Identify this boat please.

Is this an Alden? There is a whole club of them at our marina, I think I am in love.

Oh come on! Anyone? I guess I have to wait for the east coasters to wake up in the AM. Its not a Freyja, or a Pisces, or an Alerion, or an LS. Maybe a modern plan one design?

I'll let you know tomorrow when I am back down there, they do charters and there is a website, but it slips my old memory right now.
Edit - Thats funny! I hate to tell you this, but that thing is an old piece of **** too!

It looks a lot like a folkboat to me. There were numerous builders and the deck, cabin and cockpit varied but we have quite a few of them and that is about what they look like.

Or an Optimist depending on what picture you are looking at.

The big ugly blue thing looks like and old two tonner ??

Folkboat is a modern build of an old design then?

Gary..now that he posted the second photo, the big blue boat, really looks like one of those Admiral's Cup boats, from the end of the 80's....

I doubt it... it appears to be an older design, with a wooden boom

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.

Not an Alerion. This has the rudder going through the cockpit, not off the stern like the Alerion.
