I had the same thought, but the Lord Nelson is a double-ender, and the house is completely different.

Something by Hardin? It looks similar to a Hardin Sea Wolf.

I'm guessing but 'Lyle Hess' springs to mind. No idea beyond that. Nice looking thing though.

(edit) Faster, we are on the same track but but but....stem doesn't look straight enough for a typical LH design and she looks bigger that any I've seen. Her bum is pure Hess but lots of others have use the classic wine glass.

Definitely BCC-ish, but I've never seen one with rat lines and a hard dodger. That, and it looks bigger than a BCC28

Sticking with Hess. I reckon she's a sister ship (or a slightly larger version of) the Pardey's Talieson (sp?). There were some 32'ers I believe.

Some very astute guesses here. I'll give a hint: Don't forget that Hess's BCC and the Pardey's variants were largely imitations of an earlier designer.

P.S. Don't get hung up on the hard dodger -- that's nonstandard.

Hmm...I thought Hess's BCC's were inspired by the early Pilot Cutters.

Interestingly, the Nor Sea 27 (from earlier in this thread) was also designed by Hess.
