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.

Rawson w/ sprit is 32 feet

The Rawson 30 is 30.5 feet overall, and with later factory sprit is 32 feet overall. The sail logo along with the cove stripe can be viewed at the "Good Old Boat" website.

The Rawson also moves along in light winds more efficiently than one would imagine, but she excels in "old school" cruising where boats of 30 feet were considered the norm for offshore work. If you really want to know more about this proven bluewater cruiser visit "The Rawson Owners' Network" on yahoo.

Yeah, The Rawson is no lightweight in light winds, but wait until this afternoon when the wind picks up, - r

Also, the Rawson sail has a 3R on it, in block italics, not a roman font, like the Ranger "R".

Lastly, the boat was estimated at 32 feet, and the Rawsons were 30' full-keel boats displacing 12000 lbs. Not the kind to be moving along very well, unless it was really blowing. The Ranger 32, at 9500 lbs. is much more likely the boat he saw.

Last point in favor of the Rangers, IIRC—some were cutter-rigged, I don't believe any of the Rawsons were.
