Uisce Run | 2014 Passage of a Chesapeake Sharpie yawl
for the whole sorry tale.
Actually, the hulk/hull was, as advertised, unsinkable and in fine condition. If I had had more money
this vessel would have been a good deal.
However the topsides were incredibly rotten and I was unable to make her seaworthy
with the time and funds available. Indeed on her first sail in wind
over 10 knots the mast
came down - because the tabernacle planks cracked. They were not rotten but overly weathered and a little too weak by design. I had bought an additional through-bolt to brace them and it was top of the list of things to do that day, but the mast
came down before I had the chance!
If they had been braced (i.e. with some 6" steel
I had on hand), probably she would have made it all the way up, after which the topsides could have been replaced and the slow leak into the main cabin
found and fixed.
But I didn't have the funds and so the boat
was destroyed. No-one was hurt.
