America 16

I have an America 16 (or perhaps American 16). It's 16 ' loan with a knuckle bow, wing keep & and a spade rudder. I can find NO documentation on this boat at all. Anybody know anything abt this boat? I got this one in the Phila area although it may have come from the upper Chesapeake Bay.
Any information would be helpful.
Thanks, Dave Cannell

Re: America 16

There was no American 16 under American Sail who has been in business since 1972 however prior to that the boats were made by American Fiberglass and they had a 16 that looked like a O'Day DaySailor.

There was an America 17 with a Wing Keel that was a scaled down Americas Cup Racer built by America Yacht Inc. that was located in Clearwater FL however few of those were built and the company went under as far as I understand.
