2 different boat isignia's

Over the weekend while working on Crane island in the san juans, I saw two boats I am would like to figure out what they were.

One was a daysailer, 40'ish feet in size I would say. Looked to be on par with a 12M AC boat of yore. But had a C with a line thru it, typical "Cent" C with a line. Sail number was 19. This might help those that live in the san juans. Appeared to be wood hulled, but using the 5x binocs availible at the time, did not help me get much else on it.

The other, also about 40'ish feet in size, but a crusier style with an S with a B on the lower right of the S. The lettering was what I would call a block-cursive in nature. Seemed newer in age, SWAG less than 10 yrs, altho could be very well kept up too.

Where I am working at, is a main channel thru the SJ's, including the WSFerries too. So lots of boats coming and going of all shapes and sizes.

Thanks for any info
Marty

I don't know about the first one, but the second one sounds like a Shannon. There is a pretty cool graphics list of sail insignias on a site called msogphotosite. I can't post links, but do a search for "mainsail insignia guide msogphotosite" and you should be able to pull up a link to the pdf from the site.

I didn't see anything that looked like a "cent" sign on the list, but maybe one of them will jump out at you.

Hope this helps.

I'm waiting for the insignia PDF to load. The SB "IS" Shannon yachts, I was able to verify that looking at the shannon yacht pages in F.Mates worlds best boats, vol II? one or the other.

Not sure about the cent sign as of yet. It is more a daysailer like the americas cup 12M style boats. I suppose possibly a smaller version such as an 8 or 10M, but thought these had a number insignia.

Ah the search goes on!

Could that "cent sign" logo be an International One Design (from msogphotosite p. 12)?

Hesper,

Good call. Altho I do not remember seeing the horizontal lines that appear to make up the I in the middle..........now to look up that boat and see. Could very well be it. Any one know if this is a roughly mid 30 to 40'ish foot daysailer style boat? like a midget 12M AC boat.

Marty

It took a bit, but did find some pics and specs, the IOD appears to fit the bill for the sail with the "cent" on it for lack of better term.

Not sure which Shannon I saw, don't care on that too much, just had not seen that insignia, nor had I seen the other.

Thanks all
Marty
