Ed Monk Design

Greetings all,
I just bought a 43' 2" LOD 14' beam, Ed Monk design cutter rigged double ended cruiser. she has a cold molded hull and a center cockpit. I am trying to find more information about this boat. She was originally called Maraya and is out of Seattle. She looks a little like Mainer III. Any information would be greatly appreciated as I have been banging my head against a wall trying to track info down.

Thank you!!

Re: Ed Monk Design

You might want to contact the Center For Wooden Boats in Seattle The Center for Wooden Boats
They have a library that has many of the records from old boat builders and designers in the Northwest. Ed Monk was a legend in this area (I even asked him for a job. Didn't get it but he was nice about it.) I am just finishing up building a small sail boat that is an Ed Monk design.

Re: Ed Monk Design

Ed Monk Sr or Jr? Ed Monk Jr is very much still in the business. He might be the go to guy for you. I have a boat he designed in the 80's. Lines look a little familiar

Re: Ed Monk Design

I am the recent owner of an Ed Monk designed Eagle 40 Trawler. I just made the shift to trawlers after 70 years of sailing in Cuba, the US and other parts of the world. I am interested in discussing my boat with other Monk owners, mostly concerning seakeeping characteristics, etc. I am kind of new on forums like this and need a little help. Any takers?
