The Visual Boat Identification Thread

Hi All,

It dawned on me that we have a lot of questions like this:

Quote:
"what boat is this?"
So, I propose a photo based thread displaying various boats and their model/size.

Please, only add to this thread if you have the boat brand/model/size and a photo so we can keep it on topic as this could be a LONG thread.

1979 Canadian Sailcraft 36T:

Bob Perry Designed Passport 50:

nolatom will become famous soon enough
Wow. Some great beautiful classic sailboats above.

Why didn't you make me guess? I'd have missed a couple.

But of those I did see,

The Bridges Point 24 is just gorgeous, what a beautiful daysailor, never heard of it before, almost looks like one of the Herreshoff family designs.

That bright-finish Concordia yawl? What a knockout. Kill me now, and put me in Heaven with one of those, and some water.

Almost ditto with the Hinckley B-40 Mark III.

And last but not least, the Tripp-38 almost reminds me of the Bounty, one of the earliest successful fiberglass designs.

I appreciate the more modern designs, and enjoy their speed, but these classics are just beautiful, and still sail really nice, no matter who your crew is.

Boat behind CAPE Dory 27

Can someone explain the rig. Forestay looks fractional. Thats OK but looks like double backstays and the boom legnth is past the chain plate attachments. How is the boom rigged for DDw? Also the backstays attach at same point as forestay, so I guess it's not a fractional rig. But it's not a masthead either.

Those are "running backstays" with tackle at the deck level to adjust tension. They are positioned in a way that allows direct tensioning of the headstay. The leeward runner is relaxed and eased to avoid interfering with the main/boom. They must be swapped on every tack/gybe.

What is a bit unusual is that there doesn't appear to be a permanent masthead backstay, but presumably that setup is able to be self supporting above the hounds.

Beautiful pics, btw, Hal and Petmac.

Faster

I can see the running backstay part, would think the main could not be hoisted higher than where the stays attach. Is it possible it's a gaff rig? Looks like sails off & just cover on bare boom. Gaff rig woul explain xtra 5 feet of very solid looking mast.

Concordia

Nolatom,
The bright finished Concordia is indeed beautiful. She belongs to a friend of mine from Salem. Here's a shot of her leaving my guest mooring a couple of summers ago.

RX, the main sail does go up past the attachment height of the running backstays. As Faster correctly states

---They are positioned in a way that allows direct tensioning of the headstay. The leeward runner is relaxed and eased to avoid interfering with the main/boom. They must be swapped on every tack/gybe---

If one forgets to relax the soon to be leeward runner it makes for a really ugly sail shape after a tack...don't ask how I might know I race on a friend's Kirby 25 that has them.
