We bought this boat last year but would like to know the make/model. The title says it was built in 1965 but we have been unable to locate a HIN or other identifying marks.It is 24 ft, full keel, fiberglass, 3 shrouds, forward and aft main stays. It came with a set of sails which had been resown but have an emblem which is a ship's wheel with a W in it but we do not think they are original to the boat. The previous owner told us it was a Westwind made near Seattle but a few months later said it was an Eastwind made on the East Coast. I have been unable to add attachments, site keeps timing out.
It has a fin keel about 3/4 length, the rudder is attached to the keel and the tiller is located forward. It looks similar top side to the Westwind built by Industrial Shipping of Mahone Bay, NS. except for the fin keel. Does anyone know if they made variations of the keel on the Westwind ? On the Eastwind the tiller appears to be in the wrong location and the keel does not appear to be a fin keel and the cabin is more sloped than the Westwind
Well, I only said it was a guess!Actually, after looking up the Alberg 22 after posting my guess, I could tell that is wasn't quite the same. The rudder looks like a Typhoon or Ensign, but it certainly isn't either one of those! You are correct about that transom.My other guess was "SOUTH COAST 23" but that seems to be a copy of the Alberg 22, s othat rules that out (definitely not a Kitiwake either). I thought GREENWICH 24, but the rudder shape doesn't match and that design has a larger transom. OH well! I tried! Quite honestly, she looks like someone took an old Pearson Ensign, modified the stern (from reverse counter to counter) and attached a different deck. If you look at the hull from the rudderpost forward (and ignore the deck?) it sure resembles an Ensign? But.........?
