2010 Cold Molded Baybird Sloop


Cold Molded Baybird Starling is hull #1. A cold molded Baybird built by Pleasant Bay Boat and Spar Company in 2010. The lines were taken off one of the last of the original wooden Baybirds and redrawn, capturing the essence of the original Starling Burgess design. Featured in WoodenBoat Publications 2010 Small Boat Magazine. She also won “Best Professionally Built Sailboat” at the 2010 WoodenBoat Show in Mystic, CT. Starling was built to the highest standards, cold molded with cedar strips overlaid with two layers of 1/8″ Spanish cedar cross diagonally set in West System epoxy, then sheathed inside and out with Dynel fabric. This building process results in a strong but easily maintained hull with almost all the attributes of a wooden boat. The seats are slatted cedar, unfinished. The trim is mahogany finished in Cetol, with unfinished teak rails. The rig hollow fir mast and gaff with a solid fir boom. Standing rigging is made up of Amsteel synthetic line and Colligo fittings, replacing the traditional stainless steel wire and turnbuckle arrangement with a more modern technology.
