It was an odd time the late IOR period. Fantastic fleets, great racing and many beautiful looking boats that were absolute cunts of things to sail. Back them most  owners actually knew how to sail and

Having renovated an IOR 1-tonner, I feel obliged to point out that there are way cheaper ways to get a tidy boat on to a start line

Big Wheels,  yep.  I sailed an 80 foot Maxi that had a pump on the wheel well because it went below the waterline! Lots of winches,  why no cleats or jammers,  none had been developed capable of

A beauty!

Good that it is no balsa core: "Nomex Honeycomb core with no bales core"

That's a nice looking, pretty sure to be a good sailing, boat

Doesn't look like a big project.

Somebody, get this!

"My sail boat" May be DASH 34 designed by Laurie Davidson: "First planned for class racing as no attempt was made to cater to any handicap rule"

Kan vara en bild av jordens vatten

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/boa/d/seattle-my-sail-boat/7292596596.html?lang=en&cc=gb

May be this design: https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/dash-34?fbclid=IwAR2JBq_vyDxsg10uBS6ac_Gu5Dx2xJdbVSrjDG3KQclug4XyD1GIP-h1KPk

When I first looked at this yacht it was something familiar about her. I then got help to identify her and I edited the post including the designers name Laurie Davidson. Not the stern, but much of the rest I believe bears resemblance to Pendragon:

Get that non-IOR thing out of here!

I just thought it was fun with a yacht by Laurie Davidson, that resembled Pendragon. For sure, no IOR. Sometimes one figure about production versions of famous IOR yachts. This can be it. Perhaps she is an unbumped, no speedbump version? If it is important to remove her, please do so.

Not very similar to Pendragon other than being similar size and same designer.  I have a Dash so quite familiar with them.  Dash has less beam (10 ft), a fair amount of topside flare and is all waterline with minimal overhangs compared with the long stern overhang of Pendragon.

The Dash 34 was derived from Davidson's Wednesday Night Racer which were built in NZ.  The Dash have a frac rig vs the MH rig of the WNR and taller cabin.

Locally, the Dash looks most similar to the Davidson 40 Teddy Bear, which also had a MH rig, better interior and 6 ft longer than the Dash.  A lot of local Dash 34s have been turboed to varying degrees of success.  The most successful being Absolute Kaos which rates in the neighbourhood of the FT10 and Farr 30

Teddy Bear and AK below for comparison.

Geez 12, I like!  Teddy Bear is one sweet looking ride, I always wondered what a "normalized" Dash would look like.  The cutout-less transom looks nice, the classic window profile masks the tall and highly crowned cabin, and I bet there's other details I've missed.  What's the story on TB, from the few pics she looks like she's had some lovin'?

Cheers!

Haven't seen Teddy Bear in a while, but I'm pretty certain she is still around.  Here's a link to an old SA thread from 2005 about LD (sounds like LD was retiring at the time, although don't know if he actually retired) that indicates one of his last jobs was a new bulb keel for Teddy Bear:

Not sure if there are any truly stock Dash 34s around (at a minimum all have had the OMC "saildrives" with either an OB or a few have IB diesels.  The stock transom had rebates for horseshoe life rings, which is useless these days and tend to detract from the aesthetics.  There is one Dash I can think of without the rebates - Final Dash, which was home built using the Dash molds IIRC and it looks a lot better IMO. Getting rid of those is one of the many incomplete projects on my Dash.

Edit:

Just remembered Hurricane doesn't have the rebates (cutouts) either and I found a couple of stern on photos of her.  Still has an OB ruining the aesthetics though:(.

Teddy Bear is still around, although the last couple of years at WIRW they have raced in the cruising class rather than Div 1.

I remember racing against her at WIRW back in the late '80's.  She still looks pretty darn good for a boat that has been used extensively for such a long time.

As for the Dash 34, I remember racing against Balderdash (again in the late '80's) in Victoria.  She really was the antithesis of the IOR influenced boats of the time.  Very lightly built, and light overall, with a hullform drawn for speed and performance, not to a rule. And with a ridiculously almost square aspect kite. Pretty cool boats.  I thought the transom cut-outs were cool.  Didn't they also have the built-in tube for the MOB pole?  Sure, the cut-outs are useless in Canada as the horseshoe rings are not certified devices, but cool anyways.  (Kind of like the (Beneteau?) 1 tonner that had horseshoe cut-outs in the deck right where the helmsman sat so they doubled as seat cushions.)

Just noticed the other boat in this photo is also an LD design.  A Davidson 29.  Only two of the 29s were ever built - there's a story behind that.  But the 29 is my favourite all time design.  Fast in most conditions but a monster in light air.    A bit faster than a J/29 but with an actual cruising interior AND 6'2" headroom.

Still kicking myself for not picking up either one when they were for sale in the past.  But the timing wasn't right - and timing is everything.

Add Jumpin Jack Flash to the unbumped list from LD.  Pretty boat I wonder where she is now.

I could have easily removed them, and the boat does look better without them, but I left my rebates there because of PHRF.  Make a few changes that might be construed as trying to make the boat faster and boom - suddenly you are an x-boat and your rating will be based on AK's, not the base rating.  Leaving the boat as stock as possible is the right strategy for these boats.  Or, go all the way and turbo everything.

I emailed back and forth with Kevin Dibley about Teddy Bear a couple of months ago.  He said Teddy Bear was the first of the Davidson 42's, build by Lloyd Stevenson for his own personal yacht but sold prior to launch.  There were a few other 42s namely Mr. Roosevelt, Eleanor, Spitfire.

Used to be owned by the Lidgard sailmaker in Anacortes, don't know if he is still the owner

Jumpin Jack Flash is in Marblehead.  I know the guy who owns her.  Sailed her from the west coast through the canal.  Has some great stories including adventures in Cuba.

Did Gerry Henson (Kelly O'Neil Henson's husband) own Teddy Bear at some point?  I know he was deeply involved in the program, but don't remember if he was an owner or not.

Two 3/4 ton  Mini Ton in middle. 

 I sold the Mystic Mini Ton when I got married in '83, sailed it once. Years later heard it had been beached during an 80's hurricane and was at the Bend Boat Basin being used as beer bottle target practice. We grabbed it during a 4 hour break and brought it back to the shop in Norwich Ct before it was crushed. "Hondo" reaction: Get that Boat Company piece of shit out of here! I miss my buddy John, and his alter ego Hondo

 The 3/4 Ton on right was a shop boat built over a client's plug, sister delivered to Annapolis, Rascal

 The 3/4 with hull damage was built in 6 weeks in Noank Ct for Worlds in Newport for Noank Shipyard owner. Did not do as expected. The hull repair was extensive and involved inner outside skins and core sequentially removed around structure inside. The guy who did the work did an amazing job. Nomex core was not used in the repair. Built as Diamond Noir, named Menace in the photo. 

 The other boats, two Ultimate 30's designed by Diamond Noir guy. Picture of the guy who repaired Menace in company truck. So many tales to tell

 After the First Ultimate 30 event in Corpus Christi the shop floundered and started selling everything, including the shop 3/4 Ton. The buyer's first true race boat and probably smallest of many. He had a pretty nice modified C&C 39. The 3/4 Ton's new name Idler 

 The boat burned in an electrical fire at Noank shipyard and did not sail, ironically the same building Diamond Noir was built in 

 Hope that's enough to know who designed the 3 boats (BK, BN/BM, BN/J)

The framing and stringers do not fit the age of the boat. Modern coldmolded kauri techniques from the era needn't have gone that way. Must have been a choice from an older boat builder or the original commissioner of the vessel.

Too bad as she could have done a stylish, sexy cabin and improved the look of her shear. That would have made a big difference on an old boat she put so much work, blood and soul into.

Magic Bus for one - which was a boat most young guys drooled over BITD.

Smackwater Jack after the repaint to something more similar to MB.

And the wooden Meiga XVI which is likely a later Whiting because most of the creases and folds are absent.

As for the cabin, those big boxy cabins were a common thing on Kiwi Racer/Cruisers.  I guess they followed the Bauhaus principle of "form follows function" in that it allowed for more interior volume.  Davidson and Farr had not too dissimilar cabin tops.  The last photo is a Davidson 28.

Where is she and needs she restoration? OOH NO: "The Peterson Half Ton fractional daggerboarder OOH NO won the North Americans the year Waverider won the Worlds the first time.

I had one of those for a short time as a trade in. When racing it we did okay with the boat no time figure it out or dialed up. In our area we found 22' is too small for most. That's why the Wildy 21 never got traction here.

That is Scorpion.

The topic of a thread here maybe a year ago or so.  Sat for sale for a few years it seems and some young guy bought it for next to nothing I suspect.

He had some interesting adventures in it on the short few months he had it.  I believe it was abandoned off the California coast in a storm.  There were some photos of he and his crew with the CG helicopter team.

There was one or two more threads - one where he wants to give the boat away for free and maybe another about the CG rescue.

Anyone know her eventual fate?  Washed up on shore, sunk, or carried off by currents?

The original thread:

Two others were called "dealing with uncooperative crew" and "tips for being rescued"

Still not sure if the poster was a delusional/self-destructive/tortured soul, or a master troll.  Maybe both.  Either way, it ended up being a waste of a perfectly nice boat.

That's the old "Trix" IIRC.  It was a force in SoCal level-racing back in the day, it was on the hard up here (Everett, WA) for several years while the owner cruise-ified it, and haven't seen it since it splashed about 5 years ago.  Hopefully the owner is off to blue-water adventures and has as much cruising success as the "Wings" people have had with their Serendipity-43

Fifteen?  GOD, has it been Twenty years she's been sitting there? I doubt she ever sails, but she's not quite landfill yet. She's still floating and still has a rig.

She'd be toast by now.

At least they've got the wheel covers on.

Add Jumpin Jack Flash to the unbumped list from LD.  Pretty boat I wonder where she is now.

Jumpin' Jack Flash - Davidson 50 - Sailing Anarchy - Sailing Anarchy Forums

82 clipper cup photo I think...

Another cool LD design.  But, it’s it IOR or MORC?

Did Whiting design any good looking boats?

Offhand I can't recall one.

Tequila, 42'.  She didn't have the doger when I sailed on her back in the 70's.  There was a later production GRP version called the Reactor 45.  I aslo liked Magic Bus, Newspaper Taxi and the 32' 3/4 Tonners (I sailed on one, Lady Dawn, off Fremantle).  Paul was a good mate and we exchanged design ideas until he went missing (I was supposed to be on Smackwater, but had just started my rigging and chandlery business and couldn't get away).

The original sugar scoop was some 3 stainless steel wrapped around with the top corner of the scoop finishing below the gunwhale by a couple of inches so it do effect the AGS position.

Google translate of link above: "Unfortunately, we will now sell our nice and fast sailboat, as we will not be able to sail for at least two years. It is a 30-foot Raven equipped with mainsail (dacron), 2 pcs. genuor (roller genoa), 2 st. spinnackrars, mainsail, sprayhood, boom tent, windbreak + backrest for the cockpit, anchor, anchor line, rope timber, fresh cushions, radio, VHF, double compasses, wind instrument, knob meter, autopilot, kitchenette with sink and two-burner kitchen and 4 berths.
The engine is Volvo Penta MD5A (newly renovated) with sail drive and folding propeller.
The boat is easy to sail and fast and has i.a. won several sailing competitions. The boat can be seen on land, but will be launched at the end of April.
There is also a harbor and a place for winter storage if desired."

I remember it was clearly a bolt-on, not anywhere near as elegant as the one in the photo, but I don't recall it being metal - there was maybe a plywood step set in (that D'Arcy used as a fishing platform).  I do remember the lolly scoop shape.  

Fuck, that's 47 years ago!  The boat has aged better than me ...

Damn. I have brand new spectra sails that would fit that boat. 

Far cheaper to buy that one than ship/sail mine there.

Those boats were competitive 1/4 Tonners back then. PHRF about the same as a San Juan 24 - 220 or thereabouts.

They were fast boats in their day.

There is one for sale in the marina here in Jax.  It actually seems to move pretty well for the condition it and the sails are in.
