ATTENTION SMALL SAILBOAT FANS! Yahoo has apparently sold out to Amazon and is closing it's small boat forums in December, 2019. This site has a library of small sailboats with information on a number of them. If desired, I can post more information such as manuals, history etc. to help fill the void. A forum with mail exchange is out of my expertise, however!

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

I recently created a website to honor Captain Marvin Creamer's historical Globe Star Voyage. 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.


I have boats for sale and projects that are still 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 I am always looking for small trailers and sailboats in any condition. If it is not restorable, I can use the parts.


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!


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

We enter our Roadmaster "Woodies" (Junior and Senior!) pulling a sailboat in local parades. At Christmas time one of my boats gets placed on our front lawn and decorated. The photo below is from 2010. For more Christmas decorations click here.

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 15 years ago, I never dreamed that it would someday be popular, but the site now gets over 1000 visitors per day! I get email and phone calls from all over the globe, but I don't accept paid advertising. So enjoy your visit!
