Possibly a Ranger with a modified keel for offshore?Looks like the trailing edge is filled in.

I have a problem with provided photo of actual Ranger(on trailer), with lines drawing of hull profile of the 23ft.The rear end of keel does match.

The coving stripe looks the same so the hull mold was the same as Ranger. Could be a little known Ranger model? All the Rangers I know also have that swept keel and rudder.

LOL.. they never listen
try ISLANDER the ones from 1979 when perry designed the 26 and 28. this looks EXACTLY like mine. KEEL AND ALL . no problem. mine had stained glass ports. was a gas to sail.

i havent seen many rangers--dont they stay on east coast?? we dont get too many. we DO get islanders. tho, as they were built in costa mesa.

coulda been--spade --they can have some problems requiring replacement as i know from last trip we made in my friends boat in gulf--lol-he had to make a new rudder-- some do mods for weather helm tolerance--some tolerate more of that than do others...but sure do look alike in most other ways....is there sneaky one we dont know about??

lol--mine didnt have the galley--that is a nice boat...i reallly liked the stained glass--that was sooo cool...

Cockpit coaming looks wrong along with the cove strip.

sorry Z the combing is all wrong unless they changed, the Islander's combing wraps around to the top of the cabin, this vessel's combing ends at the cabin as you would see in a Ranger Islander 26 .

BTW Z, the Islander 26 looks like a sweet vessel, how did she sail?

The Incredible Hulk

Peeples --

I cannot find a HIN on her, even shining a light on the transom sideways in the dark. I haven't measured her, but 24 - 26 seems about right. I "think" the toerail was teak, not extruded like a Ranger. And that keel isn't right for a Ranger.

Any other guesses? Reason I'm asking: to determine keel size/weight for scrap - most hardware was removed with a sawzall.

John

Feral
The number should be either just right of her backstay, or if split backstay just under her starboard side backstay. It looks like gel coat so she will have one, run your hands over her stern you will find it.

PLUS we need more pictures! Of her stern, cockpit, and a close up of her bow (at the toe rail area) My ranger did not have an aluminium toe rail, she had teak cap.

whatever she is it is crime to scrap her, the sawzall guy should be smacked over the head (hard).

To scrap or not to scrap?

Not sure I agree - what about the previous owner(s) who let her deteriorate to the point of no realistic value as a seaworthy vessel? She was abandoned owing hundreds, maybe thousands, in slip fees as well. There are a lot of old boats out there, and we can't (and shouldn't) save every one of them.

Still looking for that HIN, but I won't be back down there 'til later this week.
