INTRODUCTION

Boats have always fascinated me and now that I am retired, I enjoy working on small boats and occasionally sailing them. I describe boats I have owned or still have on this site, some 4 sale and others 2 sail.

I recently added seven pages about the historical voyage of Captain Marvin Creamer's Globe Star. Creamer is the only person in recorded history to have sailed around the globe without the help of navigational instruments! I have a special interest in Creamer's achievement partly because Marvin worked two years as a carpenter for my grandfather and was a close friend of my father's cousin, Dr. Ralph VanMeter, after whom I was named.

BOATS 4 SALE

I have several boats for sale in good condition and several other projects are in the works!

If you are interested in a boat or would like to sell a small sailboat on this site (free!), call me at (856) 694-5684 or send an email to harveyralph@gmail.com I am always looking for small trailers and sailboats in any condition. If it is not restorable, I can use the parts.

BOATS 2 SAIL

I love to sail and can tell some interesting stories about my experiences with these boats. I will never get bored sailing, not even in doldrums. I don't venture that far from shore and the boats I sail can be rowed or paddled if necessary!

CANOES

The Radisson and Old Town canoes are sold, but we still have a Coleman to paddle on a nearby lake.


At Christmas time one of my boats gets placed on our front lawn and decorated!

If you enjoy small sailboats or canoes, you should find something of interest here. If you are in the market for a used sailboat, a canoe, trailer or a small boat item, you may find it here. If you have a small boat or trailer to sell, I would be happy to post it for you free of charge, provided it is located in the Delaware Valley region. When I registered this domain about 10 years ago, I never dreamed that it would someday be popular, but the site now gets over 2000 visitors per day! I get email and phone calls from all over the globe, but don't accept paid advertising. So enjoy your visit!
