Description: COMPLETELY RESTORED FALMOUTH CUTTER. This ship was restored to the highest standards. Falmouth cutters are brilliantly designed vessels. Not only can you sail her around the world, but you can also put her on a trailer and drag her anywhere you want. I dragged Dora Rose to my house (no yard fees, connivence, and always having the right tool for the job) and recently completed a year and a half overhaul ; full engine maintenance (belts, fluids, filters, oils, etc.), removed almost everything inside and outside on the boat, faired the hull, fiberglassed old holes, reinforced the cabin sole with stringers and fiberglass, removed years of old paint from all the teak, used epoxy primer and two-part paint, painted bottom, topsides, decks, interior, bilge (pictures will show this), new non-skid, rebedded everything for years to last with butal above the waterline and 4000 & 4200 below. Replaced all gaskets, port gaskets replaced, new bronze and stainless steel mounting bolts, larger stronger backing plates, purged all tanks (heater, stove, fuel), inspected and restitched all sails with a sailrite sower, had the trailer professionally refit with new wiring, new hydraulic disc brakes, sanded, primed, and painted. I have done much more, if you questions or would like to see additional photos ( I have more of the overhaul) please call or email me. I have all receipts and manuals. I also have a binder with information of the history of this Falmouth cutter. This is a fabulous Falmouth Cutter.

Equipment: Accommodation
Lyle Hess out did himself with this design, the interior layout is ingenious for a ship of this length. A nice salon area midship with two quarter berths port and starboard, a beautiful slid out table forms a dinette, the galley is on port side, there is stainless steel sink with 35 gallon tank, a two burner gimbaled stove, and a beautiful cozy cabin heater for those chilly nights, there is a stand up navigation station to starboard, fore cabin is a double berth with a port-a-potty, head room is 6', there is enough storage on the vessel to prepare for a substantial voyage, a large forward hatch provides ample light and ventilation, a oil lamp creates a beautiful ambiance and a 12v bronze light in main salon and one in the fore cabin.

Hull, Deck, and Ground Tackle
There is no better built than a Sam L. Morse vessel. A solid fiberglass hull is hand laid with a robust layup, and internal lead ballast in place. Bulkheads are 3/4" marine plywood boned directly to the hull on both sides. A 1" foam barrier is installed between the bulkheads and the hull. The cushion prevents hard point failures of the hull after years of yielding to force of the sea. There is a great video online explaining in great detail the process of constructing these overbuilt vessels.
