  1. Almost certain that it is the CHEETAH that he is referring to. Native to, and built in Stone Harbor, NJ. Very rare. I doubt that many or any still exist.
  2. Maybe it's not what you were thing of but but I remember these from when I was 12 years old.

    Nice. Close up of the jib setup if you get a chance. rb

    There is a Ranger 26 (1980) with a fractional rig, dagger/lifting keel, which is extremely rare. (Never even seen a photo of one other than the original brochure which someone sent me.)

    This was actually a Finot design. (Yamaha 29?).

    I was born and raised 45 metres from the yard. Yup know the Standfasts very well but since this is a DC thread will try to keep it short. Peter Vroon/Frans Maas campaigned the (orange) flush deck Standfast 40 in RORC & AC. The nicest Standfast by far IMO was the short cabin top 43 footer of which only 3 were built. Nymphea (blue), Windspiel (red) & Standfast (orange). Windspiel was built for a German owner, Nymphea for the owner my dad bought the Tina off and dad nearly ended up buying that one too. Windspiel became Aquis Granus (still around I think) but the Orange 43 ft Standfast was sold to Ireland where it had a long and successful racing career. Nymphea disappeared into Holland somewhere. I'll get in touch with Frans soon to invite him on here to share his memories re DC . (that is if he wants to, this is SA after all and apart from this thread I can imagine that plenty of people would rather stay away) Yes, but this thread, at least, is SA at it's best! Maybe there should be a separate Frans Mass thread? In any case my guess is that there are others, (besides myself) who have an interest in this topic who will be following.

    Standfast 40 is cute, would you be able to get any plan or drawings of this lovely boat ? Please mail back to personal link Chorus This is from a brochure someone sent me. I may have a higher res version if that helps. I'll have to look. rb

    I don't know. If it's the fastest Class 40 EVER, I could get used to it. I assume that's the leeward rudder sticking out the back.... The rules allow you to sail with just one rudder?

    Coolboats to admire

    A dumb question I'll admit, but I always wonder how these worked., Does the topsail need to go up with the main, or can you raise and lower it independently?

    Yes. An Atalanta 26 from Fairey Marine (or possibly the aft cockpit and extremely rare Tatania) 1950's. Tandem centerboards. Hot molded veneers. I think the molds were built of metal. I don't find them ugly either though not beautiful in a traditional sense. Some were imported to the US by George O'day though I have never seen one here. I have read that many of the Atalantas are still sailing in the UK.
