Good Golly Miss Molly! New boat!
Well, due to circumstances nearly out of my control I've come into possession of this odd duck. 'Tis a 32 foot Seawind pilot house cutter ketch. Oy! What a mouthful! Cutter ketch means two headsails in front, a main sail and a small mizzen sail on a tiny mast in back. I'm not really a fan of the pilot house (the thing with the big square windows) and I'm contemplating removing it. Skooching by it to get to the foredeck in a hurry seems likely to result in unnecessary dampness. That is to say an unforseen swim. It depends how much work it is. My basic plan is to sell it as soon as possible. Having two yachts to feed and care for is an undesirable state of affairs.
