Never seen a bad Morris yet! I always coveted his Chuck Paine designed boats.

Oh man, nice boats. When I was a cadet at Pensacola, we got the old Naval Academy 44' wooden yawls in '65 when they bought new ones. I was on the cadet sailing team and have fond memories of sailing, sweating and drinking beer on those old boats. The middies that came down during their summer break to "do aviation" to see if that is where they wanted to serve, raced us and waxed our behinds. These look like very nice boats and appear well maintained. Anyone in Annapolis want to bid for me? 2 interesting 44 footers pop up here in two days.

What are the primary winches in the cockpit?? They look like grinder winch drums but don't see the coffee grinders stations on the boats. They looked to be very used. Notice the treadmaster is deteriorating on one and equipment missing like a head and winch drum. Definitely nice boats if you could get them at a decent price so it would be practical to bring them back to good condition. Not something to bid on without having someone inspect first, however.

I agree, roverhi. I have looked but can't bring myself to buy a boat without an inspection. And by time of close of auction, the price will probably be considerably higher. Que lastima!

Looks like they kept the same names as the ones they replaced. I was lucky enough to crew on the old Luders yawls by the same name that were given to the Coronado Sailing Club. Great experience on those old wooden boats. One of us had to continually man the manual bilge pump to keep them dry.

I think these are the Navy 44 PYD MkI's. I found a PDF on the Mk II's that replaced 'em and it discusses the changes. Very nice boats. Especially if you want to customize an interior and built like a brick sh*thouse!

Here's the MkII presentation to the Navy:

I thought the Navy surplused the McCurdy and Rhodes, what I would call the Mark 1 replacement for the wood Yawls, designed boats a couple of years ago. If these are McC and R boats, I'd be sorely tempted. Loved those boats and have a penchant for boats built like concrete portapotties.

Can anyone verify if these are the Mk1 or Mk2 boats?

One of the Luders 44 that used to come here in the Newport race is now a local boat. One of the most memorable sights for me is to see them giving their salute to Royal Bermuda Yacht Club by sailing thru Hamilton Harbour with chutes in formation. Beautiful boats.

Yup Mk1, these are surplused as the MkII's come "on-line". The MkI's have probably sat around the yard awhile as the military does nothing quickly as regards to old, surplus material.
