Anyone know what kind of boat this is? Its 9 feet long and I just bought it for a low low price. Some previous damage on the bow, but it floats. Its my first sailboat. Im very new to sailing. Thanks for any help.

A little hard to tell from that one picture, but I think you have yourself a 470. Checkout this site and look at the pictures and see if it is the same. http://sailingsource.com/470na/picture.htm

470

It looks like a 470 to me but a 470 is not 9 feet long. It was the 9 feet that stopped me responding because I do not know of any boats that length that look like that. BC Mike C

Duh I didn't see the 9ft part. Hmmm, so what's it made from Jonesy, wood or GRP? It could be a "Modern Moth" but I don't think they were 9ft either. Are you sure it is 9ft. There are many designs that have a very similar look, but the differences being Sail plan, mast position, keel design and of course length. So although I said it looks like a 470 and it does, it does also look like a lot of designs out there. Just as BC Mike stated, I don't know of anything at 9ft either. But then I don't kow a lot.

I sent it to my daughter at college. She said that it looked like a 420. She grew up sailing them at the St Joseph Junior Foundation Sailing School in St, Joseph MI. Except 420's are 14' long. Then she said "well it sure doesn't look 9' on that trailer"

Now that I look at it I have to agree. Are you sure of the 9'?

If you can get the manufacture's ID code then you'll have it.
