Hi all,
I am interested in buying a wooden K that could use some work. I would love to work on restoring one. Is anyone interested in selling?
Thanks so much,

I just found this site in my quest to get some info on K boats. My dad knew Murray, we used to own and sail K-10, which we bought when I was a boy. We had a cottage on Keuka Lake and used to compete in the races that Mr. Wright used to hold at his farm, on the east side of Keuka. Neighbors of ours, one cottage away also had a K boat, I think it was K-6. A note to a comment about the cockpit shape: The aft end of the cockpit was square, (and uncomfortable to lean against on a long, downhill run home in the afternoon; a boat cushion helped). I have some pictures of our boat. I'll see how they scan, if anyone would like to see them.

Thanks, Paul French

Smile Ah K boat

I remember the K boat very well. In fact I help build many of them when Murray Wright sold them to Wright boat Company In Canandaigua NY. Owed By Shepard Marine Inc on the city pier.. We made them in fiberglass though, Lol I still have a pair of coverals that got covered in Orange Jel coat when we were unloading 55 gal drums of it. Great Boat I sailed many of them, To bad the molds got burned up in a fire. I love to have one. Hard to find any parts for them now a days. Yep sure do miss those days, Shepard sold that buisness along time ago I worked for them for over 20 years great people. I believe the YMCA camp on canandaigua Lake still has 2 or 3 of them still. I have a lot of memeories of that boat.
