Captian Ron

I've always wanted to know what boat was used in the movie Captian Ron

Accessing Sailnet's powerful .. search engine of course gave me the answer...NOT!

Knowing Hollywood's ability to morph things togather..Im wondering if more then one boat was use for the filming...The cabin has such wonderfully high headroom and the boat does seem to have a lot of windage when view from the outside so Im thinking its possible to be one boat..but the engine room seemed a little excessive for a sail boat..

Whatever it is i want one...for a while anyway

I think it was a Formosa 51, but all the below deck shots were from sets, so no telling how accurate the interior was

1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )

Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't

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.

It is from when the boat was for sale... don't believe it is currently for sale.

Capt Ron was one of my mentors. Capt Wolf Larsen was my other mentor.

You know how well read someone is, when you mention Wolf Larsen and they don't know who he is.

Read "The Sea Wolf" by Jack London, then you will know.
