Identify: What boat has a flower in the hull?

I have not run into the owner yet, so I will ask you all. The boat in the next slip has a flower imprinted in the bow along the hull stripe.
The flower is about 2 inches in diameter with about 5 or six petals. The boat is about 30 ft LOA and very beamy with a center cockpit. I looked at all of the pics on here Good Old Boat - Boat Identifiers and could not find it. Sorry no picture, if no one can identify it based on my lousy description I will snap one this weekend.

What kind of flower does it resemble? I know my Ontario has an Oak Leaf at the rear, but don't recall ever seeing a flower near the bow of any of the boats I've seen.

John,
It looks like a daisy if I had to guess. IIRC, it has a center dot and petals arranged symmetrically around it. No other ID that I can see. The beam has a "potbellied" look from the front, swelling midline between the toerail and waterline.

Maybe it's a sunflower.

....That shape is called 'tumblehome', was common on a lot of 70s S&S designs and may have been a short lived IOR influence as well. The Ranger 28 is another tumblehome design as were some Aldens, I believe. The Catalina 38 is another one.

Interesting design feature that IMO sometimes works and sometimes not. I like the sections of the R 28, but find the Cat 38's tumblehome brings to mind a bit of 'saggy bum syndrome'....

Don't 'recognize' the daisy logo... a pic would be great.

And "beamy in the middle"!

I'm surprised a little that this has stumped the veterans. Granted my description was sans photo and scarce to go on, but I honestly expected a "silly newb, that sounds a Flipperstans 33, and by the sound of it, a 1978 Flipperstans with a Krakow diesel. These are notorious for for throwing a frangistat."

Picture coming in a couple of days. Maybe it can make the "Interesting sailboats" thread.

Didn't the Aloha's have a flower on their cove line?

There can's be that many 30' center cockpit boats, with or without the flower.
