The Donald Lassiter Page

Over the years we've had several people build more than one of our projects, as Mr. Donald Lassiter has. What sets this builder apart from the crowd a bit is his thoroughness and all-around nice job! This is the nicest Vacationer we've seen yet. The Vacationer is the second boat project of ours he's built; fifteen years ago he built a Weekender.
We like the teal-and-white color combination, especially with the green tarp sails. Mr. Lassiter has done a complete job on this boat. He's added a permanent boom-crutch and a simple furling system for his jib. Both the peak and throat halyards are routed to the cockpit.
From the looks of the interior shots, this is a cozy boat. In this shot, one can just see the head area behind the partition. Mr. Lassiter has done a nice job on the brightwork, inside and out.
Here one can see the custom boom crutch, and the handmade wheel. What doesn't show up in these shots is the tounge-in-groove cedar deck!
The port interior shot shows the electrical system. This boat has small winches, a compass, lights, and a 42lb. thrust electric motor for auxilliary power. A great-looking installation!
The starboard interior has the galley stuff. The sink was made from one of his wife's stainless mixing bowls. Very handy...
This helmsman's-eye view makes us want to get our boats out; it looks like Mr. Lassiter has a nice spot to explore.

Our thanks to Donald for sharing his work!
