    Default Atkins 22ft Sailboat? What is it --any info appreciated

    Looking for a new owner who might want to restore her. Located Kingston, NY as seen in photos
    IN a garage for years but has been outside and possible restoration considered. Any thought on this one.

    My guess would be "Lagoon". Listed as 21ft in the Atkin information.

    Probably easier to build from scratch

    It looks like a lovely old boat. If the wood is good above the waterline it might be worth restoring. It could be expensive, but that would largely depend on the skills of the restorer. Cutting new pieces to fit the existing boat might be easier and cheaper than building a new boat. I guess it depends on just how much of the boat is still good. Atkin kept boats of this type pretty simple to be practical for the home builder. If there is a professional in your neck of the woods who has done this type of restoration on wooden boats, he would be the best one to ask. Just be prepared to kiss some money goodbye . Best of luck - John

    How many thought the same about your Coupville? (spelling), or any other strip plank boat in need of repairs?

    All before I got her.....for 50 bux.
    And now that I have 8 grand invested in her, she still has no real value.
    The first $1000 was just to bring her home....same as this boat.

    I'm not too quick to condemn an old boat, though this appears to be a lot of work. If it's the boat you want and will use, go ahead and restore it. It will never be worth the money and labor you put into it, but that is true of most of our projects. I wouldn't be afraid to modify her construction where it would expedite completion. Good luck with her whatever you decide, keep us posted.

    If the boat is on Long Island I'd be willing to look at it for you. Whether it's worth restoring or fixing up enough to go sailing only you can decide. Opinions based only on photos, while often helpful, can be misleading. It's always a good idea to have another set of eyes on a project before committing to sizable project.

    You did at least know what you was in for, and im sure your comment was just to make aware the implications of taking on an old boat. Fair to say the majority here have most likely poured more money into their boats than can be recovered on sale, but also fair to say that those same people, me included, have gone in knowing that.......you could waste the same money sat at home drinking your favourite wet stuff, whilst keeping the skin on your knuckles. I like the build process as much as the sailing, but admit its cheaper to find a boat ready to go almost anywhere. Dont know what the OPs skill set is or desires down the road or if he has cash to burn .

    Nifty looking boat.
    As a result of your post, I ordered plans for the Lagoon from Atkin Boat Plans.

    At your convenience, could you provide a few more construction related photos of the boat (or ask the owner to send an email to me?)

    Thank you.

    From the description linked above:

    Condition He has removed the swing keel casing trunk and the boat needs a new keel down the entire length. Stem as well. Possible rot lower transom. Bottom is very punky and would most likely need replacing. Inside ribs mostly in nice shape. He has what is left of the rudder. Decks not so good.
    In other words, there's really nothing there to restore. I'd keep looking.

    The boat is near Kingston NY and we are assisting the owner in finding a new loving owner who wants such a project. Boat Donations at www.hrmm.org

    Good luck, it would be nice if someone saves her and sails her.
