04Marine The post is very late. The boat is an Ingrid 38. If you look at the forepeak hatch that is pretty unique to the Blue Water Boats version and perhaps the Orca 38 version of the ingrid. I have the Bentley version that was laid up in Tiawan and then finished in Southern California. This version has a sloped front to the cabin roof and a raised portion (about 4 inches) at the aft end of the cabin. There is an Ingrid Owners Association on Yahoo.

Just let me know when you arrive....I live in one of those houses in the hill behind the casino...

The Choupana is OK, but I'll take you somewhere else much better, less tourists!! The mandarin I believe closed...not sure..

If you come this way, let me know....

More on the KING YUNE HOU

If you're in Taiwan, you might want to look the owner up--his name and address are:

DASI CITY, 33556

I don't know whether this is the Dasi in Taoyuan County or the small town in Yilan County on the east side!!

Blue Water Boats Inc was located in Woodinville, Washington until bought out in 1979 by Nordic Yachts. From their history: "Blue Water Boats Inc. built a double-ended ocean ketch, of the "Ingrid" design. Its design came from the many beautiful double-ended sailboats in Norway in the nineteenth century. The designer of most of these was Colin Archer, a Norwegian with a Scottish name. The "Ingrid 38" plan was actually modernized in 1934 by William Atkin, and published in Popular Mechanics Magazine for the benefit of boat builders everywhere."

So lets here for the eagle eyes who identified her correctly as either an Archer or Atkins!!!

happypig Gee, Bristol, you're great!!

KING YUNE HOU is in Nan-Liou Harbour, HsinChu, Taiwan since last summer. I had visited the boat once but the boat owner wasn't there, of course. Currently, we don't have much ketch here in Taiwan. That's why I raised my question here.

Thanks again.

P.S. sorry about the blog where I put the photo, it's in Chinese.

tdw Coach roof doesn't quite work for either the Atkins or the Alejuela but the similarity is very close nonetheless. Here's a link to some info on the Alejuela. Of course the coachroof and cockpit combing could well have been modified. The only Bluewater Boats I could find (well google could find at least) are makers of aluminium fishing boats in the US and a mob making canal barges in the UK.

Cruisingdad Ahh, just kidding around with you Bristol. Nothing intentional... hope you know that?

Bristol324DD Gee, "happypig" asked who the maker of the boat in the picture was--the answer is Blue Water Boats, Inc. Why the ridicule?

Cruisingdad I think Bristol works for the CIA. Note to self: Be nice to Bristol. Be nice to Bristol. Be nice to Bristol.

Ahhh... I think I can remember.

PS Giu, you are on thin ice so watch out what you say around Bristol. You are entering US waters soon, you know. I have already alerted them.
