On a pool lounger, pampering my car wreck injury, I went looking for a
wooden sailboat for sale on Boat Trader and came up with this 38-foot 1952 custom ketch. The photos alone are worth checking out the listing.
Currently in storage with a shrink wrap cover, it’s built of 1 1/4 African Mahogany on oak frames. The deck was replaced in 1988. She’s fit with original varnished sitka spruce spars with stainless steel rigging. The full length mahogany rudder is keel hung. Coverboards and trim are teak. Power is from a Volvo diesel with unknown condition. Ad says it’s offered at a discounted price in hopes an “enthusiastic new owner” will take over. Meaning YOU.
