Best way to find a boat owner? (Poulsbo, WA)

So I was wandering through the docks in Poulsbo Washington, and saw this absolutely beautiful wooden boat. It looked to be around 50 feet (I'm suspicious it's a 51 Formosa according to my online research). It was named Earendil, out of Portland OR. I took a few photos (linked a few below) because I thought it looked awfully beautiful.

Not that I have a lot to say, but I'd just love to hear more about the boat, where it came from, where it has been, how it handles, etc. Simply a "Wow, you have a beautiful boat, tell me more!".

Anyway, I've seen gorgeous boats before, and wanted to know more. Anyone know a good (polite) way to find the owner?

I leave a note on the boat (in a zip lock bag) with my contact info. and ask them to call if they wouldn't mind telling me about their boat.
It's about 50/50 if they call.
