Mini Mocha is a high-performance sport boat meant to be accessible to all sailors—including those with severe physical impairments. The canting keel provides good stability in the vertical position, and exceptional stability when swung to windward. Mini Mocha’s hull form is based on high-performance ocean racers. Because of her wide beam at the transom, she is steered by twin rudders. The generous sail plan includes a 195-sq-ft asymmetrical spinnaker. The bowsprit swings aft when not in use.



sailing skiff dory

This A.R. True 14 foot LOA sailing skiff/dory was rescued from decades forgotten in a barn in 2010 and spent the next four years being stripped, refastened, and recaulked. The lower half of the transom was also replaced. Both of the cotton sails and the mast and boom are original. Seabiscuit (named, tongue-in-cheek, after the racehorse who also had an inauspicious start) now sails on the lakes of southern New Hampshire. Its owner, Mike Wozmak, can be contacted at mwozmak@gmail.com if you have any information about the date or lineage of this boat.

Launching the CHELSEA

The “CHELSEA” was purchased by me in 1985 at a marina in Somers Point, NJ after coming back from a trip to Jamaica and and being introduced to sailing on a Sunfish. I took sailing lessons and purchased the boat out of the yard, that same summer.

www.gp14thechelsea.com/ to visit the site for more pictures and information about the past 25 years sailing and rebuilding the CHELSEA.

I refurbished the wood boat as a project the first winter of 1986 and then had the boat refitted by John Wright boats Conshohocken, PA in 1995.

This dory style sailboat was built in a small wood shop in my yard. It took ten months to build and would never have happened had it not been for the folks at Chesapeake Light Craft and their assistance.
