    Default Albert Strange yawl

    I rarely post here but this is driving crazy. I really really need someone to buy this boat otherwise I may. And I already have a great boat that after years of fixing up and me not having enough time to sail is now ready to just be enjoyed and I absolutely donít need two boats especially not two wooden boats and......help.

    She has been in the water and she has sailed one weekend but this is essentially a new boat built as well as a fine boat builder could, of the best materials, to a great design. She needs to be sailed and cared for! Go for it!

    Wow, that is gorgeous.
    There's the plan, then there's what actually happens.

    Wow! What a beautiful job of restoration was done on that sweet little Alabert Strange yawl! Someone will snap her up I am sure!
    She really deserves an owner who will appreciate and love her. I for one have two 28 foot boats that are classics built of wood. I just don't have time or room for another. Keep us all posted on what happens to that little gem!

    Amazing how £16k gets you practically nothing in many things.........yet can buy a boat like that. Lovely!

    Good deal there...

    Those Strange boats often stay with the same owner for a lifetime. Which it looks like this one did.

    I must agree with everyone, this is one pretty boat with a surprising inside.
    The little sail at the stern just finishes the boat.

    What a beauty! Wrong part of the world for me, but I'm certain she'll find a suitable steward, especially at that price! Please keep us posted and if you find out who buys her encourage them to post here.

    I am wondering how that electric motor performs?

    She would fit in a container and ship to near me if anyone is looking to get me an early Christmas present.

    I hadn't realized how triumphally the Mist saga had ended until I pulled up this thread . The last I read was when she was still sitting on the shore as a derelict . This is a mind blowing transformation . I was intrigued by a detail of the reconstruction listed : " Frames -Iroko alternating with White Oak (sourced from the USA In a flexible state sealed to avoid the need for steaming, a method first used in the USA Construction Industry) ." Was the green Oak simply sealed in plastic to retain its moisture and later steamed , or was some additive used to make it more flexible ? Kerosene ? Maybe the seller is misunderstanding a building technique ,in which ribs are steamed and placed while in a plastic wrap ?
