Susan Joanne

In Festival Boats 2017

Susan Joanne is a Devlin Onyx 28′ sailboat design. She has a wood epoxy matrix hull, utilizing the stitch and glue technique of constriction. She is a maximum trailer-able sailboat, so she could be towed to other ports. I started to build this boat in 2000. I completed the first layer of the hull on the molds, before my job changed and I did not have the time to complete her. In 2012, I took her to Sam to have her completed. Sam and his crew completed her in Bristol fashion, and she gets lots of compliments. She is an ideal cruising sailboat for two, and would accommodate on a short cruise. We have enjoyed sailing her in Puget Sound and the San Jaun Islands.
