About Stout

Stout on the hard when I first went to look at her.

 

Stout is a Falmouth Cutter 22, the baby sister to the Bristol Channel Cutter. She was built in 1983. Originally she was built without an engine, and sometime around 2006 a Yanmar was installed. I bought her in 2012 after selling my house and we have been enhancing her to be a comfortable home as well as a seaworthy one. She is small enough to be handled by one person and being so small is cheaper to maintain.

    Cool boat! Came across them on boat porn sites and can see myself in one if I were to go world sailing in anything smaller than what we already have. I hope you two will have plenty of joy sailing her places!

    I seen stout in December anchored on Taylor Creek. I made my dad drive me over to your boat so I could take pictures and I actually took a video to.

    • Woah cool! Where exactly is Taylor creek? We’re trying to remember….

        It’s just down from Oriental NC, really close to Fort Macon. I love your boat, those stern port windows are a cool touch. I have a Flicka, wonderful little boat but I’ve been searching for a Falmouth. I went and seen one down in Florida that needs a lot of work but can’t seem to talk the seller into letting her go.

    I was the second owner of Stout. At the time she was named Angelsea. I purchased her in ’85. I took the engine out and fiberglassed up the aperature. Made her very fast in light air and gave me more storage. She is so easy to manage it was not a problem. I traded the new Yanmar for a triradial drifter. So I had both a drifter and an asymmetrical spinnaker for her. In ’89 I completely rebuilt the interior. The original owner had finished it and was not very good.
    Then sailed her on a cruise down the the Sea of Cortez. Afterwards put her on a truck to Florida, then sailed her offshore to the Virgin Islands on a 21 day passage. Had to beat the entire distance, 2100 miles. So I averaged 100 miles a day. After owner her for 16 years that was her average, 100 miles a day. Finally I sold her in 2000 and sailed her with the new owner to NY via Bermuda. It was a great trip! Even though I now have a BCC I sure do miss her.
