Can anyone identify this boat?

Sorry for starting yet another thread like this...

This boat is advertised as being a "24' 1969 Contest Sturgeon Class" sloop, but I've not been able to find any such boat, and all the similar Contests are 25' and have fin keels. The interior layout is also different from the Contests of that era. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Will

The only stats I have are the length - 24'. She's about 8' in beam and probably draws 4' or maybe 3 1/2.

The keel is not the right shape for a folkboat - it's flat on the bottom and doesn't go far enough forward (though it goes a bit farther forward than the picture indicates).

The mast, spreaders and boom are wood, with boom furling.

check on The Plastic Classic Forum • Index page. Very knowledgable group over there about older boats...not to take anything away from sailnet guys....classics seem to be their specialty.

Thanks. I wasn't able to find anything I didn't have to pay for - or am I missing something? I saw a seemingly abandoned Flicka in Philadelphia, which I wanted to look up, since the marina wouldn't respond to my inquiry.

I've also found a Cheoy Lee 27 at a very good price that needs a lot less work, but this Sturgeon has still caught my fancy for some reason. I'd like someone to nudge me one way or the other, I guess, but perhaps Irene will make that decision for me.
