The Silence Dogood is a rare 1915 Crosby catboat in good condition for her age. She underwent extensive repairs in 2006 and shortly thereafter was used as a touring/day sail vessel until 2012 when we purchased it and transported it to New Iberia, Louisiana. ________________________________________ Fuel: Diesel Hull Material: Wood - White Oak Beam:10 ft. Draft Board/Drive Up: 3 ft. board up and 6 ft. board down. Engine Make: Westerbeke Length Overall: 25 ft. The Silence Dogood is a classic wooden sailing and lobster fishing vessel with 25 feet of space overall and is slightly over 10 feet wide and draws 3ft board up and 6ft. board down. She is classically gaffed rigged, wooden from bow to stern, and fitted with many traditional features. Also included in this sale is the sail. The Silence Dogood was built by the Crosby Boatyard in Osterville, MA. In 1915. The Crosby Boatyard was established in 1850 in Osterville, Massachusetts and was the first to build a catboat designed for New England waters. The Silence Dogood was rescued from freshwater in New York State and was used as a commercial sailing vessel in Maine (see 1st and last photos). We purchased it in March 2012 from Maine and had it transported to New Iberia, Louisiana where it has remained. We re-caulked, re-painted the hull and upgraded the Westerbeke engine in 2012 shortly after purchasing it. It was used as a recreational vessel in the bayous of Louisiana since 2012. In 2005/2006 overall work on the Silence Dogood included new mast partners, deck beams and foredeck, fully re-fastened under the waterline with silicon-bronze fasteners, half floors around centerboard trunk, 2 full floor timbers, housing around rudder post through hull, two 750gph bilge pumps (one port, one starboard), one 1500gph auxiliary pump, two house batteries, one starting battery; solar charging. 40hp Westerbeke diesel engine, starter, alternator, and fresh water pump (all Westerbeke products). Original Edson steering gear, mahogany wheel. Photo 7 shows the mast and boom. Photo 2 was taken at the dock in 2012/2013 and Photo 11 was taken when the hull was repaired. The catboat is in good condition. It has leaks in the hull which need to be repaired but has otherwise been maintained. Please ask any questions that you may have. This is a local pick up only. Sale price does not include transportation of vessel to buyer's location. This listing price is for the sale of the catboat only.
