For sale: Chestnut Sailing Canoe.
Original build. Circa 1959.
Sailing Canoe, 17', cedar/canvas (prospector
type) . Was re-canvased and hull is in good
condition. Comes with two dagger boards (port
and starboard), rudder with extension, two
masts, sail (not original), outriggers,
surf/wave guard extension (for sailing in
rougher water), sponsons (I have removed them
because I sail with outriggers), sailing
hardware and lines.
This boat goes very fast in a moderate wind. Not
for sailing in heavy wind. Has lateen type
rigging and is easy to sail. Would be an
excellent boat for longer adventures as you sit
back and enjoy the view as the world streams by.
Can be sailed solo. Will accommodate another
adult or two kids when rigged.
