I have just built and launched a fourty foot on deck fifty foot overall completely traditionally built friendship sloop. it is gaff rigged and sails beautifully and looks lovely. I am a shipwright by trade and now live aboard. I can do my work from the cockpit when tied up. One of the worlds leading magazines has just sent a journalist who documented the fine sailing qualities and appearance. I have owned many fibergalss sailing vessels all with good features, however this boat is truly a ship which takes ten foot seas like a duck. we have strong currents and strong winds on the north west coast, so i have a fifty horse isuzu in it. i dont put up sails in less than ten knots of wind as my idea of sailing means going somewhere....im glad to have built it the sense of history and the exercise are fabulous. Like the many wooden trollers which still populate the coast here, two weeks of bottom painting and touch up are required each year...but i love it..what else do you want to do with your life? This vessel is built with yew wood frames, and the finest stainless fastenings and made fittings, varnish work is kept to a minimum....its got the original work boat painted finish...ill post a pic for you soon. Any boat takes work to keep up and money. Traditionall boats take work and ingenuity or creativity and less money.....I think its great fun and am about to sail around vancouver island.....so thanks all and bye for now sinerely Mike

How do I post a pic from my I phone doesn't seem to copy and paste. Can't say the mag yet. Boat was built on a wilderness beach with no hydro and no roads so all was bought in by sea through the surf. Thanks mike

The pic probably has to be hosted somewhere like photobucket, then link to this site.

Friendships have always interested me, 'don't think I would ever own one, but their history is an interesting one. They were a throw away boat, lobster men used them for a single season and then built a new one over the winter. Average cost to build one in the late 1800s was about $500.00 or 12K in todays dollars... You could not even begin to build one for 12K now days I doubt.

Re: Friendship Sloop

Alan,

What are the dimension of Resolute? Wood or Glass? LOA, etc.

There isn't a device on this world that can measure the indifference I have for that statement.
