A capable and attractive small cruiser with some notable voyages, in North American waters, under its belt. Some 40-50 examples of Rob Roy were built in GRP by Marine Concepts of Florida, from 1980 to the 1990s, reportedly to a high standard of construction and fit-out. Honnor Marine in the UK built at least one, but their moulds were destroyed in 1997 during a change of ownership of the company. Plans are still available from Ted Brewer.

    Since I also have a Potter, I’ve been on the trailer sailor for a few years.
    The Nimble site there has accepted me as one of there own.
    But I still check here almost daily, us Robbers gotta stick together.

  • Ah don’t get me started on Comcast! I think I may ditch the canoeyawl forum as hardly anyone uses it, I just enabled self-registration on the site (which has to be approved) but that just opened the gates to the usual spam merchants. Life’s too short! There are plenty other forums out there, eg WoodenBoat.

  • Jim Noonan:

    Dick,
    Don’t risk the forum site to spamers just on my account. I may someday win the battle with the comcast stinkers. The canoe yawl website you have put together is one of the nicest and most well maintained sailing sites I have found. I visit it at least 3 times a week. Just washed, waxed and admired my RR23 (Lizzy Tish) today; all is good with the world. Dick, you do a wonderful job mastering this website and I (we) appreciate it!

  • Rick Robinson:

    I am the new owner of Jim Martin’s Rob Roy 23. Needs maintenance and am interested in incorporating some, if not all, of Capt Fred’s upgrades. The Rob Roy is just the ticket after sailing my Sovereign America MudHen 17 (rigged as a sloop) for the past 2 years. Have owned and sailed a number of boats in the past 30 years including a Stevenson Weekender (which I built), a ComPac 19, Cape Dory 25 and Westerly 26. Anticipating that my satisfaction with the Rob Roy 23 will end up with me sailing her to the end of my days….hopefully for the next 30+ years…that is if 60 is the new 40….Ha!

  • Sorry, I neglected to include my website http/www.biophilia.net and my email biophilia@gulftel.com If they are of any use. Dick, if it is available somewhere else herein please just omit it here. Thanks

  • Al Fink:

    Oh, lucky me! I shall be the new owner of Capt. Fred’s lovely Rob Boy 23 after nine years aboard a 1986 Nor’Sea 27 aft cabin sloop. I realize what a piece of history I shall have and promise to respect the fine work that Fred has done to his Tupelo.

  • Rick Robinson:

    What works best on the Rob Roy for outboard propulsion? Short or long shaft? 6-8-or 10 hp? I’d like to get a motor with an alternator to keep the batteries somewhat charged so I have running lights for night sailing and in the cabin. What fits best in the motor well. Mine was purchased with a Suzuki 4 hp 4-stroke long shaft, but the powerhead and integral gas tank require removal of the motorwell cover.

  • Bill Empsall:

    Rick, A short shift is all that is needed in the well. I have been looking for a new motor with a charger as well, but I haven’t found one that will work. The problem is the fore and aft measurement. I think boat was or in ally designed around the Honda motors from the 80’s. My current motor is a Suzuki 6 he 2 cycle long shaft.

    I’m looking for pros and cons on back stays.
