These are very very good boats and they are not uncommon here in Puget Sound. I know of an excellent surveyor that knows wood boats intimately and the Monks especially. Lynn Reister. She was featured in PMM some time ago.

These are wonderful boats but I speak of the design and the condition is very independent of the design. Many to most on this forum are on the "nix on wood boats" wagon simply because others say so. I would buy a well surveyed wood boat more readily and comfortably than a typical FG boat but cabin and deck maintenance definitely is more intensive. Most people in our culture think changing oil is an unacceptable burden and for scope consider that when I was a young man everybody did wood boat maintenance and for the most part got along well w it.

If moorage was cheaper I'd probably sell my Willard and buy this boat. It looks like the build standards were as high as the design standards in this example.

That would be a deal if it surveys well. Nice video. One of my dream boats at 1:37, a Hans Christian 44 pilothouse! Frances Bay, Pendrell Sound and Heriot Bay are in my backyard.

Ed Monk Sr. and Jr. design real nice boats! That is a nice boat. Notice similarity to my avatar... Monks were the leading designers for nearly all Tollycraft. Wood or fiberglass!
