Ed Monk, Jr. Sailboat ?

Hey All,

I've been looking everywhere for information on an Ed Monk Jr. design and am having no luck at all.

It's a 28' sloop rigged, canoe stern, with a cut away full keel and a spade rudder that was built at the Skookum Boat Works in Port Townsend (circa 1974?).

I'm beginning to think it's a one off build. It appears (so far) to be a worthy vessel. THICK laid up hull, a Mercedes 2 cyclinder w/ a sail driv.

Anyone know anything about these?

Oh, btw, first time posting, long time reading ........ thanks for all the help to date everyone (give yourselves a hand)

Skookums are well regarded up here in the PNW. Many are beautiful, heavily built edifices of bronze and fiberglass. I would put them right up there with Valiants

I'd like to find out more about the design and am having a heck of a time doing it. I live about 20 minutes from the Skookum boat yard. I guess I could take pictures to them and ask if anyone knows anything.

Yes, your right, this is a classic example of a Skookum built boat. Lot's of bronze and a very thick fiberglass hull.

The boat's in great shape and has been maintained well. dated....very dated.

If you live in Port Townsend, an excellent resource for Monk boats (Jr & Sr) is Port Townsend rigging. Dan Kulin, who knows Ed Monk Jr. personally, will most likely know a good deal about your boat.

By way of anecdote: I came in contact with Dan when I hired his company to build new masts for my Monk Sr. Ketch. Not only did he tell me all the things the previous owner didn't know about the boat, but found a copy of the original hull design blueprints. I must say, I was quite impressed.

Dan Kulin's great. Really nice, honest guy, best rigger in the area and he tends to keep things very real when discussing what needs to be done and how you can go about it.
