    Default 24' double ended lapstrake sailboat project for sale in Victoria BC

    Named Slocum, could be firewood, hard to tell from the pictures. I emailed the seller for more information.

    Anyone know this design..looks kind of like a double ended fishboat!
    If those are proper bronze opening ports they're probably almost worth $300 a piece (Can)

    Maybe a Bristol Bay Gillnetter conversion?

    Might be a bronze hatch on the foredeck...

    I was wondering about that round hatch. If one had a trailer, if the boat was toast (and it looks pretty worn) as a salvage opportunity this would almost be worth it.

    She has that ‘converted life boat’ look. Still,... worth an interested look.

    One of a kind. Very cool. This boat should come with a thank you note instead of a $300 price tag.

    A bit too fine forward for a ship's lifeboat.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.
