Caring for a wooden boat is a whole order of magnitude more work than caring for a fantastic plastic one... and doing so for a 41' boat, when you don't have the skills, experience or knowledge necessary can't end well.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

dickerson 41 ketch

I own a 73 Dickerson 36. My understanding of the 41 is that there is only 1 in wood - it was used for the plug for moulds for all the later 41's. I'm pretty sure that Dickerson stopped building any wood boats around 1972-3. So...What year is this> Is it really a Dickerson? If so, It probably is a older 40 footer - one sold in so, so shape a couple years ago in Baltimore for $7,500 on e-bay - you could see thru the seams a few feet above the waterline.

I'd be surprise if this is a 41.

That said, nice boat, but there might be a whole lot going on under the paint & glass.....
Mike

dickerson 41 for sale

i was trying to find the website , which i found two years ago about this perticular model , but found this website . i understand that lots of people think that for that low price there must be something wrong with her . not true . i lost my business due economy and have a major emergency . i wasnt planning to sell her , but finish restoring her ( i am master woodworker) for live a board . the hull is in exellent shape , painted with all grip inside out , did all the woodwork my self . yes , there were lots of problems before , cause top have lightly glassed over , but all that is fixed now . there are no more major repairs needed , just small stuff . yes wood boats need lots of maintenance . she is nice boat , i enjoyed restoring her . when i got her i found there some trophies for winning races back in east coast . cant find that website anymore where this model is described . she is still for sale on craigs list . trying to find right buyer . so far lots of boat dealers calling me . i am looking for some one who is serious and not afraid of little work . oyars

Putting an impermiable coating like Awlgrip on BOTH SIDES of a wood hull is not a good idea. Take a pass.

I'm just around the corner..so-to-speak..from the old Dickerson Boat Yard on La Trappe Creek. However there is a sales person in our yard that used to work for them and has, I believe, a half model of your 41 on his wall..

Did you go see the dickerson?

Did you go see it? Its advertised in craigslist (Nov. 10). at 15k, it seems to good to be true.
I've owned 2 other wooden sailboats, they are expensive and a lot of work, but they are 'wooden'.

thanks for any info

Mike
