Looking for Boat

I am trying to track down the boat my family owned when I was growing up. Unfortunately, I have very little information as my father is dead and my mother doesn't remember much.

We lived in Darien, Connecticut and kept the boat at Rowayton Yacht Club. I believe my father sold her out of Yacht Haven in Stamford, Connecticut, in
1971. We bought her in 1965 and she was new.

She is an Allied Seawind Ketch, 30', and her name at the time was Jezebel.

I am anxious to find her and if anyone has any information or suggestons about how I could go about locating her, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.

I love an excuse to do "internet detective" work!

The following link should bring you to a list of ASW30 owners that was compiled several years ago. If you scroll to the bottom of the list, you'll see a link in the left corner for the second page. They are a little tough to read (scanned jpegs), but if you download them and view them with a picture viewing app you can zoom in pretty far. I didn't see "Jezebel" on the list, but perhaps she's there under a subsequent name.

Untitled Document

There's another page on this site that contains a list that contains a partial list of hulls with hull #s and mfgr year:

Seawind 1 Owner's List

If you look at the ones that have both hull # and year listed, you can infer that 1965 production started around hull #65 and 1968 finished around #115. This jives with my boat, which is a 1968 (hull #105). That would work out to about 12 - 15 hulls per year, or 1965 production from approx. #65 to #80. Now you can go back to the "owners roster" pages I cited above and check out those boats. I'm sure the list is very out of date though. As an example, my boat is listed there and the owners on the roster are the ones that sold her to the owner before me (sometime in the early 90's I believe).

Good luck with the search!
