Looks a little like classic Ericson 41.
Maybe....

Looks like olson has it.. I can't see any trace of the Hinckley logo on the sheer stripes..

And this looks good:
Ericson 41

Looks like a Bermuda 40 to me. That stem is too curved to be by Bruce King.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Hi guys here's an update

It is a 1968 Javelin 38 designed by bill tripp, very similar to hinckley 40 b
Was on board yesterday for a tour after meeting the owner . There were only 25 built. His won the Halifax to Marblehead ocean race in 1991. Since then he's completely redesigned the interior. Being a cabinet maker the work is pristine. He has also shortened the boom by 2 feet and purchased a new main. My favorite part was the old style binnacle w/ compass

1977 Laser 1
1980 Edel 665
Dinghy!!! With a 2 horse

That is not Majek. She is not a Javelin 38. She is not an Ericson. SloopJonB is right. She is a Bermuda 40, actually a Bermuda 40 Mark III sloop. Rig has been modified, double spreader rig 4 1/2 ft higher than original. How do I know this ? She's mine.

Not Halifax to Marblehead. She won the Marion to Bermuda race in 1997.
