Just for the fun of it . . .

A Dubois 130 by Alloy Yachts in NZ. The one in front is (I think) a Farr1010 (33 ft)!!



If anyone is interested, you can see it here:

Yeah, I know, it's a little out of my league as well

I'll post what I know of these and rely on you to PM me with the important details I'm lacking so I can edit the post later.

A 1973 Cal 21'


A Compac of about 22'


A Columbia of about 25'


An unknown beauty of about 21' ( someone with a HIN list available could help out as I copied this off her transom: ZMVBN 3520877) A tip of the cap to petmac for tracking down the HIN and identifiying the below boat as a McVey designed Bluenose Class Sloop built in Ontario in 1977. 31 years old and lookin' good!





A catboat of around 28' or so.


All photos taken on Gull Lake near Kalamazoo, Michigan.

(PM me with the dope I need to go with the photos!)

Your "unknown beauty" looks like a mini version of an International Dragon. The Dragon is 29 foot, though.




Certainly the same "folkboat" style of long and narrow.

Unknown beauty

Sailaway
Your unknown beauty looks to be a Bluenose Class sloop (23.5') built by McVey Yachts in Nova Scotia in the late 60's/early 70's. Designed by Roue'.

If you look carefully you will see that there is a permanent backstay.

Fair Weather Mariner 39 by Bob Perry, 1986

Fair Weather Mariner 39 by Bob Perry, 1986

This is the boat that Bob Perry designed to be the Westsail 39, but they went belly up after building two bare hulls only. The molds were bought and sent to Taiwan where 43 or 45 (not sure) of these beauties were built. That's why the incised cove stripe sports a "W".
