Such sad news to have stumbled upon today. I have relied on SBD over the last few years that I have been exposed to it. I have always marvelled at the constant growth of SBD.  The scope of the information always boggled my mind and the idea of SBD has been an inspiration. As  sometime boat builder, renovator, restorer and full time boat design nut, I have spent countless hours cross referencing designs and builders and SBD has been my main source of research and daydreaming. I have never tired of passing on a link to my friends and the uninitiated. Thank you Randy and may your memory sail on. Mark Warburton, s/v Hoopoe III, Spindrift/Formosa 46, Sai Kung, Hong Kong.

Stuart Randall “Randy” Browning, age 66, of Norwalk, CT, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, January 18, 2018 after a courageous struggle with ALS.

The founder and creator of SAILBOATDATA.COM, Randy was also a skilled sailmaker who worked in several top lofts including Horizon Sails and Ulmer-Kolius before opening his own Sono Sails in South Norwalk. He was a master sailor who competed nationally and was well known in the Long Island Sound sailboat racing community. Randy’s love of sailing was contagious and he welcomed those with all levels of experience to sail with him and his fellow Voidoids upon their Judel/Vrolijk designed sloop Voidoid V. As a crew mate said, he was happiest when sailing, and happiest sailing when sailing fast. Like many sailmakers, he was a tireless and exacting sail-trimmer.

Generous, kind, witty, and loved by friends and family, Randy enjoyed lively discussions that allowed him to share his deep knowledge of boating, music, history, literature and politics. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his dear partner Elizabeth Hiden, mother Helen Ann Browning, sister Amy Browning Emmert, brother Peter Browning, niece Hannah Browning Emmert, nephew Matthew Browning and many cousins. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Randy’s honor to: The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter at webct.alsa.org or The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter, 4 Oxford Road - Unit E4 - Milford, CT 06460 or by contributing to the Sea Scouts at http://norwalkship6.org/Ship6Support.html.

A celebration of Randy’s life will take place this summer. Please watch for the date to be posted on Sailboatdata.com and the Sailboatdata.com Facebook page.

Fair winds and following seas Randy.

Notes indicate: "Rig has higher aspect ratio. (possibly for more favorable IOR rating?)"
As I understand it the rig was changed at least in part it fix a moderate weather helm problem, shorter boom and higher mast moved the center of effort forward.  Improved the PHRF rating too.

I am wondering why there is a difference between the 1 and 2 Sail Area/Disp the second one is in the rigging section and the first one is in the first section. I tried to search but did not find anything related. On some boats there is little difference on others it is quite significant.

The USCG Required 12-digit Hull ID Numbers were required starting on 01 November 1972. The HIN should be molded into the outside of the hull near the upper edge of the transom, towards the Starboard side, or on the Starboard side near the gunwale, and within 6" of the stern. Yankee may have used a metal plate for the HIN which may have fallen off before you bought the boat. They are supposed to be permanent, but who knows? Some builders were a bit off on locating the HIN marking, my O'DAY DS II has it dead-center on the transom, a friend had a CAL 21 with the number located about midway between the gunwale and bottom of  transom, and offset about 3-6" to starboard of the centerline.

Did anyone ever determine what this boat is??
I ask because there is someone looking to identify what appears to be a sistership on the "Pocket Yachts and small cruisers" Facebook page. So, now we at least know there might be at least 2 of these boats around.

I keep searching for any info elsewhere.

I have wondered about that myself but it can't be it's LOA in feet.

http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=3452

The data displayed indicates the boat is 31.33'LOA which does not seem right for a 40' boat  Other reference say is as a 32' boat so the length seems to be right.  What does the 40 refer to?

The info I'm getting indicates there were 2 Malo 40's in the 1970's, the regular and the H models.  The only difference was the H model had 59m^2 sail area instead of 44m^2.
