A classic late-40's Monk design, stoutly built for Alaska service by Shane, and recently re-powered with Volvo DIESEL, she's 65 years young and rarin' to go cruising! Confirmed totally sound, with NO work needed, by April 2012 survey. Alaska Yellow Cedar planking over steamed Oak ribs; gorgeous Teak cabinsides. NEW wiring, NEW electrical-panels, NEW Plumbing, FRESH bottom-paint; engine barely broken-in at only 130 hours. V-drive (yes, even this is NEW!) permits engine installation way aft under cockpit for much-reduced noise; 8.5 knots at an effortless 2200 rpm burns only 2gph. Diesel cookstove; new fridge and MW; all-new fixtures and plumbing in head. Easy to keep her in this great condition, by confirmed availability of her current (rare) rentable boathouse in NorthEast Tacoma. Wood-boat afficionados: this is NOT a delicate "collector's item" but a totally serviceable rugged ready-to go cruiser.
Easy to board from dock, thru hinged portside door in Teak cockpit coaming. Large engine-room hatch is concealed under waterproof throw-rug; cockpit plenty large enough for two upholstered porch-chairs as well as two vinyl-covered corner seats up against the cabin bulkhead.
Enter aft cabin thru dutch-door and sliding companionway hatch; two steps down to passage between short settee to port, dinette to starboard - both on raised plinths to ensure good seated viewing out the two large aftmost side windows. There's also an aluminum-framed sliding window in the aft bulkhead, another over the galley sink, for summertime ventilation. Dinette table drops down and cushions re-arrange to make a most comfortable double berth; curtains all around for aft-cabin privacy.
Directly ahead of the dinette is a compact galley, with the most-modern version of the classic Diesel cookstove on centerline against forward bulkhead, adjacent to L-shaped countertop with cabinets below. Large cabinet under the forward dinette seat has door from galley-side. SSTL sink set into hullside countertop. Across from galley area is enclosed private head; just ahead of that is new dorm-type fridge with microwave above.
Two steps up past the fridge, and you're in the Pilothouse-like helm area. Plenty of windows out: two small aft-facing windows are just above the open pass-thru from the galley; large windows either side are just aft of the two sliding doors out to side-decks. Up front ahead of the dash are the windshields with very good view forward across the rather short foredeck. Helm is dominated by oversized eight-spoke wheel. Comfort for the captain when perched atop the leather four-legged tall helmseat; great view out for the guests when perched atop the UltraLeather corner settee set upon drawer-pedestal.
Companionway thru the dashboard bulkhead leads into classic forepeak stateroom outfitted with the more-modern layout of a double-berth off to the side; shelf-storage underberth, hanging lockers and new Cedar cabinetry to hullside. Anchor-rode locker with proper-ventilating "ceiling" brings the interior-outfitting right up to the bow.

Built by Shane of Seattle, to design by Ed Monk Sr, for Alaska service, thus heavier than typical scantlings:
Alaska Yellow Cedar planking milled to 1.5" (some places 1.25"), bronze-fastened to steamed-Oak frames 1.75" x 1.25" on close-spacing (typically 8" o/c, some places 9" to 12" o/c).
Hull re-fastened by Sunnfjord Boatworks, approx 6 years ago. A few planks replaced as required; recorked/recaulked at that time.
Hull interior tarred thru centerline and between engine stringers; remainder of planking treated with Cuprinol where not painted.
Marine plywood decking, rubberized coating with deep-etched non-skid pattern.
Fresh bottom-paint April 2012.
Marine Survey by James Lamb (April 2012) shows NO findings save for one cracked window! (and to finish the cookstove smokestack, of course...) "Above average condition"... Survey available for viewing; can be purchased by buyer to submit to their insurer.
Dinghy not included in purchase price -- available separately for $500
