Re: Please give me a heading for classic wooden boat gaff cutters in small sizes

nematon785....Have you considered driving north to Port Townsend in Washington state?

For decades now they have been branding their town as the wooden boat capitol of at least the west coast if not the world. Nice place to spend a long weekend vacation!

Re: Please give me a heading for classic wooden boat gaff cutters in small sizes

Wow! thank you all so much! plenty to chew on for a while. There is something very interesting about developing a tackle rig to haul a yard or hoist even more canvas rather than a few turns around a winch, I also like the common sense function of a bulwark to stand on while heeled over. roller furling, autopilots and reefer madness are comforts to enjoy down the road when I've earned my stripes. Likely I will continue sailing GRP for quite some time, albeit simplified hanked and tiller steering GRP! Meanwhile, I will lust for my own wooden, canvas, and hemp coastal classic beauty.

What you describe fits a Crocker yawl perfectly. Lots of them up this away in Maine. Also might look into British sailing trawler conversions. Go to the google images.

If you're not a subscriber to WoodenBoat magazine you should be! I've been a subscriber since the '80s & still get excited when my new issue shows up.

This is an event I've wanted to see for a long time. I've been to the WoodenBoat Show at Mystic Seaport which is really great & this looks like it could rival or even surpass that.
