    The big one. And use pointy shoes.

    That'll be good training for the trunk repair.

    Now I feel free to post a pic. This shows both why Tom will be making a new centerboard trunk and a very cool classic Culler bilge pump. Gordon is holding the works.

    Yeah, well between goodbasil who started the thread, and the Cape Cod mafia who figured it was worth snapping up...

    Well, that's very cool! One of the prettiest small boats ever, for one of the best guys on the WBF. 'Herself' would be a great name.

    Awfully pretty boat, tho.
    I've sailed a couple of them, both caravel planked. If you want a boat to row well, you can't make it too stable, and this was designed for both sail and oar. I found it a pleasant boat to sail. Not as quick or as safe as a racing dinghy, but a lot less work. It does need the ballast, and would not be a good boat without it.

    What is the ballast, usually, and how much are we talking about?

    Are we sure that is Capt. Pete's Concordia Sloop Boat and not his Buzzards Bay Sloop? I have the plans for both. The Sloop Boat is 17' 7" long and designed for carvel planking. The Buzzards Bay is 18' 8" long and designed for lapstrake planking. The Sloop Boat is lighter and unstayed. The Buzzards Bay has shrouds and is a heavier design.

    I believe Ian is familiar with both. If he says it is a lapstrake Concordia Sloop Boat then that is that. They are both very nice indeed.

    We've had that discussion, and need to put a measuring tape on her to be certain. There are stays on this boat, and it is lapstrake ... but various builders of the smaller version built her lapstrake too (with Culler's blessing), and may have put stays on out of fear of/unfamiliarity with an unstayed rig. So we don't know. What's clear is that the present owner has represented her as the one thing, but without a measuring tape validating LOA and beam, we don't quite know.

    I've done my good turn for the day. I feel fuzzy all over.


    ( NB Buy your US $'s at a Canadian Credit Union. Take it down and pay cash. That is usually the cheapest way. Do let us know about all the loops you have to jump through to get her to Canuckyland.)

    Are you going to get it yourself Tom? When I bought Lady Cliff in Toronto in 2006, I had a shipper bring it here. The process was rather more complicated than I expected, and I hired FedEx as the "shipping agent" to get her through both Canadian and American customs, who each had different requirements.

    Everyone told me it would have been easier if I had been at the border for the deal.

    Plan is that I do it, driving down on a Saturday and back on the Sunday. Great excuse for a road trip, and probably my 20 year old son and I will do it together. Kinda fun - this will be the first such trip in that little Ford Ranger that he and I bought together last year, and which we've been slowly renewing all Summer.

    Awesome, especially the Ford Ranger part. It was built five miles from where I live in a plant that's torn down.

    If you haven't checked into what paperwork you'll need for both customs agencies you might. It was a lot in 2006 - a simple bill of sale was not enough. I had to pay a small duty, but it would have been a lot more if I hadn't used FedEx to do the deal. My boat was $65K yours $10k, so not really that much of a difference.

    At least he's dealing with getting it into Canada instead of into the US. My experience with most US border agents is that you are doing something wrong until you prove you aren't...

    I will indeed check. I had assumed that I would need a bill of sale, and have it for the trailer at least early enough that I could get some New Brunswick plates for it before I go. I had thought about the Canadian customs part, but not the US customs...

    The U.S. presented more challenges, but leaving Canada wasn’t easy.

    For nostalgia sake (and maybe to help Tom) I looked up the sites:

    https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/travel-v...clare-eng.html
    https://www.cbp.gov/travel/clearing-...e-registration

    Note that the US suggests you visit a border protection office to register your purchased goods prior to return. Maybe you could stop at the border on your way down? It might help if you can tell the people there on your return that you did exactly what their guy told you to do.

    Sorry to be a buzzkill. I’m excited about your new boat!
