The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    Hi, new member. My father used to own a hot rodded Buccaneer 24 with a 38 foot rig, was named Twixt. Sailed in the Toronto area and here in BC. Currently I own a foam Buccaneer 33. I can see why my dad always said they were some of the best designed boats out there.

    Are the plans for the 24 still available? Thanks.

    "Are the plans for the 24 still available? Thanks."

    Yes they are Spiritwolf. Rack up five posts on these forums and we can converse by Private Messaging.

    Thanks OS7 :D

    Five posts I have made, and one more for good measure
    While questing for plans; Buccanner 24
    These dreams like gull wings skimming o'er the harbor
    To build a fine boat, and to sail far from shore
    24 feet of hull, 24 hours to wait
    Before PM function bequeathed on my nym
    At that time I shall begin to communicate
    And perchance buy a set of boat plans straight from him

    Buccaneer 24 plans for sale

    Hi OS7, I'm keen to get hold of a set of plans for the Buc 24 but need to rack up the required 5 post etc. I don't wish to post boring messages to achieve this as it clutters the forum up.

    Having not sailed a Buc 24 I can only theorise on her performance based on accurate and authentic accounts. Clearly the design is old in both hydrodynamic and construction terms, but does that mean she's a poor design to build today? I don't think so. I've always favoured simple plywood, stringer and framing construction, either with or without Epoxy/glassed joints. Therefore I'll feel right at home building the Buc.

    I am interested to know how she performs in a seaway though. Gven the low prismatic hull and float and rockered keel, does she pitch and hobby horse excessively? I only intend to day sail with perhaps four crew (good weather only) and cruise with a crew of two with minimum gear and stores.

    As an ex backpacker/mountaineer/cyclist/canoeist I'm well versed in the arts of travelling lightly. Infact my current boat, an aging Pandora MK1 being 22ft LOA and four berth, I find 'too' spacious for my needs. Therefore 'downsizing' to the Buc wouldn't be a problem at all.

    Anyway I'll keep in touch.

    Cheers for now

    Rob

    Thanks for your enquiry Rob.
    You only need to type one word to make a post, and thats in ANY thread on these forums.
    It's worth doing so we can communicate by PM, the most secure method.
    Cheers. OS7

    Just received the plans, OS7. Thank you for sending them out so quickly! That enclosed article and the tips on epoxy are really helpful. Heading over to the Buccaneer 24 thread to see what tips people have for building one.
