Re: Help identifying this boat.

The boat's pedigree still has me stumped. It is shaped like the type of thing that Ron Holland was drawing around 1980 but the deck is all teak. Nobody put that much teak on a racer in 1980 - too heavy. Maybe it was a custom job for an owner who wanted pretty.

I think you are correct in your train of thought.

Re: Help identifying this boat.

Here is a 40ft Holland racer from 1980 - no teak. The boat in this thread looks a little smaller at around 35ft. Maybe a one tonner?
