To me, the Lone Star looks sleeker than the boat in question. Longer anyway. It doesn't have the hatch in the transom. That might just be how the pictures are framed though.

It may be a hole in the water, but it's mine.

It was the closest hull match I could find with limited searching. At least it has the shear water or splash guard on the deck. I still think it might be a Chrysler hull. The 'Dagger' was another variety of Chrysler's boat works of similar size while they were still making boats.
How is your T27 coming along? We splash in on 4/10. Yikes!

I don't believe it is a Chrysler Dagger sail, as you can see the Chrysler Dagger sail mark spells out the word "Dagger" in the outline of a knife, but the marking on my sail has no embedded letters. Also, the sail on the Chrysler Dagger picture does not have a sleeve which slides over the mast.

The Chrysler Lone Star looks closer to my hull, but the deck is substantially different from the pic I am posting here.

Man-o-war, apparently, not a Dagger

I just bought a boat that was listed as a dagger, also, and then when I read the manual started to wonder about it. Found this thread (2 years later) and kept digging. I found this link: Chrysler Man O War sailboat for sale, which shows the exact lines of the one I bought.

Maybe it helps the next person who searches for this.

Good sailing!
