Yes, it's extremely unlikely that these are the same boats.. someone mentioned Herreshoff, and 1920s, and "Ventura" and it so happened this popped up. I'm thinking the OP can check the owner list and eliminate this one from his hunt.
To my eye the original pic doesn't bring old Nat to mind.... but I'm not sure.
