Description: This 43' lod never launched "new" steel cutter is a completed George Sutton design hull and deck ready for you to finish and sail the adventure!!!. Welded by a master ship welder who said he tried to engineer out the most common shortfalls of sailing vessels. For example seachests welded into the hull for drains so first fitting is above the waterline. There is no rigging or interior but the stringers are predrilled or tabbed for easy interior construction. When completed you will register as new build. I have plans and books that will show you how to complete her. It is built for bluewater cruising or circumnavigation. 10,000 # lead ballast and two 100 gallon diesel tanks are built into the full keel. Stainless steel fittings are welded into the hull: all cleats, stanchions, chainplates, hatch tabs, boom gallow etc. attachment points. This is to prevent rust streaking at wear points. All were painted over to prevent galvanic corrosion. Zinc bolt sites are welded. This makes everything stronger than just through bolting. Winch plates are to be welded into the ss rings on cockpit coaming after the bases are cut out. The boat is coated inside and out with 3-10 coats of epoxy. The builder blasted to white metal and sprayed 3-5 coats of epoxy paint and i have added over 30 gallons of additional epoxy coats. Plating schedule: 1/2" plate steel base of keel, 1/4" keel sides, 3/16" dished steel hull, 10 guage deck, 12 guage cabin top. Aluminum dodger. Framing/ Stringers (2"x5/16" bar) are 14" on center (except at the turn of the bilge where they are 6") and longitudinals are 40" on center. Deck is stiff and solid. Bowsprit is a work of art with two anchor stations. Priced at less than half of what it would cost to weld up today. Located 15 minute drive from 2 shipyards, that can complete and launch for you, that are in navigable water to sea. Requires tractor trailer special transport. I have the number for the guy that brought it to my place.
This is a unique, incredibly well built and rare vessel. I am sure i will regret selling her.

Equipment: Bronze steering quadrant and bearing, bronze ports, SS stanchions, rudder and rudder shoe/grudgeon, lead ballast, books on how to finish. Sailplans, table of station offsets-only makes sense to a builder.
