    Default Seattle C.L.

    Call me a philistine, but I can't help but look at this listing and think favorably of the recycling associated with the "Building Arabella (An Atkin Ingrid)" thread in Building/Repair.

    https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/b...376857799.html

    The 12-ton centerboard sounds implausible, but I've been wrong before.

    No financial interest, etc.

    That there is a Heine Dole design.
    I think a comma is missing between 12-ton and centerboard.
    He was a buddy of mine.

    Ah, the benefits of local knowledge. I was completely unfamiliar with him but a quick search shows I have some interesting reading ahead. Our hosts have a listing for the design in the form of KATIE FORD moving along nicely with no fuss - https://www.woodenboat.com/register-...ats/katie-ford

    Thanks for the nudge.

    I know Katie Ford quite well, have sailed on her, cruised alongside of her and observed her progress over the years even through a change of ownership. The current owners, Barry and Donna Goss are excellent caretakers and she's just as sweet and trim inside as well. I have a number of photos of her under sail, interior views and even a series taken in Port Townsend while she was undergoing repairs. I'll see if I can dig them up.
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    After looking at the KATIE FORD entry, it's clear the design's displacement is 12-tons and she has a steel centerboard. "Mystery" solved.

    " I wouldn't paint my asshole gray." Heine Dole on changing a yachts blue trim to gray.This from the guy who was head N.A. at Astoria Marine during the WW2. Built a small fleet of vessels for the USN. All gray.
    "Guys like us, cannot rely on beginners luck anymore." A gem from him to me.
    "Paint her green, Lad" . Heine to me. In regards to what was wrong with my white Ducati Diesel. (He honed the cylinder , that helped too).
    It's more important for a boat to let go of water than to grab it". Common sense to many of us now, not so much to me when I was 30.
    "A tame painter is all a boat need to avoid restoration". He loathed the idea of a boat needing "restoration". His term "tame painter" .
