The link just takes me to Google News. But I did a search on Google and found this:

https://www.bellinghamherald.com/new...212539989.html

The short video shows a raised/flush deck boat. Does anyone know what make/model this boat is? There are three additional pics further down the page that may help in identifying this boat.

I ask because I love this raised deck design.

Thanks!!

It appears to be a mid 60's Cal. They were various lengths, so take your pick. I wonder what a ton or so of lead is worth these days?

If you have the redirects and advertising blocked that will happen.

I copy the link and paste it into something like notepad:


And then strip off the Google Tracking Junk leaving just the link to the article which is everything to the right of "url=":

Cal 25, T/4, and the Cal 2-24 all had flush decks. The T/4 had a transom-hung rudder... the other two head rudder posts and spade rudders.

I can't tell which rudder type this boat has.

Any other ideas?

It appears to be a Newport 27 which was a C&C design built by Capital Yachts.

It is definitely not a Cal.

Jeff, as I kept looking more closely at the lines of this boat, the more it seemed to be different from the flushed decks of the Cal's. Thanks... you got it.

Not sure what the scrap value is, but I pay $4US per pound for it at the scuba shop.
