Seeking Mystery Boat

Aloha, I am new here and hoping the group can help me out. You may think I am somewhat crazy and you may be right about that. I wonder about myself often.

Mystery Boat: I am seeking any information about a boat I saw back in the early 1980's in a dry moorage in Seattle. It was on a trailer. I can only describe it the best that I can and then hope what I say here tips someone off as to what the make of this boat is. I have searched the internet for two days looking at images, etc using all kinds of keywords such as

drop keel
shoal keel
swing keel
24 sailboat with bowsprit
1800 lbs ballast shoal draft
outboard compartment

Here is what I can tell you the boat had:

swing keel
shoal draft
bowsprit
outboard compartment
full rudder
had a keel that looked like a full keel and the swing keel then came down from there. Looked to draw about 2.5-3'
good sized space below with head room of about 5.10-6'
Green hull
perhaps 24' or less
teak interior with enclosed marine head
the owner told me it was designed to cruise bluewater.
The asking price used at the time was $12,000 and in good condition.

Ring any bells?
