110' Crocket Designed Steel Hull Schooner


Description: The Schooner Mystic Whaler was designed by Chum Crockett and built by George Sutton in Tarpon Springs, Florida. She was launched on January 19, 1967. She had a major overhaul in Providence, Rhode Island in 1993. She is a reproduction of a nineteenth century coastal cargo schooner and was specifically designed for passenger trade.
The Whaler is 83 on deck and spar length is 110. Her beam is 25. She draws 7.5 with the centerboard up and 12.5 with the board down. Air draft is 90. She displaces 107 tons and her gross tonnage is 97. Her USCG Certificate of Inspection allows for 60 persons onboard while underway and she must remain within twenty miles of safe harbor of refuge while carrying passengers for hire.
The Mystic Whaler features 15 cabins providing overnight accommodations for 36 guests. Three cabins include en suite head with shower. There are three additional heads (with showers) on board.
The hull of the vessel is 5/16 steel plate from the lower chine down and steel plate from the lower chine up. Masts are steel with 14 diameter. Spars are Douglas Fir. Sails include a main, fore, staysail and jib. The decks are clear Douglas Fir with the quarter deck having been replaced in 2016.

Equipment: Power is provided by a 1967 Detroit 6-71. It was rebuilt in 1982. Electrical power is provided by a 1985 Northern Lights 30KW generator. Both the Detriot 6-71 and the generator are regularly serviced and are in excellent working order. The boat is equipped with an inverter.
Electronics include a Raymarine C90 with integrated GPS/Chartplotter, radar and AIS. There is an additional Garmin 440 GPS onboard. Additional electronic equipment includes a depth sounder and two VHF radios with DSC.
Ground tackle includes two 500 pound Fisherman anchors, each with 300 of 5/8 galvanized chain. The windlass is an Ideal HDA single phase 220 volt.
Two tenders are included. One is a 14 pea pod. The other is a 16 Amesbury skiff powered by a 20HP outboard.
Galley equipment includes a Dickinson Beaufort diesel fired cook-stove, a 55 cubic foot refrigerator with cold plate refrigeration and a 5 cubic foot freezer.
Tankage includes five holding tanks with a combined capacity of 900 gallons. The boat carries 900 gallons of water. It holds a total of 850 gallons of fuel in two tanks. The hot water heater holds 55 gallons and was installed new in February 2016.
In October 2018 the Whaler had its scheduled biennial haul-out. At that time, the main mast was removed for the first time since the boat was launched in 1967, per Coast Guard regulations. The condition of mast appeared to be near original. The mast step is inch plate, all with original paint intact. Previous U/T testing of lowest twelve feet of the mast showed original thickness, and there is no evidence of deterioration any higher. Original crosstree planks were replaced. VHF antenna replaced; antenna wire replaced. The next USCG mast inspection will be in 2043.
Additional work during the haul-out included removal of the center board for the first time since 1988. Minor repairs were made as necessary; the centerboard was pressure tested and recoated with anti-fouling paint; center board zincs were increased from two to six. The center board trunk was also serviced at that time. UT testing was performed per the Coast Guard and readings met standards.
During the haul-out the bottom was found to be in good condition with normal fouling and expected zinc wear over two years. Two coats of anti-fouling paint were applied and all zincs were replaced. The propeller, shaft cutlass bearing and rudder post cutlass were inspected and found to be in fine shape. The cutlass bearings were new in 2016.
The rig was inspected and also found to be in very good condition. Nevertheless, six chainplates on the main mast were replaced, as well as two shrouds, two backstays and the Springstay. (The replacement parts were ordered before the Coast Guard inspection, and replacements probably were not necessary.)
While hauled, various pipes in the engine room were replaced.
