For Sale

For Sale -- Vintage 36R

The Duke City MYC, is selling a W.J. Daniels “Midge” 36R which was given to the club by the estate of a deceased member. This boat was featured in Daniels and Tucker’s 1951 “little book” and looks like it was built not much later.

 The hull is carved with a nice lined deck as shown. No cracks or splits are visible.  There is a double tapered mast and well-made cloth sails with sewn reinforcements. Somebody who didn’t know what they were doing tried to put it in sailing shape; no real damage, but it needs restoration. The rudder shaft is loose in its tube but an endoscope shot shows the tube looks OK. To aid in restoration the seller includes a slightly better Braine quadrant, Fisher gooseneck, turnbuckles, and jib horse.

The price is $200 plus shipping from Albuquerque (perhaps another $150).  The seller’s preferred method of payment would be $400 via PayPal with the seller refunding the overage once actual shipping costs were known.  The seller’s main goal is to get this sweet little boat back on the water.
