Tracking Down a Mull 58

I understand that a Mull 58, built in aluminum by Palmer Johnson in 1970 for Lynn Williams, raced in the 1971 SORC, and then named "Dora" now lives somewhere in the Caribbean as a cruiser.

Has anyone seen her, and can they put me in touch with the owners? I knew her professional back then, was greatly impressed with her as a sea boat (though her owner decided that she'd been out-designed by the new S&S 62s) and sold her.

I have been told that she lived in Cape Cod as "Safari", but not sure of the accuracy of that tale.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Tracking down a Mull 58

Any luck on tracking down the Mull 58 called Dora, or any other ? I have heard of another called "Famous Namis". Would love to see a photo of either or spec sheet, what year did Gary Mull design them ?

The Orion 50 was originally designed by Gary Mull as a 58, shortened by Ta Shing the builder, to 50ft.

I have a Orion 50 modified back to its original plans so 58ft, just sailed across Pacific now in French Polynesia. It is truly a great sea boat with good turn of speed.

Smooth seas fair winds

Have yet to find a trail of 'Dora'. She was new for the 1971 SORC, built in aluminum by Palmer Johnson of Wisconsin for the late Lynn Williams of Chicago.

I ran into another Mull design, 'La Forza Del Destino' in Florida in 1972 for the SORC as well. Gorgeous boat!
