Sharpie Sailors/owners ck in! (flat bottoms)

I've a book learned love for and about sharpies... Looked at few. Saw one that was built in FG at a boat show some yrs ago. Don't remember the manufacture's name. Would like to build one, but most likely never will. (no time for it)

I've not seen it mentioned here on sailnet so maybe they aren't getting equal time?

Possibly sandbaggers, oyster schooners, and other bay boats can be included here too. cat boats, sneakboxes, lightings too!

I really like the statement... "can sail on a heavy dew"

I know I know! "Denise you own a keelboat!"

ok, so who is going to post the question? "what is a sharpie?"

Denise,

You SHOULD build one. You won't regret it. CLC has plans for a relatively simple stitch & glue sharpie: http://www.clcboats.com/boats/sharpie.php

They used to have a kit, don't know what happened to it. Sometimes they discontinue the kits when they're preparing to introduce a new model, sometimes there's just not enough demand. Might be worth checking with them.

no no no.. I/we (son and me) enough canoes and kayacks..I'm happy having a keelboat really! The 2 kayaks we built yrs ago we built from plans.. back when CLC was still selling plans.. Now they ONLY SELL KITS that know of.. We also built not CLC's but 5 strip canoes, restored a couple old oldtown wood/canvas, and even designed and built a "one off" wood canvas solo canoe.

You can build one. They are very simple and itís a type we build here at Hudson Fisheries Trust. The Sharpie named Clare is one of my designs and the hull and rig on her is based on a Sharpie from around 1850 or so. Check out some pictures of her at www.offsoundings.info/clare.htm and also check our company home page at www.fisheriestrust.org to see other boats we have built.
All the best,
Robert Gainer

Hmmm guess flat bottoms don't relate much on sail net. I kinda thought there would be more response to this thread.

Many sailors own sharpie variations without realizing it. The flatish hull that many, many 'modern' boats (esp. racers) have comes from the old sharpie designs, they just stick fin keels on them. True old fashioned sharpies with centerboards and hard chines look like old fashioned workboats, and are tricky to sail - not exactly the most marketable things. Once I start building one (soon, Mikey, soon!) I'll feel more comfortable posting about them. If you want to talk sharpies, try woodenboat forum:

http://www.woodenboatvb.com/vbulletin/upload/

And yes, I think the lines of a sharpie are gorgeous! (and, yes, my wife knows)
