Vashon 23

Hello just signed up. I have searched all avail last threads on here and thought I would post in welcome mat. I am the looking for a Vashon pocket 23. I have been looking a few years and found one for 17k with low hours yanmar. . Just thought maybe this enlightened community might have a few words or even any leads on the little boats. And wether or not 17k is a good price for a fairly fit/equipped Vashon on a trailer.Thank you

There are a couple of those in Homer I do believe, but that info would be to contact the owners about them as I am sure they are not for sale. I wave at them as we pass each other :-)

I see them well out into the Fjords and in Prince William Sound, so there is not doubt as to their ability.

I have not seen one there yet I live in nicklechik have to look around. I found one local for 17k really debating it and so few made for comparison. with the weighted keel it looks like honey I shrunk the boat but looking around that price the other available builds look like overgrown skiffs. Thanks for the reply

There is a Bristol Bay boat that also looks a lot like the Vashon, I see him poking in and out of Tutka Bay. I see 2-4 of those little double enders but it's really hard to tell them from one another. I spent one night anchored in Midnight Cove with one, and one night in Fox Farm Bay with a different one. They get around!

Don't know if this one is still for sale, but might be worth checking.

There is one in Soldotna on K-Beach road. It has been for sale for a couple of years. I am not sure if it is still for sale but the sign was still on it last fall.

That is the one I was thinking of. Been for sale for a while so the price might be soft but I have no idea.

Are you local to this area? Be interesting to take a closer look at the boat when the virus allows.

Why not consider a McGregor, not a true sailboat but with a decent outboard, they can go like stink, and when you want to go slower, put the sail up. The are trailerable.

Here is a 26 MacGregor for sale in New York, just providing an example, I know you are in Alaska. This boat is 2001, and is going for $12,000.

I hope to take it up the road to lake iliamna to capture the famed monster of lake iliamna. After that we are heading to portloch to capture big foot so the McGregor won’t pack enough to carry the monsters back to homer or Pedro bay.

Spent lots of time in Chatham, glassing the beaches for Bigfoot is always a passing time there. Used to see a lot of bears, but it's grown up where logged over the last 35 years so now you only see them above timberline.

No luck on Bigfoot yet though...
