Penobscot Quoddy Pilot Sloop

Saw this listing, and called on it.
I wasn't sure what was meant by 'composite' hull material. Turns out it is a wood hull with a high-tech coating of some sort of epoxy, I'm not real sure what.
But, she's a beautiful vessel. Gaff rigged, somewhat spartan on amenities, like no shore power or interior heat. She seems quite roomy, has a nice design from an 1880's Maine sardine sloop.
The broker told me that she is a massive boat, he's never seen any like her. The mast is like a sequoia attached to the hull. He was very impressed. Nearly 22,000lbs.
The heat problem could be overcome with a stove from Navigator stove in Seatlle ( Traditional Cast Iron Marine Stoves by Navigator Stove Works,Inc. ). Shore power could be done rather easily, if wanted. No refrigeration, an icebox.
The pics are well worth looking at.

Only saw the video, but what a deal, if you want a traditional boat. This was not cheap to build...
