This 36' offshore cruising sharpie was originally commissioned by Bob & Sheila Wise who wanted to replace their 26' Bolger sharpie. She may be used as a floating office and home and, with her shoal draft, for coastal exploring where she will be able to sail well up rivers and estuaries normally inaccessible to deeper boats. Construction is ultra simple using the old sharpie method of bending pre-shaped sides around the frames and then putting the bottom on oversize and trimming later. The arrangement drawn has a central cockpit with inside/outside wheel steering, a double bunk. forward work area, and pilothouse/saloon. She could be fitted with an inboard engine but the original will be powered when the wind drops by 2 outboards in a well. There is stowage for the dinghy on the aft deck and plenty of working deck space forward. As drawn the masts are unstayed as with the original working sharpies and all rigging has been kept as simple as possible. Ballast is in the form of a 4000 lb. lead keel and the steel centreboard.
