Oshun is my version of Ross’ beach cruiser- a nimble small boat for one or two to enjoy on day sails or short cruises. While not aimed at racing, all reviews say it can provide a satisfying challenge for experienced sailors and also behave in the hands of a novice. With a centerboard and kick-up rudder it can be brought into the shallows or pulled up on shore. If the wind falls or you’re navigating a narrow channel it can be rowed comfortably. There is a self bailing motor well for a small (electric?) outboard if needed. The balanced lug rig is light and quick to set up and take down. The Dacron sail has an area of 76 sq. ft. and was professionally made. The mast and spar are made of Douglas Fir using the birdsmouth technique and so are hollow and will prevent “turtling” in a capsize. There are flotation chambers bow and stern. The boat itself is quite light and with the optional aluminum trailer can be towed by even many small cars.
The boat is built of Meranti marine ply. It’s fully coated with marine epoxy with fibreglass added in several areas. All surfaces have been painted or varnished with marine finishes. All hardware and fasteners are either brass, bronze or stainless steel.
Included are a set of oars and some accessory mounts to hold the mast while trailering and another to hold the mast up as a ridgepole for a covering tarp. The included tarp is functional but light duty and may have to be replaced in a couple of years.
The Trailex aluminum trailer is optional. It’s 4 years old but little used and in good shape. It would add $1,000 Cdn to the price.
