No, my friend, it was a sad day when I sold her. Luckily, my life with great boats continues.

Love wooden boats. This cutter is gorgeous. Though they do say that the two best days of owning a boat are the day you buy it, and the day you sell it. :)

What I would give to have joined you on one of those trips.  I grew up spending summer weekends on my dad's Catalina 36 sloop.  Very modern and comfy, but I've had a taste of real ocean cruising and wooden boats (we recently acquired a Hoby Fast Cat, though her hull is fiberglass) and plan to make it out to the great blue as soon as I can.  Lake sailing is fun and easy, but sure does feel restricting after you've seen the real seas.

Thanks for posting this!  Not nearly enough sailboats/boating in general on the boards here.

She's 32' gaff rigged cutter, Burmese teak hull. No longer have her as I sailed her more than 6,000 miles and threw the anchor ashore for various landlocked jobs. Into OPB now ( other peoples' boats). Still have my first wooden boat, though.

Wow what a beauty!  How long have you had her/when was she made?  She's not an all-wood hull, is she?
