George Buehler 30, 1988

  • s/v tzegunka is now at a reduced fee of $23,750. due to not maintaining last few years, as we lived on it, and worked our nonprofit, got busy!
  • We are fundraising for our nonprofit, and if gain what needs through Grants/Donations, we will give to a wooden boat school. Please share!
  • Needs sanding and painting in and out, a few repairs and maintenance. It is a strong little ship if make it yours!
  • Documentation 911528. a coastal cruiser, 30 ft LOD George Buehler - grizzly bear design sailboat with boomkin bowsprit 38' LOA. Double ender full keel cutter.
  • Nice home + coastal cruiser;
  • We did scrape the entire deck and thin coat so easy sanding! If buy you can continue to cherry out to your liking. It will be sold `As-Is.
  • Needs a depth sounder, this one partially works + needs an antenna for an older model GPS if kept, that you may want to replace if want to add more bells + whistles. There is also a small hand help GPS. As far as other electronics like radar, chart plotters, you may want to choose for your self, for we do not use them. Sails are in good shape, main a little stretched but good + 2nd staysail fairly new, used a few times.
  • Windows are dull on one side of boat w/bronze + opens + could be replaced, other side just glass does not open. The boat is well worth your effort to make it yours.
  • House over entrance could be redone with board similar to hull if wanted to retain tradition. We did with plywood, epoxy + paint and I would replace it due to lamination. It was nice for wind + sun and we needed it for a quick trip to Mexico from Seattle.
  • Simple design but choice of wood is nice with traditional shape. Wood is from locally grown woods found in central to the southern coast of Oregon. Built-in Coos Bay, Or. Launched in 1988. Wood includes Port Orford cedar mostly, Douglas fir, Pacific yew, Yellow cedar, White oak. Topsides decking are cotton caulked.
  • Decking laid Douglas fir old growth with galvanized steel wood screw fastenings. Ceiling 1/2" thick yellow cedar fastened down with steel nails. Concrete keel encased in case hardened steel with 1" diameter galvanized steel bolts.
  • Tractor tread steel pins inside extended seats, to have more weight for volume. Equal 1 1/2 ton of pig iron lead ingots. More weight was added to provide more stability for the aluminum mast which is 7 taller than the original wooden mast. Herringbone chime wood construction. Keel w/cement + wood shoe.
  • Original owner Elmer Atkins was a forest worker in Oregon who selected each board. Built it for 10 years died right after finished 1988.
  • 56" headroom in the cabin, v birth has a nice raised hatch, with wood vents or clear plastic. As well as back entry hatch. Does not have a head.
  • Aluminum, mfg Le Fiell mast is 7 taller than original wood that broke. Boom is solid douglas fir. rigged as a Bermuda Cutter. A. Lam, Hong King dacron 590 working sail plus new staysail. Standing rigging 1 x 19 stainless steel, NaviTec 316 turnbuckles, ss 1/4 x 1 1/2" chainplates. Ss backstays, Schaefer deck hardware. 3 Harken 8 halyard winches, 4 bronze Southcoast sheet winches.
  • The engine is a Westerbeke diesel, model M-40, 4 cylinders, 2 Racor filters. aprox 1900 hours. We do 4-5 knts conservatively but easily can do 7. The last owner pulled 8 logs + replaced the original smaller motor. Runs great. The only major negative of this boat is the location of the 30 gallon diesel stainless tank, which would be a major job to get it out if needed. When our fuel lines got clogged we think due to biocide breaking up pieces or perhaps Mexican fuel big seas churning the fuel or dirty fuel? We resolved by putting a line to the cockpit to switch if be in similar condition + unable to easily empty out tank. We do have 2 filters + now can also have the option to go directly into a 5-gallon jug of clean fuel in the cockpit. Which is great back up. We carry external jugs of fuel also. 12 + 19-gallon water tank, simple piping for faucet with a footswitch that we see can buy a $25. better version! And a manual pump.
  • Sleep; 40-inch bed to side in v birth, clothes cabinet + large shelf. A nice very large metal vent mushroom can be put on from top deck for v birth. In the second only other room as galley, beside the chain locker is another single seat for bunk + a small seat, which both have been extended from a normal size bench, to add the tractor tread steel pins as the weight for ballast, as mast went higher. Making seats comfortable, + extra wide. Also for passage can lay boards across both benches for a bunk that would block off v birth.
  • Bunk has an opening to chain locker with hydraulics needing to remove rust and tape, etc. for nice capstan 175 - 5/16 chain gal, 160 -3/4 polyester line for 33 lb Bruce anchor 100 nylon line 50 - 5/16 chain gal for 15 lb Danforth. Both anchors stay on deck. (Suggest put a floor button near Capistan vs talk to one in galley to turn it on!)
  • Wood burning small sardine cast iron stove. 2 ss sink (wood around sink needs repair, 2 burner force 10 propane stove, 1 burner good, another low.
  • Weather panels, cockpit top which slides to work main, made waterproof material, white.
  • Soft solar panels on the cabin roof of the house over entry hatch with a morning star Sunsaver-10 solar controller. 12 volt D.C. system 110 Volt AC.
  • 2 Bilge pumps on auto, which we are not taking any water on. As well we have a huge manual pump Edson diaphragm installed in the salon, if needed. Danforth Constellation compass. si-tex 850 VHF, GPS 120 Garmin. The boat is wired thru-out for connecting to dock electricity. We`ve used a little 12-volt cooler in past. Presently have a small refrigerator but on the seat and not suggested to ail with unless tie-down good? We just took temporarily. As well the lights on the boat, are all run on shore power when in the dock or solar when at sea. House + starter battery with a manual switch depending on usage.
  • To have it here in Charleston marina is very nice. You have to contact the harbormaster for permission/and try for yearly rates + if not available put self on list + ask for updated status to keep the boat at this marina as well it now is in a nice slip by commercial fishing boats friendly.
  • Call Charleston Marina; same w/haul-out at a shipyard near to work + more details.
  • Within 4 miles you can hike/fish of the cliffs, sail the ocean in one of the coasts nicer bars, or river clamming, crabbing in the bay or on the docks. Bastendorf beach around the corner, small beach great for walking dogs/enjoying the day, at the entrance of harbor, estuary for clamming + bay, fishing off docks + close by, small boating in the estuary, old-growth hiking, commercial fishing fleet, sports + more.
  • Laundromat/campground with cleaning stations for marine life.
  • Photos on sling were at haul out in Port Townsend yrs ago + we maintain cleaning bottom scraping. Other photos in water are within last year.
  • It is a strong little ship, does great in big seas with chine, herringbone + cement keel/wood shoe. Low + wet boat in heavy weather but even open cockpit good, good for coastal cruising. Also, the front hatch is a big slider so either build protected tracts so high seas doing get in the bunk or cover w/tarp, etc??
  • Few repairs needed on cabin rot and 1 splash board needs replaced or add wood?
  • A great sweet little boat as we've had it cherried out before and love it! Mli>Please do not ask me to return fees to a mover, as you may offer to add more to the original price for me to do that as some have, that is your responsibility!
  • Make it yours!
