Re: Knutson K-35

I don't see my reply so I'm trying again. Being new to this site I'm learning. The reason I am considering an old wood Knutson 35 and selling my very nice Nonsuch 30 Ultra is as follows: My father bought a wood boat when I was a kid and I have a fondness for them. I live by the Knutson yard and moor in the same harbor Huntington, N.Y.. I tend to keep boats five to six years. I enjoy working on boats to make them as perfect as possible and then look for my next project. My Nonsuch was made in Canada and popular there but down here most people don't know them.

I think this has to be the longest dead resurrection of a thread I have ever seen. I saw "Oh Joy" back in 08. Nice boat. Wonder what became of it. Charlie got it free and it had Kevlar glassed into the bottom. Tough as nails.

... so what is it about the K35 that is tempting you away from the Nonsuch?

Knutson on the East Coast

A friend of mine just purchased a k-35 yawl. Originally, "Elane" is now on the Sassafras river on the Chesapeake. From what I understand she's in great shape. If I get some pics I'll post.
Surprised how little info there is out there. Any helpful links or sites???

Paulatsea Thank you Charlie, much appreciate, I am going to be moving the boat to fresh water, I have to confirm that wont be a disaster to the hull, and then I think I am good to go. The 50 + is reassuring... I guess that answers the sea worthy questions.

I will keep you posted and send some pictures when I go back out there.

CharlieCobra I don't know what the values are to be honest. As they say, beauty's in the eye of the beholder. As for bad points of sail? I have a modified (by the factory) yawl. I've not found any bad points of sail if the sails are good. I've had Oh Joy out in 50+ several times and the only complaint I have is the amount of work required in a quartering sea but I suppose that any tiller boat would be the same. She is a smooth sailing and fast (for the design) old girl. Pay special attention around the chainplates and look for discoloration of frames below them.

Paulatsea Hi there, I am about to make the plunge into a Knuston 35, it is in great shape.. by this I mean solid, no rot anywhere, extremely well maintained. ( of course I am blinded by this point by the beauty of the boat - it may in fact be full of holes and I am just too awestruck to see them)

Just wondering if you have any advice on what they are worth in top condition? (1958 sloop rig - Diesel westerbrake also great condition ). Also how are they on offshore ( i.e. panama - galapagos ), any dreadful points of sail? Anything you can tell me in general would be much appreciated.

Thank you ever so much!
