What is it?

Recommended Posts

The folks at Good Old Boat have this posted and are trying to figure out what it is. I figured this lot would have it pretty quick....

Peterson One Tonner would be my guess.

Tough to tell from that angle.  My guess is some Nordic IOR inspired design because she looks relatively narrow and heavy for an IOR boat with that sort of transom.  Not a full out racer because of swept back rig.  

Can definitely tell you what it's not:

Peterson, Holland, Frers, Farr, Whiting, Davidson, J/N, J/V, N/M, G&S, Jones, Norlin or any top drawer IOR designer I can think of for that matter.

The skeg is just too big and voluminous to be any of the above, except for maybe Jones, but he always had long stern overhangs and usually much beamier.

What  IOR boat had chainplates out on the rail?

None, since you got no credit for running less than a 150% (or 155 I can't remember) headsail.  But few IOR boats had sweptback rigs either, so my guess is the rig was a refit - or is a post IOR, IOR looking boat..

Instead of the question of "what," I would like to know the "how"

How did it end up there, did they salvage the boat, etc?

Look at the abrupt change of the color of the rocks.

The answer you seek is "tidal range".

I think it's an Aphrodite 101

I saw a couple other pics on yachtworld that had the same stern rail config and the line drawings seem to match up the prop shaft and rudder undercarriage.

Also saw the pic in the OP on a danish post from 2015

Oh, come on, we need some juicy details: "skipper tied boat to the shore, went down to the bar, forgot the time... "

Re-configured IOR half tonner, I'd say. 

I'd guess motoring home on autopilot from the regatta on a relaxed day, and skipper and pick-up floozie are engaged in horizontal activities below, leaving a puddle of pleasure on the half ounce runner.

They call it bonking for good reason.

I think Bump has nailed it.  Aphrodite 101

“It” in a game of hide and seek played by yachts when their owners are asleep.

Def IOR- inspired Scandinavian. I think the Aphrodite’s stem is even  slimmer. So maybe an International 10.06? Or Lady Helmsman?

Think Lady Helmsman’s rudder is on a partial sketch, and no skeg in the OP pic...

Only pics I can find of International 10.06 look closer, but I don’t see the prop near the rudder, as OP pic shows...and Aphrodite 101 drawing shows prop near rudder...

Maybe it's there deliberately!

They dangerously bumped into another rock and stuck it there so as not to sink...

Like the Costa Concordia 'tried' to do.

I don't think it's a 101. Bottom of Aphrodite transom isn't as flat, keel chord seems too short and lifelines/stern pulpit are too high.  Perhaps the big sister Bianca 414?

Perhaps.

I was thinking the same thing about the deadrise on the 101 stern.  But the bottom of the 414 stern below looks a bit narrower IMO.  Otherwise I agree.  The skeg/rudder looks about right though.
