Please if know of anyone in the area or outside the area that wants to come here, or even take it back home, we appreciate you helping us sell our 38`loa, 30` lod `Buehler Port Orford cedar sailboat reduced to $32,900. The US, due to not getting to sand/paint inside + out as normally do plus a few repairs. Same Dingy needs to be rebuilt, depending on usage?
But if you make it your own, it is a very strong boat w/small cosmetic needs.
This dingy was built from a take of another, customized for our boat. It needs serious repair;
Aprox; 10`4"`by 4`4", floatation was built in. We used 1/4' plywood w/dynell + epoxy, kevlar on bottom, aluminum floating oars. 4 oz dacron sail made by us, douglas fir pole mast, lugger rig. This nesting dingy was built to fit over our front raised hatch. It stacks within itself. Sail is in great shape, used a few times.
Documentation 911528. a coastal cruiser, 30 ft LOD George Buehler - grizzly bear design sailboat with boomkin bowsprit = 38 ft LOA. Double ender full keel cutter.
Entire boat painted white with once oiled wood, that is pine we oil each year, but now we've let it darken which I like, but prior did with Tonkin. Teal bottom paint is worn and we have bought a gallon of black yet to paint, blue sail covers with white sails. Needs a paint job inside/bottom, top + hull we are doing now + need to finish cosmetics.
Make it your own! It will be great if cherry out.
Nice home + coastal cruiser or just stay local +enjoy easy ocean access, river, estuary... Can`t beat a home this cheap in such a nice setting as Charleston, perhaps close to family/SWOCC community college/workplace maybe on a fishing boat, or take back to your home, your choice is unlimited...
Simple design but the choice of wood is nice with the traditional shape. wood is from locally grown woods found in central to the southern coast of Oregon. Built-in Coos Bay, Or. Launched in 1988. wood includes port orford cedar mostly, Douglas fir, pacific yew, yellow cedar, white oak. Topsides decking are cotton caulked.
Decking laid Douglas fir old growth with galvanized steel wood screw fastenings. Ceiling 1/2" thick yellow cedar fastened down with steel nails. Concrete keel encased in case hardened steel with 1" diameter galvanized steel bolts.
Tractor tread steel pins inside extended seats, to have more weight for volume. Equal 1 1/2 ton of pig iron lead ingots. more weight was added to provide more stability for the aluminum mast which is 7 taller than the original wooden mast. Herringbone chime construction.
The original owner was a forest worker in Oregon selected each board. Built it for 10 years died right before finished 1988. 56" headroom in the cabin, v birth has a nice raised hatch, with wood vents or clear plastic. as well back entry hatch. does not have a head.

Lam, Hong King dacron 590 working sail plus new stay sail. standing rigging 1 x 19 stainless steel, NaviTec 316 turnbuckles, ss 1/4 x 1 1/2" chain plates. Ss backstays, Schaefer deck hardware. 3 Harken 8 halyard winches, 4 bronze Southcoast sheet winches. The engine is a Westerbeke diesel, model M-40, 4 cylinders, 2 Racor filters. Approx 1790 hours. We do 4-5 knots conservatively but easily can do 7. The last owner pulled 8 logs + replaced the original smaller motor. runs great.
Only major negative of this boat is the location of the 30 gallon diesel stainless tank, which would be a major job to get it out if needed. When our fuel lines got clogged we think due to bio-cide breaking up pieces or perhaps Mexican fuel big seas churning the fuel. We resolved by putting a line to the cockpit to switch if be a similar condition, direct into 5-gallon jug of clean fuel, which is a great back up. We carry external jugs of fuel.
12 + 19-gallon water tank, simple piping for a faucet with a foot switch manual pump.

Haul out near to pull out the boat to work on it, contact Port of Charleston for details.
If want to stay + get a yearly rate that includes electricity, must go on a waitlist, they stopped the ability to pass it on with the sale of a boat.
Photos on sling was at haul out in Port Townsend awhile ago. Other photos in water are within last year.
It is a strong little ship, does great in big seas with chine, herringbone + cement keel. Low + wet boat though, good for coastal cruising. If I was to keep it I would haul out + paint bottom/inside, sand smooth for cosmetics, finishing around sink + I would add some trim around bed if I was to keep it.
Needs a depth sounder, this one partially works + an antenna for an older model GPS, that you may want to replace if want to add more bells + whistles. There is also a small hand help GPS. As far as other electronics like radar, chart plotters, you may want to choose for your self, for we do not use them. sails are in good shape, main a little stretched but good + 2nd staysail fairly new, used a few times. The mast is aluminum;
The mast is 7 ft taller aluminum, then original wood (reaches nicely in light wind being taller).
Windows are dull + could be replaced if want to cherry out boat for your liking. The boat is well worth your effort to make it yours.
