Here's a chance for you guys and gals to show off your nautical trivia knowledge.
We were visiting Astoria OR late last week and of course I had to walk the "back lot" of the local boat yard.
This boat was on stands, unrigged. Looked like it had been sitting for a year or three, by the dirt on the hull.
It did look fast, under all the grime and the builder name was still faintly visible on the side.
Looking it up on the web I was surprised to find that the dark gray hull color was aluminum. The hull was Very fair, and could easily have been a FRP hull.
The rudder was skeg mounted and deep but tall, and looked like it might tend to stall easily, but not being an NA, I would not know for sure.
Anyhow, a quick search on line shows that model being French built in the late 70's.
Just out of curiosity, anyone here ever sailed one? Know much about it?
And no, I did not have a camera with me.
Actually we were in town to see Shanghaied in Astoria,
on its closing weekend!

We hissed the villain, threw some popcorn at him, and cheered the hero. A very satisfactory evening!
