    16" LENGTH OVERALL TWO MASTED SCHOONER

    From the yacht America to the famous fisherman Bluenose, no other rig more universally represents our maritime heritage than the two masted schooner. A favorite among fishermen, traders and yachtsmen alike, schooners have long enjoyed a reputation for seaworthiness and speed. Now you too can experience the ways of a schooner first hand with Coaster.
    With a few household tools and clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions and plans, Coaster can be ready to launch in hours not days. And sail? She can! Given enough sea room the well balanced little hooker will sail herself for hours on end. If you're not able to chase her with a row boat or canoe tie a light fishing line around her bowsprit and sail her from the beach.
