23’ Crocker Stonehorse 1930s - Free Boat


She was a project boat for my father-in-law who had had two other wooden Crocker boats built for him during his long sailing career. This Stonehorse was a free boat and he took it on as a restoration project after his retirement from MMA. Due to failing health he was not able to complete his dream of a third Crocker to ply the waters of Frenchman's bay in his twilight years. She remains a sound boat, stored in a custom boat barn, with great potential for the right owner. The hull has been checked by a Hinckley employee and was found to be sound in his opinion. The boat has also been reviewed by a local wooden boat building instructor and found to be in good shape but too big of a project for his restoration class due to space limitations. The cockpit was partially removed. Some replanking has been done to the hull. There is a stove, toilet, sink, mast, boom, spars, and rudder but no sails. The boat stands will be included. Sam Crocker designed the Stone Horse 23' in 1931 in the tradition of the small working vessels that evolved along the New England coast during the days of sail. In 1968, Edey & Duff adapted it to fiberglass but retained both the performance and beauty of the original.
