Ipsut is a 1977 junk rigged dory schooner, possibly built by a Steve Johnson on Guemes Island, Washington’s San Juan Islands. She is almost 30′ overall, with about 21′ waterline. Construction is top shelf tradional wood: steam bend oak and sawn fir frames, cedar lapstrake planks, copper rivets, bronze hardware, unstayed spruce masts, sails made in Port Townsend. I believe the boat is an adaptation from Chappell’s, Classic America Small sailing craft, I forgot the page number. She is a Swampscott dory type hull, heavily built flat bottom, 400 lb.. steel centerboard raisable steel rudder, ready to take the hard with no problem. 12″ draft, 2 5 foot with the centerboard down.
She weights 3300 lbs bare hull.
Port and starboard companion ways into the cabin, two berths, two opening portholes forward.
Outboard motor well in the cockpit sporting a Torqeeto 1100 long shaft electric motor. She also has a very efficient yuloh for sculling. Use them together in dead silence to impress the dockside crowd?
She has two anchors, 35 ish and about 40 lbs, each with anchor rodes about 150′ long to include 30-40′ of leaded line. The junk rig schooner sails so well! Very well balanced, easy to shorten or shake out sail, one halyard, one sheet each.
She has had a few owners along the way that I don’t know about. I’ve been taking care of her for 8 years. She is overall in very good shape living on lake chelan, well cared for dry during the winter. I found one small area mid ship inside the toe rail where the deck needs a repair, 4 inches by 4 inches, surface damage, otherwise I can say there is nothing major to do to her other than easy pre and post season maintenance. I have her bright work oiled and use Deks Olja# 2 as a top dressing.
She has been on the inside passage probably a few times, looks as if a wild eyed adventurer could take her around the northwest passage…
So dream on this beautifully built unique boat.
