    Older fiberglass production ... no insignia or HIN numbers - no sails.

    Thought a few of you here might offer some insight as to her maker/design.

    Thanks!

    Looks like a Corribee. I don't know how many ended up in the States, but a lot were built.

    Yep ~ It's a match!

    How she got here is the next piece of the puzzle to discover!

    THANKS Crag Cay!

    WONDERFUL!

    Michael S - please stay in contact! I tried so hard to locate her after my buddy and I visited that marina years ago. At that time (and when I started this tread) I did not know the make/design of the boat and wanted to learn more. I posted to several sailing BBs for info. So ... after much research, I discovered she was a Corribee 21. I then followed Nathan's 'OnKudu' blog about his travels and hoped someone had rescued the boat in Maryland.

    Just curious, how did you locate this thread?

    Corribee 21

    When I went on the net and searched corribee sail boats ,there she was.
    I trailered her down to Florida where she spent a couple years on the inter coastal waterway with my brother in Flagler Beach.Now she is back here with me .I sail her on the Potomic from Mt Vernon down to Quontico.
    I am in the middle of modifying and reconditioning

    Roger Taylor has made several long voyages in his junk rigged Corribee. In recent years his 'holiday' is to sail his Corribee from England to Iceland. He has outfitted the boat to be controlled from below and unsinkable if holed.

    Furledsails.com has two podcasts with him.
