North Star 23''''

I just reread your post, Hughes Northstar was started life as Hughes and was started by Howard Hughes (not that HH) building a line of quirky but well built boats. In the early 1970''s US steel bought Hughes and tooled up a bunch of interesting (and not so interesting) boats including the Hughes Northstar 727 that you are probably looking at. Most of these boats were from top designs like Bruce Farr and S&S.
