Wanted: Black Skimmer, Martha Jane, Dovekie or similar
I am currently in the market for a Bolger boat. Preferably one that is sailable but maybe needs some clean-up/work from disuse. I'm really interested in Black Skimmer, but maybe she is a bit big for my current needs.
Planning trips to Georgian Bay and Martha's Vineyard.
My budget is around 3k max (what can I say, I'm a broke student).
In addition to money, I have a CLC skerry, and possibly a kawasaki ninja 250 motorcycle (well maintained) for trade.
Thanks in advance.

The flat bottomed, radius chine approach was something that PCB first noticed on an O’Day 22 and subsequently used on his Dovekie. It is also a feature on Thames Barges which PCB admired and which influenced a number of his designs…

"Get away without rocker if chines are radiused". This statement could be true, partially true, or not true at all however, it is interesting that many large ships have characteristics of being vertically plumb sides - no rocker - flat bottom - long length - and rounded chines.
