Yes it official we have a name for the new boat! Meet Chugger Knot a 24 Seaforth double ended.

We finally were given a weather window to start sanding, faring and getting primer on with two coats of paint before the rain comes. After the rains we will sand again for the next two coats.

We are using a two part interlux perfection in oyster white and awlgrip a two part polyurethaning in grey green.

  1. Chugger Knot. Totally dig that name. Any backstory on the name? Also the finish Awl Grip leaves is absolutely unreal! We rely on it a lot here in the fishing industry and it’s applied to a lot of the boats here. Very durable that is for sure.

    1. The name came from nothing more than the sound of that 1 cylinder 10hp Yanmar , as soon as we heard it we both jumped on that name Chugger Knot. As for the paint we have always stayed in the 2 part perfection, but I wanted this color I had found that was used on an historical vessel up north, just so happened it’s an awl grip specially mixed color. And it won us over, even doing the job in a field, outside with no protection from the elements it turned out wonderfully. I agree it turns out to be just as tuff as the 2 part perfection, finders rubbing, banging dock in NE blow and not a scratch . Definitely winning!

  2. Impressive, quality restoration!

    I have recently aquired a Seaforth 24 and have spent many hours reducing the chalk oxidation to bring back the green hull. Teak sanded and oiled etc.

    This seems to be a low production numbers boat. Are you familiar with how many were produced?


    1. Hello Scott, I guess congratulations is in order. These little boats are great day sailors , they handle heavy winds the point great no
      Pull on the rudder at hull speed. Rigging is a bit weak , mount on the deck a bit weak. Other than that just an all around nice sailing vessel. Unfortunately we have sold ours to only start on a new project, a 28’ 1958 Owens, a wooden vessel that is a power vessel which was a nice barn find. It’s been in a barn for 45 years , it is much like the 60’ Alden we restored so we are excited to get this one back in the water. As far as the seaforth and how many were produced I believe we read around 300 not very many and not many to be had. Good luck and enjoy the process. Dee
