What is an R 30?

I'd like to sell this sail. I don't know
what it is. Logo is R 30. Has Buchan
brand on it. It's about 35' hoist by
10' foot.

Anybody know what it is?

Most likely Ranger 30, from the late 70s

RANGER 30 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

The logo's not the same as the photo in the link, but the dimensions are pretty close. In any event, really doesn't matter; anyone buying the sail will be looking for a dimensional match regardless of what boat it came from.

Seems likely. Thanks.

I did look at that possibility
a while ago, but the logos
must have changed.

Did Ranger ever use the
R in my picture?

Could be a Rawson 30 also but I don't recall their logo on a sail.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Thanks.

Yeah. I checked into that too, but
the logo is much different. Is there
a repository of logos?

Ranger 30 is my bet, but the R is not quite right. It's the right size though. Rawson 30 maybe but the R was between the 3 and 0 on those, and the luff on the Rawson is shorter.

Where are you? I may know someone who wants it!

Another possibility is that a sailmaker did the best he could for someone who had a Ranger 30. The dimensions look good,the Rawson's E measurement is longer at 14 feet, with a much shorter hoist.

Thanks for that. It really is a repository
for mainsail logos. Nice!

I had also looked at the Rhodes. The R
looked the closest, but the sails didn't
look anything like what I have.

Morro Bay, CA

I'll get a better picture tomorrow at the
park on the lawn. I'll also get better
measurements.

I can see that those logos are not entirely complete. My own boat, Columbia, had a slightly different logo in the early days. Somehow it seems I have seen Rangers with that font of R! I don't think there was a Rhodes 30, was there?
