"Jack of Hearts" was built basically to plans, with some minor
changes to enhance strength and construction, such as an arch over
the transom. Built of 9mm (3/8") Okkume BS1088 ply, with a double
bottom (that's 3/4 inch!). Epoxy used throughout, it's very well
built and solid. The very few fasteners left in during construction
are marine grade silicone bronze or stainless. The boat is on a
trailer, a heavy duty sigle axle with full sized tires. Boat is
equipped with a 2 year old, 4hp 4 stroke Nissan short shaft outboard
in great shape that can be purchased with the boat or not.
Boat is located in CA, and has been mostly day-sailed in the SF bay,
with occasional visits to Monterey. Boat performs very well,
doesn't go to weather as good as a sloop, but it's great fun and a
very reassuring boat to be in the ocean (or local lake).
The cabin is very comfortable and roomy, I've spent several
overnights on the boat, and am still amazed at the interior space.

I hate to let the boat go, but it's time for another project, so I'd
like to see "Jack" go to a good home, and be happily sailed for
years and years to come....
Price is negotiable.
