Humber Yawl FLUTE for sale

We hear from David and Irene Carrick that this magnificent 20ft canoe yawl is for sale:

This lovely yawl inspired by George Holmes’s EEL is now in fine condition dimensions = LOA 21ft (27ft over spares) beam 7ft, draught 3.5 ft. Built in 1978 by Ian Cooper at Waterhead Windermere of local larch on oak with clear pine spars. She was extensively rebuilt by Jamie Clay 2000 – 2001. Sleeps 2 in newly varnished and painted cabin.All hull decks and bright work  is now A1 and she is stunning! after many hours work.Rigging is as new and FLUTE is ready to move on its purpose built trailer in North Yorkshire. The engine is out , my aim was to use sail and oar.Regretfully I have had to take the decision to find a new owner for this fine craft,due to a recent accident.

David and Irene are asking £4.950. If you are tempted by FLUTE—and who wouldn’t be?—please use our Contact page to be put in touch with the owners.

David Moss 13-footer For Sale

We are very tardy in putting up David Wilkie’s lovely 13-foot David Moss canoe yawl, and you, prospective new owner, are fortunate she is still available! She has good paintwork, ‘reasonable’ varnish, original sails in good order, and a galvanized trailer with new wheels and bearings. David is asking a reduced price of  £3,450, and you can use our Contact page to be put in touch with him.

David Moss boats are like hens’ teeth; your Editor has owned, and had much fun with, both 13 and 15 foot versions. Don’t hang about!

A dispatch from Vancouver Island

George Kruzynski on Vancouver Island (We live a few minutes away from the Jespersen yard as well as Bill Garden’s island—sadly now for sale) has written to us with pictures of his (L F Herreshoff) Rozinante Evangeline:

“Given that lousy weather is approaching, some of your afficionados might be interested in making a windvane of their yawl similar to the one I made for my workshop. Blew up the LFH plans and cut the profile out of a piece of plywood. Got our local sailmaker to sew up a suit of bona fide sails. Bicycle wheel axle for a bearing. Been happily dealing with 3 years of blustery weather thus far.” Read the rest of this entry »
