  1. I think the Builder was known as Citidel. Polar Bear was their last and I think the Owner of the Yacht also ended up also owning the defunct ShipYard. Recessionary times ......... Polar Bear was a much used Yacht on the WestCoast with annual trips between the PNW and Mexico y Costa Rica.
  2. Agreed BP, there are lots of details yet to be filled in. From the launch video, it certainly wasn't a high tide - seems they ran out of ramp before she was afloat. The bow was still teetering on a forward single dolly.
  3. This was my thought too. Absolutely no need for persons aboard during the launch. Put tag lines out to grab from a towboat and take it to the berth. Any guessing on tonnage here? 230+? That dolly system is seriously undersized.

    There's a bit of optical illusion going on there Ajax. The boat was definitely 80ft and the mast was probably about 120ft. Anyone know Condor's mast height ? Ancient memory says 110ish?

    Thanks Larry absolutely great stuff. We would run into and race against Condor later in '83 in Australia. Those big kits were ground up and down, then about 20 minutes of packing down below. Yeah, ...... and wire everything everywhere.
