Ahhh, yes... yet ANOTHER American (OK, presumably) yacht owner proudly flying the flag of a foreign tax haven... Don't ANY of these guys have an ancestor who might have paid the ultimate price, at some far-flung place like Bastogne, or Tarawa, and been returned to their homeland in a box draped with the Stars & Stripes?

Just sayin'... Sorry, just a particular pet peeve of mine...

That looks like the one, though I'm surprised I missed the mark on the length so badly. I guess on open water like that its tough to tell. I circled her at a respectful distance and guessed she was double the length of my 36 or more. I guess the distance must have been a bit more respectful than I thought.
