Whitehall 17', Gaff Rig Sloop, 1980
Traditional hull design, wine glass transom, oars for rowing, trailer and new running rigging
The Whitehall originated in the 1820s around the New York waterfront, used by runners who would row out to incoming deepwater vessels to accost the local crews, pitching the local brothels, ship chandlers and the like.
Fiberglass hull, not lapstrake.
Set up for rowing too. No sliding seat. Oars are brand new.
Boat in great shape with new running rigging, new oars.
The boat has teak rails, a swing center board, anchor
I do not know the brand name.
The Hull number is BJP/0011/10/80W1.
I USED THIS NUMBER TO RESEARCH THROUGH THE COAST GUARD. WHAT I FOUND WAS THAT THE COMPANY THAT MADE THE BOAT IS OUT OF BUSINESS.
ALUMINUM SPARS. NEW RUNNING RIGGING STAINLESS STANDING RIGGING IS VERY GOOD. PEAK AND THROAT HALYARD ADJUSTMENT IS NECESSARY TO GET PROPER SAIL SHAPE BUT ONCE YOU FIGURE THAT OUT, IT SAILS VERY WELL. HULL MOVES THROUGH THE WATER VERY NICELY DUE ITS SWEET HULL LINES. (that is what the Whitehall design is...sweet lines)
Trailer is in very good condition. Tires on it are like new and the spares (2)are new.
Sold my boat. Thanks
