      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

I have heard conflicting statements that this boat (Fair Lady / Fiere Lady) went on to become MOONRAKER....?

 

Any info?

 

Lettering and paint looks the same in this brochure...

 

"Fair Lady" and "Fiere Lady" are two different boats -built some time apart - out of the same mould and with the same core crew.

 

See PDF in Skew's post above.

 

Incidentally Bnto racing boats with names including "Lady" reflected a "works" boat, Lady standing as a tribute to Bnto president Mrs Roux.

Whoops... My mistake. I misread the above attachment....

 

The text in the attachment makes reference to the 84 One Ton Cup - not AC. It mentions that there was 2 boats named Fair Lady and Faire Lady. Both Beneteau IOR One Tons. Also mentions that there were 2 more boats, both named Coyote?!?! And both of these were also Beneteau IOR One Tons.

 

Does any of our European buddies know the details or the histories of these? I guess my understanding at this point is that there are two 1984 versions and two 1985 versions. One of each are still in Europe and one of each were sent to North America. Anyone know what the differences are and which were sent over to NA?? Also if names were changed, too what??

 

I love to hear the history of these boat, and I am sure you can guess why....

 

Also FYI - one of these are for sail in the SA classifieds (Godspeed) for a pretty reasonable price!

Larry -

 

Any chance you have any photos of Wizard the Peterson 2ton in her original blue and gold paint? The boat was built at Palmer Johnson in 1976 for Dr. Lou Kagen of Milwaukee and later (around 1980) becase Siren Song in Chicago.

 

Thanks for all the great memories.

Great shot. But, easy steady, I know he has defrauded a lot of people, but let's not kill Bondy off so quickly. Last time I looked, he was alive and well and still out there scamming.

I have this photo shown to me by a member of the Australia II syndicate.

Sorry, but I cannot recall his name. He was middle-aged and had sandy, curly hair,

though perhaps less than when younger.

 

Does anybody know the name of this man?

I wish now that I had photographed every one on their team. Sheesh.

 

I believe the drawing was from a patent application for the concept of a winged keel.

Silver Apple of the Moon did actually change colour for a while to a deep red, and was renamed Rebel County, even though still owned by the original family (Clayton Love and family?). Not sure when she reverted? A later owner?

Silver Apple Of The Moon and Golden Apple Of The Sun are two of my favorite boatnames-

 

The Song of Wandering Aengus

 

 

I went out to the hazel wood,

 

Because a fire was in my head,

 

And cut and peeled a hazel wand,

 

And hooked a berry to a thread;

 

And when white moths were on the wing,

 

And moth-like stars were flickering out,

 

I dropped the berry in a stream

 

And caught a little silver trout.

 

 

When I had laid it on the floor

 

I went to blow the fire aflame,

 

But something rustled on the floor,

 

And some one called me by my name:

 

It had become a glimmering girl

 

With apple blossom in her hair

 

Who called me by my name and ran

 

And faded through the brightening air.

 

 

Though I am old with wandering

 

Through hollow lands and hilly lands,

 

I will find out where she has gone,

 

And kiss her lips and take her hands;

 

And walk among long dappled grass,

 

And pluck till time and times are done

 

The silver apples of the moon,

 

The golden apples of the sun.

 

 

William Butler Yeats

I'm not sure if I'm ever going to fall in love with the asses of any of these boats, but the creativity of the color schemes (and Larry's ability to capture them) helps me appreciate the IOR days a whole lot more. Most boats today are just boring in comparison.

 

Thanks Larry.

:lol: How on earth would a ConCup boat find its way to Malta??

 

Maybe Fracesco Bruni bought one for practice?

But the Royal Malta Yacht Club on the transom confuses the issue somewhat.

 

There was a 37 on the East Coast (of the US) - Western Long Island Sound - Manhasset Bay to be exact. It was sold about three years ago. Last I heard I thought it was going to England, but could have ended up anywhere. It had a bigger rig than the con cup boats and was sailed in PHRF for a while. Not a good boat for anything other than match racing.

I just took a closer look at this, it really is a Cat. 37. The giveaway is the forward hatch on the starboard side, the fleet was built that way for starboard roundings. The winches are also distinctive in their layout, by ConCup rules you have to go through a turning block aft of the track (obscured in this shot) and not directly to the large wind forward, so the layout is the same, the small winches behind the track were for the spinnaker sheet. The checkstays and those winches are add-ons. Also, the pit is very distinctive, I did pit for Dean Barker one year and the whole setup is exactly as I remember it.

Just checked my digital library and note that I have an earlier photo of the same yacht dated 24th June 2006, so this yacht has been in Malta for over 5 years. I thought that only 11 Catalina 37s were built and 10 are retained for the Con Cup?

Have just done a google search for "Moondancer RMYC" and it seems the yacht is still winning races in Malta as of 2nd September 2011 and is called a Catalina Capri 37.

Years ago there was a Catalina Capri 37 sailing out of Detroit. The rig and pole were bumped. The owner was Ken Dibner, a great guy. I sail a little on the boat but I cannot remember its name.

Dreamcatcher was sold to a new owner in Manhasset Bay and was re-named Arcturus and was upgraded. I spoke with the owner last night and the boat was subsequently sold two years ago to a new owner in Lithuania. Arcturus sailed PHRF for a while. Her owner tried to ascertain how many 37's were built and he said he never got a straight answer to that question.

With several boats nearing the finish line, the boat in the center, nearest the camera, was Moonraker (35119). Her owner was Nils Muench. DYC. This was not a Mac race.

I don't recall Moonraker's designer or length.

 

 

Picture1-35.png

.

I do believe this is from the One Tons held by Columbia Yacht Club July 1987. I think the boat in the lead is another Beneteau owned by Al Henning (R.I.P) named Poltergeist. His spinakers where always white with just a little red at the shoulders. I did enough time looking up at them whilst trimming them.

Indeed this is the '87 NA's. I think the lead boat w/red shouldered kite is Amazing Potato owned by Peggy & Lyn Comfort (the transom is J/N-ish). Also the Spuds had UK sails while the Geese had Sobstadts until the boat was purchased by Robin who then went w/UK.

 

Any other pics of the potato? Peg and Lyn were a blast to sail with. I joined the crew for a few regattas shortly after the NAs and did some bow and downwind driving. Lot's of fun.

I think it was more of a "let's use a dinghy sailor to drive downwind", but for a 19 year old kid it was both exhilarating and nerve racking, especially when you have the tactician screaming "No overlap! Shut the door on that f#$%, jam him up into the mark!" and your driving somebody else's very expensive toy.

This brings back some old, frightening memories. I was on her last ride.

Is John Miller still around?

AKA previously and now "Joli". If I am looking at the pic correctly it looks like it had the previous/older rig in it too.

I helped deliver Triumph from Florida to Detroit in the spring of '83 and I think the new rig went up after the Mac races, so yes that is likely the old rig (new rig had 3 sets of spreaders?) I saw the new version "Joli" at Bayview a year or so ago. What a great restoration and nice to see these old girls treated well.

Thanks for the kind words Skew. As you mentioned; the newer rig is a triple spreader built by Offshore and is 9 foot taller then the one pictured in Larry's photo.

As far as Onetonners are concerned, see this picture of J-41 Oneton Red Gull (ex Road Warrior, John Kolius 1984) and J/V-Oneton ex-container (Container, Udo Schütz, 1987 German Admirals Cup Team)racing on the Ijsselmeer/Netherlands two weeks ago.

Fair Lady. 1987 NA One-Ton Championships, Chicago.

 

Does anybody here have more information?

Good God, that's dredging up some ancient history--did time on Road Warrior, then Lorimar in the late 80's. I am beginning to feel like an old shit.

I remember one morning of the BYC Mack start watching Brian Keith and co trying to patch up a hole in the bow of Lorimar--some chick in a small Sea Ray or some such was backing up and put the out-drive unit into her...

We found evidence of that hole when we restored the boat here in the Netherlands two years ago, it was just tape applied to the hull and faired over on both sides, really weird. Today she looks like this.

As far as I know "Road Warrior" always carried the masthead rig as do most of the other J-41s. As mentioned earlier in this thread there seem to be only one fractional rigged J-41 called "Alathea", later "Aja", which was reported to be a little slower than the mastheads. Here´s another shot

Really nice shot !!
