Yes, if it is a Westerly it is most probably a Laurent Giles design and a stoutly built boat sure to be able to handle anything the lake dishes up if you can. Can you get any more pics?

Ed Steadman at Cow Bay Marine in Port Washington, NY used to sell Westerley and also chartered them, but that was in 70's and 80's

Pretty close Bob. but not quite. It is a Moody 33 Mk I, designed by Angus Primrose. The hollow bow was the tipoff for me. Here'a a link to all the details. Scroll down a bit and you can click for bigger pictures.

And Brian wins it!! It is maybe an '81 Moody 333 from what I can get from your link. Still, like PB said, its a whole lotta boat for Lake Maumelle, Arkansas. A long way away from Swanwick.

Bob, I would be glad to post more pics next weekend if you would like, but Brian's linked boat looks almost exactly like the one in the neighboring slip, down to the sunken well foredeck.

Thanks for the link Brian.

Right you are. I checked my archives and I could not find a Westerly that looked like it. They were kind of close but just not right. It's a good looking boat.

That foredeck 'bathtub' is an interesting feature.. sure hope it drains well but it would seem to provide some security for anchor handling.

Bill Garden's Gulf 32 from Capital/Newport had something similar, IIRC

The foredeck well has 2 drains that I know of. It is pretty large though. Good pic below.

Bob

I owned a Westerly 25 in 1972 and am a member of their Yahoo group - out of nostalgia I guess and have long read about or studied UK boats. Yachtsnet is great for the detail it shows of the boats for sale and after they are sold it just files the listing in an archive with open access. Great place for ideas.

The moment I saw the hollow bow I thought of Moody.

Angus Primrose also designed Gypsy Moth IV for Chichester and Galway Blazer for Bill King.

He was lost at sea off the same model Moody in 1980.
