    Description:

    Previous owner used "Practical Junk Rig" book by Hasler/Mcleod as guide.

    Once he built the masts and completed sails, he spent time playing with the boat.

    BOTH MASTS ON TABERNACLES, LAY DOWN EASILY WITH SAILS ON

    (VERY COOL AND HANDY, remove one 1" bolt for main mast, 3/4" for forward,

    mast's will pivot on remaining bolts and lay down securely next to each other

    Hull

    The Hull is sound. No leaks below water line,

    1 " Monel prop shaft 5 ft long, cutlass bearing and stuffing box in good shape,

    Entire Hull covered with 2 layer heavy fiberglass,

    4 layers cloth at water line. Hull seams splined with juniper,

    first layer of glass cloth bonded with 3M 5200 urethane (10 gallons),

    remaining layers with "West" system epoxy: 1st layer cloth & epoxy,

    2nd layer has 50 micron copper mixed in epoxy to help keep bottom clean,

    3rd layer white pigment in Epoxy,remining layers epoxy w/collidal silica

    and micro ballons for fairing.

    A pin hole deck leak that caused wood rot inside and that probably existed for

    5 to 10 years has just been discovered sealed and fixed in 2017 using epoxy.

    (2) 5ft-5/4" rough cut WHITE OAK boards and epoxy will be left for new owner

    to finish the sealed and epoxied ribs.

    Entire boat has been tested thru snow ice and rain to be leak proof now.

    Very roomy and at least 6ft headroom most areas

    cockpit also boasts lots of room and great for

    entertaining your friends and to have them over.

    Deck needs some cleaning and paint. The leak area

    has been fixed w/epoxy using fiberglass cloth,

    chopped strand and collidial silica.

    hatch cover eventually would need to be replaced

    Engine

    Engine is a two cylinder DIXD Hercules diesel made in 1943,

    Original engine manual

    (2) spare injectors,

    (2) spare high pressure injector fuel lines,

    (2) spare injector pumps

    "Keel cooler" mounted to transom below water line,

    thru hull above waterline

    Stainless Dry exhaust w/ stainless muffler,

    no thru hull fittings on boat below water line (except prop shaft)

    very simple engine but heavy for its 15 hp (500 lbs.).

    These have a very good reputation and they keep on going and going.

    Misc

    Electrical panel is functioning but needs to be replaced and

    a new panel is included in the sale.

    Bottom and Prop cleaned in 2016. Prop cleaned

    also October 2017. Both will probably need

    cleaning again and bottom should be painted

    next time it is out of water.

    There are literally hundreds of pics and documentation

    from previous owner which go thru the early construction

    modifications and the use of the boat. THese will be forwarded

    to the new owner and the new owner will probably need

    them for presentations wherever he or she may sail as

    undoubtedly requests will be made and questions asked.

    Please Note

    Boat currently in water and can remain in slip until you

    want to move it. Have a very favorable rate which could

    be renegotiated. Can be sailed away after sea trials and

    few adjustments. Also note that you do not need to do any

    major repairs or modifications to sail her away as she is.

    A new bilge pump installed in 2017 is needed to be moved

    and fixed to a permanent location in the engine bay

    before getting ready to sail away after trials if I am not

    able to get to do this with previous owners help.

    Additional Info:

    To get more ideas on how to do the interior and what colors you may want to use

    please look at the link below of a very similar boat that went on sale recently.

    I have included the ornamental side wood for front and other extra wood to be used

    for the interior. Also I have included an extra sink.

    Let me know if an questions.

    Of note is that Daisy Mae has more battens in the sails than

    Dragon Lady and you can lay the masts down on Daisy Mae but doesn't

    look like you can on Dragon Lady and Daisy Mae also looks a bit

    less top heavy than Dragon Lady. Ok sorry - no pirate included with Daisy Mae.

    I am going over to the marina to take the pics

    of masts down on the tabernacles which I will post soon.

    It is about a 4 hour drive one way for me to get to the

    marina but will get there as soon as I am able.

    Also previous owner is putting all the hundreds of pics

    he has on a thumb drive which I will pass on to new owner.

    I will also check when previous owner is available for Q&A.

    Please let me know if any questions at sspdrd@yahoo.com

    or thru JRA. I am new here and still learning to sail and

    Daisy Mae would be good for some one who has sailed before.

    Sorry about the long post, I just read thru what I wrote

    and I almost forgot - $3200 (will accept bitcoin)

    Thanks

    PS

    I am adding a few more pics that I found on my hard drive that the previous owner had given me.  These are a few years old but will give you an idea.

    Here's an interesting little gem, that might have got lost in the current gerfluffle.

    If I were in the States looking for a live-aboard, I'd be "on me bike" right now.

    May I suggest (from the large collection of photos) a couple showing the hull out of the water, and a couple showing the interior accommodations?

    And you mention the past owner available for Q and A.  Some of the little details, such as dry exhaust and keel cooling, suggest there has been an "operational" rather than a "yachting" influence in the evolution of this boat and I would be interested to know more. How about asking the owner to write up a little article for the magazine, I for one would be interested to know how this all came about, and others may be as well - it could be a win/win for you too.

    ....

    Ah, I see a couple more photos, I think I saw something about this on the internet somewhere, a year or two ago...

    Interesting boat! Too bad for some of us that it's on the *west* side of the USA. That's about 3000 miles on the bike…

    Shyam, if you make a listing for this boat, with an easy link, maybe some of us could pass it around. Seems like a person could do some really good things, sailing off in that boat.

    Thanks for letting us know about it, and Graeme, for bringing it back to the surface.

    Yes more pics coming soon!

    Previous owner has lots of stories to tell and he is a retired former NASA engineer and I would agree with you that there has been both an "operational" and a "yachting" influence.  He is putting together all the pics in one place for me as we speak.

    I think he would probably be agreeable  to your suggestion about writing an article but he also has lot of demands on his time.  I had the benefit of hearing it first hand and also see the pics which were of course a thousand word article in themselves.

    I am very lucky to meet him as he showed me and helped me to repair the leak with epoxy and other materials.

    It has been raining non stop here in the Washington DC Potomac River Chesapeake Bay area for the last 3 days at least and it is forecasted to continue for next few days.  I will try to get to the marina sometime next week.  Thanks

    I just got a reply back from the previous owner and he has provided me with a short video.  It is from June of 2010 before he had his heart attack in November of the same year.

    https://app.box.com/s/aab6jjgt648uzswienzf4ln2oc62lq8w

    Let me know if any questions.  I have also attached another pic.

    Please let me know if the video doesn't work.  I may have done it wrong.  When I tried it I had to download it and play it.

    That is the left coast indeed! Thanks very much for the link – I'll post that over at the International Junk Rig Facebook group.

    The video worked for me also, and as you said, I had to download it first. But it's not that big, so it wasn't a problem. It was fun to see.

    Cheers,

    Shemaya

    Good to hear that worked for you Shemaya.  Thanks for the feedback.  Hopefully I can get over to the Marina next week to post the pics of the interior that many are asking for.  

    It is surprisingly roomy boat inside which I liked a lot, a marked difference compared to the westerns hulls.  Thanks
