When say 'greatdanISH', you mean it's something other than  a GREAT DANE 28?  Looks a lot like one to me:  http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=3625

Correct, originality I thought it was a great dane 28....and I agree that it looks alot like one,

but the cabin lines are softer, and there is a bullwark....on the GD's I have only found toe rails.

here are some pics I found of a great dane that I have used to help form my hypothesis that it isnt a GD 28

I could be wrong.

To clarify what I mean about the bulwark....I cropped some pics....the mystery boat has a nice bulwark with a teak caprail, and the life line stanchions are actually on a raised fiberglass pillar, to reduce leaking I assume. Pretty cool.

on the GD 28 I have only seen a regular teak toerail, and no raised fiberglass pillar.

To me they do look different, but like I said, maybe I'm being to picky on the differences.

I see what you mean. All Great Danes were pretty much the same and there was only one builder. So you're probably right.  Unfortunately I can't think of what else it would be.

The guy with the J-24 next to it said that the current owner has a an IP 38 that he sails, and this boat was his later fathers, and he's never seen it out of the slip....so it doesnt get much use.


I did write a note asking if the owner would e-mail me and let me know what it was, and I slid that in the companionway hatch between the hatchboards....

but who knows how long until someone gets on the boat, and then if they will take the time to e-mail me.

I was really impressed with the boat in person.

This is a bit of a longshot... but could the "mystery" boat be a "WALTON 25"? I found this ad in a December 1963 YACHTING. If not, perhaps there was a larger model from WALTON? Now that I look at the original pictures.....I guess this isn't a Walton 25.... but as I say, maybe they later came out with a larger model?

Thanks. Interesting ad.
I think this is a 'Continental Folkboat', built by Whitby of Canada. (Continental 25)
http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=542 Walton was a Annapolis based broker at the time who branded some of these boats under his own name.   They are somewhat rare, as far as I know. The drawing and photo were submitted by a user.

I am going to go out on a limb and say that I think this is actually a Bianca 27

I think you are on a fairly solid limb.
The forward facing window seems to have nailed it.
