Seasmoke Is Coming Available Again

The current owner has reached his personal stopping point and is walking away. Over 55% of the hard part is done and there are no secrets left hidden. We have thirty days to line up a new owner or find funds for her storage. After that, she'll meet her original fate.

Re: Seasmoke is coming available again,

I take it something unexpected came up? I hope she finds a home and wish I was in a position to provide it.

Re: Seasmoke is coming available again,

We did find some issues. The decks were unsound. The subfloor of the cockpit and two aft half bulkheads were bad. We discovered this when getting to the sheer clamp after some localized rot was found in the sheer planks and under the toerails (which are toast). The clamp is fine, the bulkheads an easy fix and the hard part of R&R for the decks is done, which is getting the damned things off. We also stripped the interior to verify no busted ribs above the garboard turn after noting planking not being fair (due to started fasteners). This boat has never been refastened and still has number 6 screws in her. All of the broken frames are in the garboard turn, as they were on Lady J so no hard stuff there. Some plank scarphing needs done but that's not too hard either. The old interior can be reused (with some filler for screw holes) or replaced now cheaply. Lot's of good, things about this boat especially her history. I really don't want to cut her up.
