LOL...no.
She's the one listed on YachtWorld: 1980 Allmand 31 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

After all my complaining about not really wanting to go all the way to Norfolk, the opportunity presented itself (okay, I contacted the broker and asked, but still...), and I thought it was too good to pass up. So I drove down there last Friday night, then saw that boat and 2 others while I was there.

I've been pretty anal about taking pictures of all the boats, mostly so I remember what's wrong with them when I get home. I have some nice pictures of a Hunter 30 and the Newport 30 mentioned earlier in this thread. When I got aboard the Allmand, I took lots of pictures of the deck, cockpit, etc. I opened up the cabin to go below, and thought "hmmmm...I should video this because it will give me a better sense of the layout." So, I shot the video, which was REALLY poorly done - apparently I need to move even slower than I did - and then somehow I basically put the camera/phone away and didn't take it out again until I was off the boat. I could have SWORN I took pictures of the cabin, but they aren't on my phone anywhere!

Any way, here are a few of the shots:
