What is it?

Hello
I recently acquired this sailboat. I am having difficulty identifying it though.
If anyone know what it is and the date of manufacture. It would be greatly appreciated. I have been told it is a Dana 24. But I can't find one like it.
Thank You

Re: What is it?

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Nirrad.

It's not a Dana 24.

Re: What is it?

I was rendered speechless at first glance.

Why the casual disregard for what looks like a respectable wheelbarrow? What marina would leave a wheelbarrow, with a ferrous tray, in the drink?

Why not order immediate repair of the main pontoon walkway?

The same marina that would prominently feature bull rails

I will get more photos in the near future. Suppose to be fibreglass.

Yes. The wheelbarrow is a sad loss to the community. We will be holding a service as soon as the water level goes back down. We are in the middle of a major flood here.


No comment.

Re: What is it?

If you have the HID (Hull ID number) it encodes the builder, size, hull number, and year built.

Re: What is it?

Well, Nirrad - that was quite a welcome, wasn't it :-)?

Certainly the boat is not of conventional aspect, but then, I'm sure, the same may be said of many of the members of this 'ere forum. They may sail quite adequately even so :-)!

So now for the boat:

The pic sez clearly that you are in British Columbia. You confirm it by mentioning the flood we are living through. My workshop flooded, but what I lost is as nothing compared with the losses of the poor farmers in Sumas Prairie down the street from me! So just where are you? Harrison Lake by any chance ? I ask because if you are near me, I'll gladly take a swing by to see what you've really got. Send me a PM if you would like.

You can disregard the comment about bullrails. Bullrails is the BC standard, and they are in many, many ways superior to any alternative I've ever had to do with. They do, of course, require that you know how to tie a knot called a "round turn and two hitches". Better still if you can tie that knot "on the bight". In the pouring rain. With one hand. In the dark. :-)

Now: That the boat is called a "Dana" - which I assume is something you've been told by the seller - in combination with the configuration of the stern indicates that the boat was designed by a novice with romantic notions. This FDP (Former Danish Person) thinks so, because there is a total misconception abroad in this 'ere colony, and more particularly to the south of us, that "if it's Danish, it's good". 'Taint necessarily so! The thinking seems to go like this: "Dana" ~ Danish. Pointy butt end ~ Redningssköjte. Aha! Must be one helluva sea boat!

All that notwithstanding, the boat may in fact be a perfectly fine boat in which to learn the basics, both about boat handling and about yacht design. So send me a PM and I will see what I can do to help you along.

All the best

How did you "acquire" it?

There should be a title and the title would have the name of the manufacturer and year of manufacture.

If you didn't get a title, you may not legally own the boat. You will have trouble registering or documenting it.

Re: What is it?

Maine is a "no title state". Just the registration and a bill of sail. I'd presume there may be other such states or provinces.

I've seen registrations with "unknown" in some of the fields. Also if the vessel is pre-1973 it may not have a HIN.

Re: What is it?

It strangely sits high out of the water, is it grounded in low tide? Bilge keel?

It was abandoned. I also can not find any plate or numbers.

No. It is floating. Like I said earlier. We are now at the end of a major flood but the water level is still a little high. Thank you for your concern.
