Re: Saroca boat

I have a 1987 Saroca for sale with trailer. $1000 or best reasonable offer. Will consider travel to assist with delivery.

I bought it in 1991 and used it moderately in the first ten years canoeing, sailing and sculling. The next five years I used it lightly, and recent years not at all due to life events.
Currently trailered in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

Saroca is 16-1/2Ft long, ABS plastic, comes with galvanized Holsclaw trailer, mast and boomvang, sail, long and short dagger boards, rudder, canoe paddles, rowing oars with oar locks, Piantedosi sliding seat and wooden sculling spoons, sculling oar locks, hatch covers (need new gaskets and straps).

ronrico66 Does anyone currently have one of these for sale? I am in Florida and would be more than to buy one. If it's missing anything that's ok with me I can build anything that these boats have and once I have one I would be more than happy to build parts sails oars for anyone who would need them I hope to hear some good news

Re: Saroca boat

I purchased a Saroca last week from a fellow in Auburn,CA. He owned it but never used it. Came with three-piece mast, boom, rudder/tiller and dagger boards, (one long and one short). Everything but missing the sail and an oarlock. Even came with a set of beautiful handcrafted Piantedosi rowing oars. (in need of stripping and re-varnish).
I took it out yesterday with a sail that was too big for this boat, (it was of a Wingdingy design from Jim Antrim). It scooted along just fine but now I would like to find a sail for this boat. Anyone got one they would like to sell? I think this will be a great boat for all sorts of exploring and conditions!

Re: Saroca boat

Anyone in the Pacific Northwest have one of these little gems for an affordable amount of treasure? Looking for one of the older fiberglass hulls. A little damage or a few missing bits isn't a problem...for I am a master of repair and the time-honored "jury rig..."a sar

Planning a wee voyage and a saroca looks to be a near-ideal compromise vessel for it.

Thanks all

I need a gudgeon plate and tiller extension. Also the sailing dagger-board. Are any of these parts compatible with parts for other mass produced boats?

Thanks, Bob
