Yes it appears to be a racing boat and a bad angle to view the hull, but Mr Perry guessed right before, from a pile of wreckage, so I have to up the difficulty level. I'm betting SJB gets it first.

Has a TBird main and transom, but if it's a TBird, they've really modified it. Looks like it's probably Nuda in Comox, since it looks like #54 and they reportedly made a similar change.

Could you get a picture from further away?  Could be a Tempest

Definitely a Thunderbird, nothing like a Tempest.

Yep. If people want to race a TBird it would have to be class legal. If you don't buy a TBird to race, you'd want to cruise....and, well...that wouldn't work so well with this one.

Most of the T-Birds I've seen sailing were just daysailing - that one would do that very well.

 

Of course I never saw a flush deck I didn't like.

We took ours into the San Juans and Gulf Islands. It sailed up Princess Louisa as well. I can't see the logic in modifying a usable TBird like that. Granted, there are no shortage of unusable TBirds in Puget Sound.

Well for one thing, modified that way you can legitimately say "hike you bitches". :D

It's a Dyas

Nope, see post #6. It really is a chopped Tbird. You can see the chine at the transom in the original pic.

I have a friend from Comox coming for dinner tonight. I'll ask him if he knows this boat. Looks like a flush deck T-Bird to me.
