A lot could have happened to a boat in 30 years.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Lucayan

I've kept pictures of Lucayan in my backpack for 15 years.

She is a Colvin designed cargo schooner built by Parker Marine Service in Florida. 73' overall, centerboard, all aluminum.

She was for sale in the back of Cruising World for a couple years. I dreamed of so many ways to use that boat. I was starting a business in Florida and had no money at all. I finally called the guy in about 1992. I told him I was NOT going to buy his boat but if I sent $5 would you send me a couple photos.

I saw her for sale once a few years later on boattrader.com. I haven't seen her since.

jrh69ca, I know how you feel.

Have you tried typing her into google?
And, if I may ask, what connection do you have with her? I think it's always interesting to hear about different kinds of boats.

While you are at it, there was this girl that I had a crush on in High School but was too shy to ask out. Her name was Lynn. She was 5'10" with blonde hair. You know the type, kind of a girl next door with a wild streak. If you come across her when you are looking for your own long lost love..will you let me know?

lol!
Seriously, this is weird, I tried googling "Wild Call" and this thread came up. But no luck on the boat. Couldn't find that hot blonde either.

If the boat was documented, and if it still is documented and carrying the same name, you can use the national vessel information center, listing all documented vessels and their particulars.
