George Bueller "JACK" Steel Cutter

USCG document

Hull built in 1997, launched in 2005

Duetz 301 16 HP diesel

Herth reduction gear (2:1 I think)

extra 3 bladed prop

13 gallon fuel tank

Dry exhaust with muffler

"dripless" shaft packing (it leaks when the shaft is turning, ha!)

Draft 4’6”

Breadth 9’6”

Displacement 13,500

37ft LOA

30 feet on deck

Lead ballast encased in steel box in the keel

Four sails:

  • MAIN,
  • Stays'l,
  • JIB,
  • drifter.
  • All sails are in excellent shape.
  • The drifter is still crisp. I think I was the first to ever raise it.

    Two Barrient two speed sheet winches aft. Sails raise with blocks not winches. It's an odd arrangement but everyone who sailed with me liked it better than halyard winches.

    Running rigging is a little tired.


  • FULL size bunk fwd with storage lockers on each side
  • Settee to starboard, storage beside and under
  • Huge storage area under fwd bunk Large chain locker in front of fwd bunk

    Hand pump at sink

  • 60 gallons fresh water in three tanks, switchable port and starboard
  • Sink drains overboard or to sump pump under cabin floor

    Manual Jabsco head to starboard, drains to 6 gallon holding tank with mascerator pump out.

    Mascerator pump is brand new (that's right, I already did it for your).

    The old pump was just stuck and is now included as a spare

    Taylors two burner stove to Port

    Taylors cabin heater to port (both kerosene)

    2 gallon pressure tank under counter

    7 bronze ports, three P/S pairs and one facing fwd. All open

    Two hatches overhead stand open on springs.

    Main hatch has similar hatch arrangement (no slide to leak in)

    Wash boards, like everything on this boat, are overkill - 1 1/2 in thick dimentional lumber (maybe teak, but not sure)


  • A 4w solar panel charges two deep cycle batteries
  • VHF radio and antenna
  • Cabin lighting
  • Marine stereo/cd/mp3 player
  • Simrad TP32 Tiller Pilot


  • Starboard anchor is 45# plow on 350 ft of 3/8 in chain (definitely something you can sleep on)
  • Port anchor is 35# CQR on 3/8 in chain and rope, not sure how much. I've only used the starboard anchor
  • ABI double acting windlass lifts both anchors. It’s a workhorse I was always impressed with.

    Lifelines and standing rig are all in good shape.

    The paint is tired. The previous owner painted with what I call "pretty" paint from the best know "glitter" marine store and it wasn’t meant for a steel boat.

    Add in that I welded on the winch tables and a bracket for the tillerpilot and the boat needs some painting.

    I am captain on a steel cargo vessel (at work) and when I saw this boat I knew it was in great shape. I have a UT (thickness) meter you can borrow to check it out. The boat is very solid and well built. I was told the builder was a retired welder and it looks like it. Everything is where it belongs on the boat. Steel is much easier to maintain than folks think. Keep it painted and will live a long hearty life.

    Lead ballast encased in steel box in the keel

    Original paint job was epoxy after sandblasting. This paint is still completely intact.

    Hull is insulated and paneled.

    The boat is in the water and ready to go sailing. Add provisions and off ya go.

    The boat is in Hernando Beach, FL. Will consider offers of trade.
