Two Stern-Steerers For Sale

If these two boats aren’t sisterships, then they certainly are cousins. Both come from Rhode Island, both gaff rigged, and both have the same lovely hollow in the bow of the fuselage.
The one below is located in Mass and is available to a good home for $500.oo. Write to Peter at:

The other is in Brownville Junction, Maine. It’s been hanging in the garage for many years. It is complete and comes with a couple sets of runners, but the cockpit floor needs replacing. There are no digital photos, but I’ve seen old fashioned prints and am fairly convinced that she is related to both Tippy, below, and the one for sale above, in Mass. She has a mixture of bronze and galvanized hardware, is driftwood grey, and is called Grey Falcon. $200.oo Call Walter Cook at 207-965-8410

In an ideal world both these boats would sail in Maine with Tippy, forming a rare beast: a stern-steerer one-design class.

Ben is looking happy here, but imagine the joy to have all three of these craft zipping along together. Also curious that Tippy’s shade of green is identical to the boat in Mass.

And there’s room for the whole family:

    Hi—

    I am very interested in Peter’s stern-steerer. Could you please give me his e-mail ( or other) address?

    Say, when I saw Brownville Junction in this post my ears perked up. Didn’t I have a guide canoe down stairs, purchased about forty years ago that was built there? Could it be the guy that built the iceboat may have also built this sweet eight footer? If boats could talk, what a tale they would spin. Best. Don Stearns

    My friend Jimmy Matheau sent me this posting because we’ve been talking all summer about me acquiring a boat. The email says contact Peter at but there is not address. How do I contact the Mass boat owner? Peter C Schultz

    What is address/contact information for boat in MA?

    Worst case, what would replacing cockpit floor entail?

    Regards, Ed

    From a practical perspective , the hull of Tippy can be lifted by two. It could be carried on a heavy duty truck lumber rack. I have Tippy on a long tonged boat trailer from which she sticks out enough so I can get the runner plank and runners on while she is still on the trailer, also the two forward stays. I did spend some real money on a custom fitted cover whose design I will happily share. It makes everything much easier. My trailer has a top rack so the runner plank and spars can be carried on it. I have tall plywood stand that are designed with working from the trailer in mind. For Tippy I have been lacing the main on with forth and back lacing which is hard on the fingers. I am thinking about switching to a roband with toggles type system to reduce set up time.
