Re: Help identifying this 2-master

Not a great angle, but it has some similarities to some of Dashew's designs: plumb-ish bow, rectangular ports in the hull, big hard dodger.

I'm curious as to which dodger you are referencing. The twin wheels can clearly be seen and appear to be entirely exposed. The wraparound window strip belongs to the pilothouse/deck saloon/pilot saloon/whatever else builders are calling them now, something that is indeed present on most of Dashew's designs. However, the rest of the design differs so wildly from those other boats that it would be a shock to me if something with so many sumptuous curves came off of that table. A boat of that size could easily be a one-of and with designers "sharing" so many ideas these days it may be difficult to find the answer without the name of the vessel.

Call it what you wish... to me it looks like the things that live in that spot on some of Steve's designs. And those structures are appealing to me, w hatever you call them.

Obviously, I'm only making a wild guess, but then, so are you as far as I can tell.

And some of Steve's designs are indeed one-offs...

And for that matter, I seem to see a single large wheel, not two smaller ones... not that this matters, for those items are kinda afterthoughts and not definitive as to design origin.

Re: Help identifying this 2-master

My vote is for a one-off.

Looks like a ketch, but I can't see the heights of both masts... is it a schooner, perhaps?

I don't much like it, though, Snort. (Sorry.) No portholes along the waterline for me, please!

Good luck with figuring it out. You were close enough to get a pic, but was there no one at home you could ask about the boat? Most owners will proudly discourse about their beloved vessels to anyone who will listen!

Warmly,

Re: Help identifying this 2-master

Definitely not a Dashew design. The pilothouse is more like I’ve seen on some French designs or even deck saloon Tayana.

That's as close as I could get to it. It was at the end of a long dock near the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco.

Re: Help identifying this 2-master

spreader height says ketch to me.

Angles bad, but a little too much freeboard and house height for my taste.

Re: Help identifying this 2-master

I notice it's flying a courtesy flag....

My vote is for a one off. Not knowledgeable enough to guess whose, but it's unusual, and so is the anchor!....maybe it's French? Can't really tell if it is of alumin(i)um construction.
