Owner’s comments:

As I write this, I’m very emotional about this, really don’t want to sell but she’s just been ‘sitting’ for the last several years I had thought we might end up with a house on a major waterway, but I don’t think that’s unlikely to happen now so “Patricia Leigh” really should go where she’ll be sailed.

Ivory hull, beige deck, white sail. Daggerboard model.

Located on Union Lake in Millville, NJ.

Ivory colored fiberglass hull with BEIGE colored fiberglass deck. Teak woodwork, varnished Douglas fir spars, bronze hardware.   White colored Dacron sprit sail.  Incudes oars, mooring cover in good condition, tiller extension, both a dolly and a trailer.



The equipment that comes with the boat is as seen in the pictures. The only equipment that is not original is the sheet line. The boat, rigging, and sail are in very good condition and has been babied all its life, was always covered, the sails stored inside, and it lives safely inside in the winter.  The trailer has some rust on the tongue but is in good roadworthy condition.  I do have the NJ title for the both boat and trailer.  All registrations are up to date.


The story is that I have loved owning and sailing the boat.  It is a delight both in behavior and performance.  I hate to part with her, however compromised mobility from an accident many years ago now makes it harder to enter and exit the boat so it’s time for someone else to enjoy the Melonseed as much as I have.

Like New 2013 Melonseed Skiff “Skylark”


Dark blue hull, ivory deck, tanbark sail

Centerboard model Located in coastal southeastern MA


Here are the owner’s comments:

“Skylark” is as close to a brand new Melonseed as you will ever see but priced nicely below her full retail value when new. Old ski injuries and 30 years of sea kayaking have taken their toll on my shoulders, so it is time to pass Skylark along to another. After sailing on Roger’s Melonseed the was no other name for me but “Skylark”; an old Jazz standard by Ella Fitzgerald and by Wynton Marsalis. She moves seamlessly through the water with a grace that is impossible to capture.


Her total on the water time is less than 4 hours, most of that in fresh water. She has not been in the water the for past six years, lovingly cared for, covered and stored in a heated garage for the vast majority of that time, inclusive of every winter.

Optional equipment included the mooring cover, name and pinstripe, oars, Cetol finish on the woodwork, a US ensign and flagstaff on the rudder head, the anchor package and cushions.


The accompanying Loadrite trailer was purchased new with the boat in 2013 and has the upgrade larger 12” wheels & a spare tire, custom fitted for Melonseed. The trailer hubs were repacked with synthetic Amsoil marine lubricant and Bearing Buddies. There are less than 150 miles on trailer, and it is in pristine condition.

“Sunshine Daydream”


Dark blue hull, beige deck, linen sail.

Located on Long Island, NY about 30 miles east of NYC.

DARK BLUE colored fiberglass hull with BEIGE colored fiberglass deck. Teak woodwork with varnished finish, varnished Douglas fir spars, bronze hardware. Linen (crème) colored Dacron sprit sail. Incudes oars, seat cushions, mooring cover, gold pinstripe on the sheer line, new rigging, teak flagstaff and ensign. New Load Rite trailer! Protective graphite and epoxy coating on the bottom of the hull below the waterline.


“Sunshine Daydream” was completely reconditioned in the fall of 2018 and brought back to a beautiful like new condition. She is a great example of how well Melonseed Skiffs can be reconditioned by the builder, and their value and appearance enhanced considerably.

This has been a Great Friend for many years and I had the chance to participate in a few Regatta’s as well. The Boat has a little wear on her from use and needs some teak oil, but overall is in Good Condition. The original model that will go with it too.
