Talking I bought a new to me boat.

Yesterday, I received an email with pics of a boat that a guy I know was connected with. I liked what I saw, went down to eyeball her and bought her on the spot for $20 and back moorage. She's a 1961 Knudson K35 Yawl. She's 35' LOD and 40" LOA with a Perkins 108 50 HP deisel, all the goodies and in great shape. The following is a link to my album with pics of this boat since I can't upload pics to this site for some reason.

Check out what $20 USD can buy...

I'm going back down today to go sailing.

Nope, 679.00 total. I sea trialed her and she moves smartly with that 50 HP Perkins.

Nice ride! But couldn't you negotiate a better deal then $20?

So how does that work...do you purchase the boat from the marina where the moorage/slip fees are owed or do you purchase it directly from the owner? If it's from the marina, how do they acquire the title?

Nice, are you going to have her surveyed? If not, what kind of work does she need?

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.

Oh my. That's a lot of boat to work on. Well, we know she floats...

She's a beautiful boat. Keep us updated on her progress.

Congratulations on the Knutson Pilot. They were essentially the same design as the wooden Hinckley Pilots of that era. The Knutson yard did beautiful work and these were pretty nice boats for their day.

Most were sloops but I see that you found a yawl version. If I remember correctly they came with either cedar planking with galvanized iron fastenings on oak or mahogany planking on oak with bronze fastenings. The cedar was the preferable for performance and so the boats built for Long Island Sound were mostly cedar. The ones that left the Sound were mostly mahagony. A case could be for either planking or fastening. Cedar was more rot resistant but mahogany held fastenings and paint better. Galvanized fastenings were considered stronger and more capable of taking the strains of racing but of course has a shorter overall lifespan and is harder to refasten than the bronze.

Anyway, enjoy....
Jeff
