  • My Jochems was built with water ballast tanks as specified. It also came with about 400 kg of lead blocks which former owners thought was necessary for stability. Will give you sailing ballast report once I launch her next year. Good luck with your build! Do you know if Bjorn Harbo sold his Jochems in Oslo?

  • I bought the Jochems Family Schooner originally built by Bill Jochems, modified by Doc Musecamp and most recently owned by Grover Pagans of Corpus Christi. Grover was kind enough to drive it up here from Texas in July. The well-travelled hull of the "Blue Moon" now sits on its trailer on Cape Cod via Lake Mead, SF Bay, Lake Winnebago and Galveston Bay. I plan to launch her next...

  • I have a Micro in Cape Cod that I sail every summer in Buzzards Bay. It was built in 2002 by David Jost, who chronicled his labors both here on the Yahoo Bolger Group and on his website. Like you, I am more of a sailor than a builder and am closing in on buying a larger boat. I concur with Mason that Micro is a terrific sailor and while you won't win many races, especially upwind...

  • I may be selling a 2002-built Micro now in Cape Cod. The builder was David Jost and he thoroughly chronicled the quality of his build here on this yahoo group and on his own website. I will sell if a purchase negotiation on another boat works out. --Rob Gogan

  • Interesting question about how to get rid of an unwanted wooden boat... here are a couple of thoughts from a professional recycler: 1. Reusing is always better than disposal. If you can't sell an old boat, donate it to one of the many museums, boatbuilding yards or schools that are looking for projects. "Messing About in Boats" or Wooden Boat" classified ads might tempt a reader to...

  • Good notes on an important topic. Loath as any cruiser is to surrender dry storage space, the foam volume Phil specified fore & aft is an essential element of Micro's seaworthiness. In a knock-down, such as the one described by Bernie Wolfard in one of Elrow LaRowe's early Micro newsletters, which occurred on the windy Columbia River gorge, foam could be the difference between...

  • Thanks for posting the gorgeous photos Bruce! I have about 50 more which my wife Frann took on Sunday. I will try to post them tonight. The low little bright-decked sailing hot rod was designed and built by its sailor, Daniel Noyes of Ipswich MA. He calls it a Bolger-inspired mini-sandbagger. He has designed other boats as well. The rowing canoe rig, an aluminum Radisson from...
