  1. Thanks! That seems like good advice. I don't think my wife will let me get sucked into continuously buying new gear, so I am trying get a lot of bang for my buck in the first go around. The problem I have is I do not know if any windsurf shops in my part of the world (New Orleans).
  2. I am looking to get into windsurfing. I am a very experienced dinghy sailor (Lasers, Sunfish, past college sailor...) but don't have any real windsurfing experience. What should I look for in a board and sail? I am 180lbs and reasonably fit. I am thinking of buying something used and cheep until I am convinced this is something I will keep doing. I don't know of any windsurfers in New Orleans, so this will probably be watch some videos and learn as I go kind of deal. Any advise would be welcome.

    Is this an I420 or C420?

    It does have the mast. It is a C420 mast, but l am not sure if it is the original.

    Do you have any pics of those boats? This just does not look like any Vanguard 420 I have ever seen. Was it a special design for Brown?

    Thanks for all the replies do far. I am still interested to know the builder. Does anyone have a list of 420 (international or club) builders from the 1970s? The lack of a serial number leads me to believe that it is from the 70s and not 80s. Was Vanguard the only ones making C420s at the time?

    +1Old i420 had the open bow, maybe 20 years ago Did the old i420s not have a traveler? I do not see how a traveler car could ever ride on this one... Does anyone know who the builder of the boat was?

    I am trying to determine if the 420 in the pictures is an international 420 or a club 420. Please help! The boat does not have serial number on the transom or any brand identification that I can see. The mast is not tapered and does not have internal halyards, but I am not 100% sure that it is the original mast. It does not have a traveler either, so my initial thought was that it is an old club 420, but I have never seen a club 420 with the thwart down near where the spinnaker bag is. The thwarts on the centerboard trunk are angled down, which I have also never seen on a club 420. Did the original Vanguard club 420s have these features?
