a project worth checking out…

Way back when I was living on a peniche just outside of Paris, I seriously considered building George Buehler’s Hager design. I still think it would have been a great boat to cruise with.

With a 28-foot LOD it’s a small boat of the Pardey mindset but shippy as all hell and more than able to take you just about anywhere you’d care to go..

As it happens, there’s a project Hager for sale up in Port Townsend that looks doable and selling for a fraction of the materials invested. What pictures are available on Craigslist makes me think that someone with the right motivation could finish it up in a timely manner without dumping a ton of money.

Full plans are included in George’s “Buehler’s Backyard Boatbuilding”  (last century edition) which is all the information anyone would need to build or finish the boat.

Just sayin’
