in this method with plugs installed at the ends to reinforce them. I helped build them in 2001 from a truckload of Oregon oldgrowth Douglas Fir. 

More recently, the birdsmouth has gained popularity since it basically holds itself together with more surface area and a physical rabbet to lay into. The 65’ mast for Silent Maid was laid up in this manner this past spring. 

My Crosby Curlew has a deck stepped hollow box mast and boom. It is able to handle the loads adequately. It’s in fine condition for a 54 year old spar. My ocean racer, Mooeak has a box boom from 1949 that is in fine condition as well. 

My 1900 catboat has solid spars and are quite heavy for spruce. Lots of resin in the old trees from the 1800’s.

Wow, now there is a fine piece of back porch engineering. I guess "super fast" means it can out run the 5 year old you stole the tricycle from?

I think I know why the seller "never uses it"

How can he know it's super fast if he never uses it?

Hollow round spar sections were built in staves like an oak wine barrel. Marilee the gaff rig NY 40 has hollow spars constructed in this method with plugs installed at the ends to reinforce them. I helped build them in 2001 from a truckload of Oregon oldgrowth Douglas Fir. 

More recently, the birdsmouth has gained popularity since it basically holds itself together with more surface area and a physical rabbet to lay into. The 65’ mast for Silent Maid was laid up in this manner this past spring. 

My Crosby Curlew has a deck stepped hollow box mast and boom. It is able to handle the loads adequately. It’s in fine condition for a 54 year old spar. My ocean racer, Mooeak has a box boom from 1949 that is in fine condition as well. 

My 1900 catboat has solid spars and are quite heavy for spruce. Lots of resin in the old trees from the 1800’s.

 

I remember reading someplace about gluing a mast for an America's Cup boat. This was pre-aluminum mast, pre-epoxt, pre-birdsmouth technique.

That would be with resorcinol or hide glue! The hide glue gives you a little wiggle room like thickened epoxy. The resorcinol bond face had to be perfectly mates and smooth or it would fail.

Yanmar 2 GMF in good condition

Well, other than that pesky broken connecting rod anyway.

A deal at only $1500.

Lol! Yeah everything else works great...because con rods just snap for no reason, and NEVER do any collateral damage when they do....
