I swore I would not buy a boat...but this sweet little sailing dinghy called to me today. Don't know how correct the info I've rcv'd, but the guys an old salt, and seems very knowledgeable, but looking for info has been at odds with our 'reality....so here goes.It's a Penguin Racing Dinghy, 11 ft. long transom to bow. All wood, wood mast, wood oars, 3 sails, 2 cotton and one dacron, complete down to original oarlocks. Bow badge looks quite old and lists Skaneatles as the builder, nothing really wrong other than a bit of sanding and varnishing needed. He mentioned something along the lines of 'designed by one of the Herreshoff clan...but unsure...even had the rigging detail sheets. Will try to post a picture .....any information would be greatly appreciated..

They were designed by Rhodes.  A class association still exists and they still race them on the east coast USA.

I don't think these ever had a class association with class rules etc.   did they?

Hi

The founder of Nautor Mr. Pekka Koskenkylš manufactured three 40m sloops in early nineties but they are not mentioned on your database. There were three GRP mouded hulls made with different interiors designed by Pekka Koskenkylš himself. Here a couple of links:

I was calling it the Concorde 151. But this is good. I'll add some of this other information. I think they were designed by Farr.

Thank you. You are undoubtedly right about the spinnaker. Not so sure that this is a brochure photo since I've seen no evidence that Pearson ever offered an inner forestay of any sort on the 10M. Probably will never know for sure. In any case, I'll get with my rigger.  EAP

It's not an inner forestay.   just a free flying jib attached to the jib halyard with the tack attached to something on deck aft of the normal jib tack position.  I seriously doubt you ever want to have a inner stay from which you would hoist another sail. on this particular bout. The foretriangle looks too tall and skinny. 
A 'baby stay', maybe which would have an entirely different function.
