According to WoodenBoat forum, she is a seven meter class sloop that was on a mooring on Martha's Vineyard as of 2007.

What I did notice in the movie were the self-tailing winches... Tough to future proof a boat.

Hinky? Hinckley you mean?

Smackdaddy, thanks for the mild +1 !

Jeff H, would you rather me PM you my next guess what's your guess by the way, monday morning quarterback ??

I saw about 10mins of the movie, and while preemptive "boatshopping" saw a boat with a sexy back end and whipped my thoughts up on this board while enjoying more than one homebrew...

BTW, if you had actually read Jeff_H's response, he clearly stated what the boat in the movie was... I seriously doubt it was a guess on his part given his fairly encyclopedic knowledge of boats... from Jeff_H's post:

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.

Not surprising. The thread is 2.5 years old.

Fun read though.
