Mystery Solved ~ Barefoot 12 Outrigger
Barefoot 12 Outrigger ~
I received B&W copies from Dick Medve in Hawaii, co-owner designer for Barefoot Enterprises who produced the 'High Performance Sailing Outrigger Barefoot 12'.
We are currently exchanging information, however, the story goes ... In 1960(s) the boat was produced to compete in price with the then new, Hobie 14 catamaran. In 1970(s), a small fleet was shipped to Walt Disney World Florida to be sailed off the beach for the opening celebration of the Polynesian Resort. Each boat had a very distinctive 'Tiki' mask affixed to the bow, carying the Outrigger theme and the hulls were available in 6 custom colors.
