Looks like about a billion other neglected and abandoned boats all along the St. Johns :-/

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

I reckon a half tonner from around 1970 - 1974 making it around 29 or 30 ft.

Think she's a Mull Ranger? The decks look a bit high, but hose are pretty fun sailing boats. Wet, but fun. If its a Ranger 37, it likely has an Atomic Four, is keel stepped (check the mast step, its iron), and the interior is undersized. Scrapping the factory galley and relocating it further aft makes a ton more space inside.

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

I dont remember the R37 having the "turned in" topsides at the deck joint....? Is that what I'm seeing on the forward 1/3 of the boat? Also..... it appears that some abortive attempt at a wineglass transom shape is molded to the boat...?

Thanks in advance.
Is she in Micronesia? - another broken dream / broken bank account ....if that the case a back story would be nice . If she is in Mircronesia a good scrub and some photos on a nice day might be able to flog someone a dream of paradise Buyer collects .

But from the height she is floating I am guessing that anything that wasn't nailed down has already gone - possibly including the engine?......

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

Similar to the R37, but the line between cockpit an cabin breaks and steps up on the mull boat. This one is a smooth line to the deck.

Not a Ranger 37. They have 4 portholes and this boat only has 2.

Re: ID this Yacht or I Scuttle Her

Where it is located favours Aussie design, something out of Sydney that was targetted at club racing BUT i think the cabin has been modified for cruising, A bit like Bollards GRP range?

Saved her from scuttling. Thanks for the clue Would have made a decent mooring though. She's a Roberts 34. Probably from a hull and deck kit.
