SOLD FROM THIS ADVERT! Strider "The Allotment"
STRIDER 24' - professionally built by Palamos 1989
The Allotment is a standard Strider 24 professionally built in glass-fibre by Palamos in 1989. Striders are such fine boats: I've tried to summarise why I love the Allotment below:
- Wonderful for day sailing - great fun, fast (16 knots recorded on a reach in a flattish sea, but typically 7-11 knots in comfortable airs), and she points quite high with her daggerboards and bigger rig giving enhanced performance over the Club
- Easily capable of hopping smartly across to mainland Europe, she sails softly and comfortably on rougher water
- Offering four berths - with the ability to sleep in the cuddy too or the forward trampolines too
- I've never before had a boat that doesn't let in any water at all - but this one doesn't!
- Extensively refitted at cost of £6K in 2013 with renewed standing rigging, running rigging, trampolines and many enhancements.
- Plywood decking aft of the mast with a professionally designed and manufactured removable canvas cuddy (2013) - makes the boat so much more comfortable when it's nippy!
- Tohatsu 6HP Sail pro extra long shaft (2013)
- Genoa and mainsail in serviceable condition, Jib is good and spinnaker and storm jib little used
- GPS self steering mechanism and furling foresail making single handed sailing easy
- The internal accommodation in the hulls has been refinished with soft internal lining
- Effective solar panel keeps battery well charged
- Normal coastal sailing equipment - compass, handheld radio, anchor - chain - warp, fenders etc, but she's not equipped for long voyages; that's not what I have used her for
- Galvanised trailer - takes the boat as removed from water for yard use, or folded down for comfortable long journeys behind even a small car
- Moored in Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne (at same cost as monohull), access to sea 24/7 via locks, and berth available if required
Price: £6,800. I don't want to waste anyone's time so I should say I'm willing to haggle lightly but not to entertain low offers. Please do call me on 07830 146884 or email
. Obviously I have many more photos.

Professionally Built Duo
Our Skoota was beautifully built by Josh Turner of Wheelhouse Woodworks. He agreed to help me build a Duo in the 2 day Edensaw Boatbuilding Challenge, which is part of the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival in September.
We used okoume plywood, clear douglas fir timber and epoxy, so the Duo is as good as it can be, despite the two day build time. However although it is epoxy coated inside and out it is not faired and painted. It is the standard rowing version. However it is possible to fit a sailing rig and even to make it a nesting boat.
I know it is a fantastic boat. We used 6 different woods, sapele gunwales, maple rowlock blocks, cedar stem, clear sitka spruce framing and dark wood for trim details. However I already have a Duo!
So I am selling the one we built. It is available now for USD1200
I feel that is a very good deal, especially if you compare it to similar 10ft rowing boats sold as kits, whereas the Duo will be structurally complete.
So if you ares interested in buying it, please contact me.
Straycat 1, is a 37 foot custom Flica built for cruising with strip cedar hulls and epoxy. She was built over a 15 year period in Atlantic Canada and was launched in 2005. Straycat 1 is very well equipped for cruising. We sailed south from northern New Brunswick July 2013. We have spent our winter in the Florida Keys and the Bahamas. We are presently sailing North back to the Chesapeake Bay.
Straycat 1 has a full enclosure for the cooler days and also a custom stainless arch with a davit for the dinghy and a 300 watt solar panel. The sail plan is larger than a standard Flica and a bit smaller than a Banshee.
The boat is equipped with all the necessary navigation equipment that is needed to make her easy to sail and to be comfortable while living aboard. The interior is custom with mahogany trim. All of the Flicas were designed to have a berth in the aft port hull however this Flica has a large shower and a head.
A complete list of equipment and a detailed description of the boat are available along with a recent survey. We would possibly consider delivering the boat anywhere in the great lakes or on the east coast.

Strider 24 in Wales SOLD from this advert
‘Torri Tonnau’ Torri Tonnau (Welsh for Cutting Waves) was built by the owner over a 4 year period. She was built to Richard Woods plans and specifications. She was finally surveyed and launched in July 1991.
TT has brought me many happy hours sailing, with trips across the Irish Sea to Isle of Man, Ireland and Southern Scotland. A couple of years ago a cuddy was built and bolted to the deck so it can be removed if it is not needed. Again this was built to Richard’s specifications. It has been great when heaving to for a sheltered meal or non-claustrophobic sleeping.
TT is presently moored at Rhyl in North Wales. She is modestly equipped as the concept was more of a camping style boat mostly used for daysailing. The port hull has single bunks fore and aft, both with foam mattresses. The starboard hull has a porta potti forward and hangers for life jackets etc. At the stern is space for storage boxes to keep cooking equipment, food etc. In the middle of the starboard hull is a demountable table suitable for navigating or cooking.
The central cuddy is large enough to sleep 2 and has most of the foam seating to cover that area. It is very comfortable and I wish I’d built it years ago. There is also a battery box and a VHF radio. There are 2 anchors in forward lockers. The standing rigging was all renewed in 2011.
She has a 5hp Tohatsu long shaft new in 2008 and in very good condition. There is an adequate amount rope and fenders for cruising. Torri Tonnau is in good condition but as with all wooden boats she requires some painting. There is a demountable trailer that can be used for launching or recovering the boat for winter storage.
I am selling her because I am not using her very much now and it is such a waste of a lovely sailing boat. She has been sailed this season and is ready to sail away. Price is £3900 but for a quick sale offers would be considered, especially if it meant a saving of winter storage.
