Hello everyone. I purchased what I believe is a Glander Cay 23' sailboat built in 1970. I was repairing the transom and rail cap the other day and noticed two small epoxy
filled in holes on the transom..... Hmmm, I thought to myself this is odd. After a little cleaning
of the transom this number became clear (INZ 00010 K202), this is a homemade HIN number from Indiana stating it was built in 2002. I checked the HIN websites and there are no matches. The HIN was engraved roughly and I don't put to much credit into it. My boat diesel
is a Yanmar
1GM, I think serial
number 818. I have a title stating its a 1970 or 78 boat (sorry the title is at home).
The more research
I do into this boat I begin to notice many odd things, like the interior
is a mismatch between a Parkins and a Glander Cay version or even a little if a Middleton marine interior
. The over all fit in finish is of excellent quality, the boat is cover in teak
and bronze. The interior was finish by a boat yard I pretty sure, a boat smith I've hired thinks the same. The exterior has been alter here and there, you can tell this by the oddness of winch
locations and hatch
openings. The boat smith thinks the hatches and companion way has been replaced by someone without real boat building experience by how its designed.
The LOD is right at 23',6''. The LOL is almost 27'. Neither measurement is accurate with the Glander Cay info I've found, close but not right on. The measurements are closer to the true measurements of a Herreshoff Prudence.
There is a few photos of the boat on my page, please take a look and see if you'll can help me Identify this thing. Any insight into where a manufacturers hull
ID could be hidden??? I searched the bilge
the other day no luck
Also I'm having extensive repairs
and items built for her. New companion way, new Tiller handle and rudder
combing and winch
blocks to start with.
Also started removing fiberglass
to fix the deck core
above the chain locker, around the bow sprint, and on the transom.
I'll start posting
photos pretty soon of the over haul.
