Look who finally made it to Maine! Travis #trevor and Hindu crew Grant made it up the Saint George River and to the dock at 3am on a rainy Wednesday morning.

With a new build and a rebuild under his belt, Dutch sailmaker Marten-Jan Giesing was well and truly bitten by the boatbuilding bug.



Looking for a daysailer with sleeping accommodation for family dinghy cruising and raid sailing, he settled on building a Chebacco boat – a Phil Bolger camp cruiser design with something of a cult following amongst amateur boatbuilders (including our very own editor).

In our new issue, Marten-Jan’s friend and fellow sailmaker Frank van Zoest tells us how it was done. W149 (September/October 2021) is out now. For stockists and subscriptions follow the link in our bio.

Heading for Tree Island… what a trip! Good cruising alongside Eric in his Chebacco, Salish Sea sailing at it’s finest.

love the guys that designed, built, and maintained this boat!

We keep finding photos & info about the first incarnation of the boat.

Bernie, who is no longer with us, actually didn’t complete the boat before he sold it. More on that later. Here’s some of what we assume to be her first floats. ❤️🚤 #philbolger #bolgerboats

We thought you might like to know a bit more about the team behind Water Craft… First up, it’s our editor, publisher and sole prop, Pete Greenfield.

.
After a decade of impecunious freelancing for boating magazines and business, including the interminable saga (his words!) of building a ferrocement version of Slocum’s SPRAY in Practical Boat Owner, in 1987 Pete became founding editor of Classic Boat. In 1992, with relocation from Cornwall in prospect, he resigned to set up The Boatman, which was bought out from its backers and closed five years later. With the support of readers and contributors, in 1997 Pete set up Water Craft as a totally independent, international bi-monthly magazine about boat craftsmanship; over twenty years on, with readers in 36 countries, it still is.
.
When not bringing the latest issue of Water Craft to life from the magazine’s headquarters in the small Cornish village of Gweek, you’ll most likely find Pete working in his garden. Not weeding, but dawdling through a backyard build of his Phil Bolger 20’ (6m) Chebacco Boat.

New paint and parts going in! #philbolger #totalpaint #westmarine

Well the sealing is installed! Its looking sooo good! I cant believe I chose slotted screws...

All for tradition sake. I've now refinished 56 sealing boards, tightened 200+ screws, and screamed dozens of obscenities.

#woodenboat #woodenboats #sealing #brightwork #boatinterior #fawcettsmarine #sailboat #interior #philbolger #moccasin

The first of many projects. Gonna be sanding these sealing planks to wood then varnishing for a really sexy finish.

Probably only gonna go a little crazy doing so. #brightwork #varnish #woodenboat #sailboat #philbolger #moccasin #schoonervarnish #sandmylifeaway #woodworking #varnishallday #varnishallnight

Check out the inside! Moccasin has looks for days... So much work though- need to build a galley!

This may be one of the happiest days of my life. I've been researching the hell out of Moccasin and cant wait to show you the process of putting her back together.

#woodenboat #philbolger #moccasin #sailboat #boatrepair #rebuild

Just look at that sexy stem... This girl really has it all... You will be beautiful again.

More pictures to come #woodenboat #moccasin #philbolger #sailboat #stem #allwoodallgood

Got a closer look at that beauty across the creek...

Looks like Im gonna be the custodian of a wooden boat! I intruduce you to Moccasin. She is a Phil Bolger design and the only one around. Shes 49' overall and carries a 2' draft. I cant wait to rebuild this beauty and get her sailing. It shouldnt take long... #woodenboat #philbolger #moccasin #yawlcrazy #ketchyalater #insertboatpunhere #thisismylifenow #ithinkiminlove #sailboat

Ooooooh! WHO ARE YOU???? I cant help but check out your stern! Look at that damn seahorse!

Beautiful! Not to mention, that wood! #woodenboat #Philbolger #moccasin #sailboat #woodwork #annapolis #travel #sexywood #boatporn #seahorse

“Cynthia J” by #philbolger for @smallcraftadvisormag

In our upcoming May/June issue, Susanne Altenburger - the late Phil Bolger’s design partner and wife - celebrates his 23’ (7m) Seabird ’86, built by a father and son in Santiago, Chile.

Designed for a part-time boatbuilder who has to work in short stints and “who wants a boat, not a carpentry challenge”, last year they cruised the Patagonian Fjords as far as the San Rafael Glacier.

We’re enormously proud of being a truly international magazine, with readers and articles from all over the world.

Coming soon, our next issue brings you stories of boatbuilding and adventures from three continents; from a father-and-son Phil Bolger backyard build in Chile to a pocket yacht in Tasmania and home to a traditional lugger here in Cornwall.

My favorite gifts this year were all boat boat boat.

These are blueprints of her printed by metal, with the designer Phil Bolger’s signature added from a hand-written letter in our records. Second and third are pics of the mini ornament made by my mother-in-law. ♥️🎄🎽 #bolgerboats #philbolger #woodenboat #woodenornament

Her new owner picks her up Monday. But if this was my last sail on Polliwog, it won’t be forgotten.

Really nice time in the waterway and creeks around Bulls Island.

So much work on this sweet little boat. All done except for some rigging improvements.

A couple sails before she goes up for sale. Bittersweet...

First snowfall of the season. I'm so lucky to have this as my front yard!
