V 193 Canvasback (ex Patience)



Canvasback has emerged from the forests and mountains of Juneau.  Isn’t that in Alaska!  Her beautiful sails were built by the legendary sailmaker, Carol Hasse who recently retired after running her sail loft in Port Townsend for forty years.


Canvasback in her Pacific northwest home.

Comfortable saloon with proper, keel stepped mast!


Isn’t this the finest seagoing stove you ever saw!  A genuine Shipmate Skippy.

Canvasback is named after one of the more celebrated local duck species…….not a common name in sailing circles.
