Sorry for the grainy image as it's an iPhone enlargement. Not bad considering I shot it with my phone at 25 mph on my weekend trip to Port Townsend.

I couldn't PM the picture to Klee Wyck as the forum does not support that capability so posted it here for him to find. He told me he has no sailboat but found it ironic such a unique name to be duplicated.

Thanks Craig, I was quite curious to get a look at her. I will have to try to do some research which may include a run to Port Townsend. We purchased our Klee Wyck with the name already on her but quite surprised to hear of another.
Pretty cool and would love to hear the story of this sailing vessel.

Some sort of self-steering gear?

The farther he puts the rudder, the more leverage it has on the boat...

The more "More Leverage" is primarily placed on the arm holding the rudder back and away - from transom.

For inboard direct drive boats the prop wash directed in an angle via the rudder being turned close to the prop is a real motivator (water jet stream) for turning the boat. That's why the rudder looses much of its steering capability when boat is in reverse or even at low idle when in forward; i.e. when prop wash is increased rudder works best.

Having rudder way back away from transom (in other words, nearly completely away from prop wash) limits the rudder's steering capabilities.

Tad Roberts designed 22' trailerable aluminum Timbercoast Trawler, with paravanes. Great boat for a retired single guy who doesn't need a pampering, coddling, ostentatious boating experience;

Love that little boat. Is it priced a bit high for most wanting that size boat maybe?

Greetings,
Mr. L. "Not much range, I'm thinkin'." It's got sails. The wind is free...blah, blah, blah... I tend to agree with the range assessment.

Depends on what one thinks 'Range' of the available fuel and fuel burn. Assume .5 gallon per hour and reserve of a gallon , then 15 gallons equates to 150 miles. Pretty much sure that fuel availability within a 150 mile radius of this crafts operating area exist.

We have a single cyl. 6 hp. Yanmar in our 18 foot Poulsbo Skiff with a 7 gallon fuel tank. We burn a quart an hour at 5.5 knot average running at 900 RPM.
That gives us a 20 mile radius per gallon, or 120 mile radius with a gallon reserve. One day, I would like to venture into such a venture!

At 5 knots I'm guessing over 20MPG (.25 GPH). Didn't see a draft listed. On the trailer it looks to be less than 30". I hear the skinny water calling.
