Thanks for the follow-up, Closecall; and I really appreciate the scan and information. Most interesting! I would love to get my hands on the manuals and brochures! Sorry to hear it didn't work out but I hope you are able to eventually find one in decent shape.

More Vashon Pocket Troller or should I say Vashon Motorsailer.
Word is one was built in the configuration.
Once again pardon the orientation, hurts my neck too.

Wow! This is a version that this Vashon fan didn't know existed. I knew there were essentially two versions of the troller but was not aware of the motorsailer--most interesting. A 100 gallon tank would provide excellent range. The original aluminum diesel tank installed in the bow was removed on mine and the PO added a much smaller ~20 gallon poly tank midship--ample range for how I use Sherpa.

Thanks for reposting/orienting the pics, CPseudonym.

Larry,
Do you suppose the PO moved the tank for better CG?

We had a 25gal tank on our Albin. Had no trouble on our trip to Juneau and back. And I think we burned 3 quarts an hour. More for sure than your Vashon.

That is a good question. I believe it was more for convenience. The two tanks actually co-existed for a while. The aluminum was leaking and simply left in the forward compartment. The new tank was installed in a storage compartment midship that has limited space and could not accomodate a larger tank. It wasn't until much later that the old aluminum tank was removed. It was not an easy job from what I understand because the tank had to be cut out. I am still, to this day, cleaning slight diesel residue from the forward compartment where the tank resided.

My burn rate is a little less than your Albin. I tend to average around 1/2 gallon per hour at approximately 5.5 knots. I frequently make the trip from south St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs (130 miles or so round trip) with plenty of fuel to spare. A conservative estimate might be 200 miles for my range--plenty for me.

Yes, welcome fellow Vashon owner. Please post some pics! Glad to know there is someone else out there that owns and appreciates one of these fine little trawlers!

I'll take some pictures and post soon, I recently purchased the vashon and in the process of re powering her, she's a great boat and in good condition. Can't wait to get her in the water

Farallon,


I assume this is your Vashon, Puffin? I found these pics online.

Vashon for sale on Craigslist

This is an older thread and Farralon27 hasn't been here in a few months but believe I found pictures of his Vashon tonight. If this is the right "Puffin" she appears to be for sale at $25,000 on Sacramento Craigslist.

Interesting. Thanks for sharing CPseudonym. The engine appears to be a Westerbeke, so it may indeed be his. Hopefully, it will fine a good home--not many around. My wife and I are so pleased with ours.

Thanks for posting the pictures for me, I really hate to sell her but I have to many projects and no time to use the boat. Do you think my asking price is in the ballpark. Thanks again

I'd be interested in taking a look at your boat. I'll be busy until the last week of June and I can't ask you to hold her but if it's still for sale then I'll plan a trip down your way. I'm in the process of retiring...or trying to...from running tugs and I've been looking for a pocket trawler. Thanks.
