Sorry, I wasn't familiar with the nuance of the "4".

Here is a boat with an interesting story that I will share after someone I.D.'s the model (shouldn't take long). I do not have photoshop capability, so I will trust folks TO NOT CHEAT by searching the boat's name in the registries:

kwaltersmi is on a distinguished road
The hull shape reminds me of a Tayana 37, but the Tayana isn't a ketch and I believe the deck is quite different. So, basically I'm telling you I don't know what it is!

Kwalt,

No, not a Tayana, although the 37 did come in ketch as well as cutter versions. In this case, note the stern-hung rudder.

This may be a boat for our european brethren to i.d., or some of the old salts here on the Sailnet.

I'm thinking a larger Westsail..43 perhaps... but it also reminds me of Motessier's Joshua.

Ding DingÖ Faster wins! Well done.

Indeed, this is a Joshua. Designed by Jean Knocker, in collaboration with Bernard Moitessiere, and built of steel, the original Joshua is said to measure out at 39 feet. This example, Samos, was built in the US and I believe measures out at 42' LOD.

Faster's turn again!

Okey dokey.... NO takers on this one. Oh well, Blowinsouth did say we could do semi custom production boats.

This is a former boat of ours, a Kaufman designed Choate 40. An IOR two tonner, I believe, from 1982 that had been "crusified" somewhat when we bought her, we added gear, upgraded the galley and interior and did a top to bottom repaint (final version shown here) I know, I know, the dodgers a bit too much, at least visually.

Anyhow the small story is this... one summer I saw a familiar looking boat at a marina, and was trying to place what it was when the owner came by. She looked similar to Phantom, but had a much smaller rig and different deck.

As it turned out she was the final Choate 40 ever made, built by this couple at Dencho's yard in Long Beach. They modified it for ocean cruising, and de-powered the rig for doublehanding. Begun in California, they were transferred to Hawaii so shipped the partial boat there. While there they completed the boat, dug a pit in their carport to pour the keel, completed the hull/deck before moving again, this time to BC. Without the right rig, they cobbled together a temporary rig using a mast from an Ericson 35, IIRC, and sailed her to Victoria. The molds, which Dencho no longer wanted, were used as a shipping cradle on the way to Hawaii, and were shipped to BC, where they remain today, only 50 or so miles from Phantom's current home in Gibsons Landing.

So we compared boats, had a good chat, and we have run into this couple numerous times over the years. After 12 years ownership we sold the boat to friends.

40 hulls were pulled from these molds, most of which had different deck plans and a variety of interiors.
