"Kria" is a treasure to behold. Although built in 1939-40, she has been essentially built again (a step above rebuilt), from her keel, up in 1973. ...and this time to last. From her very smooth topsides to her gleamiing decks, it is clear she has been masterfully redone. The master Shipwright who rebuilt her added simple items to keep her systems in excellent state. The narrative will take a few days to finish and no doubt some adjustments so stay tuned or give a call if you would like to see her. A walk aboard this boat reveals she has been redone to stand through heavy weather and many years of enjoyment to come.
Give ART a call -
Originally built in Nova Scotia by William Heisler, she comes with a great deal of documented history, right down to a letter by the builder. Her original rig consists of a clear spruce main mast, marconi rigged with bronze fittings, and foremast a traditional gaff rig with galv. fittings. She is proportioned identically to the famed 80 foot schooners and appears to be such from far away. She needs no "projects" to be completed and has some nice updated features such as LectraSan head, special fresh water Y for engine flush, a pull-out vanity that resides over the head. Her accomadations include 2 salon settees that convert to a double, and a conventional V-berth in the forepeak. Her Nav station faces aft. She is spacious on deck with easy ,oving room fore to aft. She is fastened with copper rivet nails. Her decks are completely redone with Awlgrip over fiberglass. So much more to be told.
