Seeking Uwhilna

Howdy everybody! I figure if there is any way to locate a boat, this is the place.
The boat that I am looking for is the 51 ft. Charles Mower design yawl Uwhilna. My parents bought this boat back in the early 70's then sold it around 84'.
Having gotten into sailing over the past few years, I though it would be fun to try and track down the boat that I was conceived on. The only little tidbit of info that I have heard is that it was in New Zealand for a while.
Have you seen her?
Cheers!

My Grandfather designed her. I am glad you have happy memories of her. I never was on any of his sailing boat designs. Hopefully, you can track her down.

Uwhilna

I am thrilled you had happy memories of her and would like to locate her. Hopefully, you will be able to find her and have fair winds on her.
My grandfather designed her.

Mower was a great designer, the Seabird yawls are world famous.

Beautiful. It's a great thing to preserve a classic.

Heading to Vancouver? Awsome, I live just South of Vancouver so when you get here I'll sail up and we can meet up! I'm sure my folks would also love to see her again. Boat looks great by the way.
