I have a Bill Garden designed Pinky Schooner that I’ve owned for about 16 years, she was built in 1951. I’ve lived aboard for about 5 of those years, including a year at the northwest school for wooden boatbuilding in Port Townsend. She is registered in BC, but is also a documented vessel with the US Coast Guard and has had use tax paid in Washington State. I’ve done two major refits on Sea Lark since I’ve owned her, once to replace some hull planks and once to build a new mast. I began to restore the decks to brightwork a few years ago and have to face the fact that I’ve run out of steam, and now I’m getting ready to move for work. The boat is safely protected in a boathouse with the masts down, but I need to find someone to take her over. She’s a lovely schooner, yellow cedar on oak, with a great history and a solid yanmar engine. There’s more information at and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions! (I care much more about her going to a great new home than I do the sale price, but her last survey had her at about $25k USD and at my $8k asking price we’re getting pretty close to what I’d get if I parted her out, but that would be a tragic end to a fantastic old girl. Interesting trades, etc. are also considered.) Thanks!
