Description: "Patience" is a small traditional pocket cruiser originally built to Nicholas Garcia's "Sea Owl" pilot dory design. It has a dory-shaped carvel hull with a cross-planked bottom. The underwater profile consists of a fin keel and a separate skeg supporting the transom hung rudder. Patience is a hefty little boat, weighing about 1 ton, with 800 lbs of lead ballast.

The cabin is small and simple-- there are accommodations for two people in a v berth, and several shelves. The companionway is a sliding hatch with dropboards and a bug screen. There is a self-bailing cockpit and a large hatch aft that provides access to the lazarette. V-berth and cockpit cushions are included.

The sails (jib and main w/ 1 reef point) and rigging are in good condition. All halyards lead to the cockpit. There is a lifting outboard motor mount on the transom (motor is not included.)

The boat is sitting on a custom galvanized trailer, and can be launched and retrieved at most boat ramps-- this is not, however, a "trailer sailer" due to the extensive rigging and general nature of wooden boats.

Patience performs quite well under sail, and is easy to singlehand. I have owned this boat for six years, having purchased it from the original owner/builder. I've had many great summers with it, daysailing and cruising on the coast of Maine, but no longer have the time, so I'd like to pass it on to a new owner. This is a perfect first cruising boat for younger sailors.
