Chance Along

by Kirby Salisbury
(Punta Gorda, Toledo)

“Chance Along” is a 33 ft. Culler-designed wooden schooner, owner built, launched 1988 and lived aboard.

Built from Caribbean pine over steam bent cabbage bark frames.

Then the cradle moved by hand winch over pipe rollers 'til she floated.

She has a shapely hull leaving little wake.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
