Kind of reminds me of a boat I knew in Hawaii. The owner & four friends went out for an afternoon sail and just like in Gilligans Island a storm blew up (100 mph winds at the airport) The Coast Guard was looking for them for 5 days. They had 1/2 gal of water, the boat's rig was shredded but they all made it back.

Wow . . . what a shame. How she could, and should, look:

the pilothouse looks very very weird.

Yeah, that house is obviously an aftermarket "improvement."

Her lines are certainly suggestive of a Friendship sloop, but there are knockoffs based on the Friendship lines, like the Stevenson Projects Weekender and Vacationer, seen here:

Nice lines. Nothing a few 55 gallon drums of naval jelly and a grinder won't cure.

Thanks - I think I need a tetanus shot, just looking at that. Why do you suppose they went for a steel mast?

Perhaps it was an experiment to try to disprove the theory of weight aloft.....

Yes, I think it is. I also saw a Russian catamaran that had a titanium cabin which was salvaged from a submarine I think.

cheers,
Nick.
