    Seeking information on schooner. Name = KONA Owner: Harry Goldberg Sailed out of Miami. Knew he owned the boat in 1923, not sure if still in the family in 1929. Any information appreciated.

    Any more details you can furnish? I found a Kona, schooner built in 1901 that was 184' LWL and 674 GRT which is BIG. It was in Merchant Vessels of U.S. not Lloyd's which has no Kona past or present in 1927. Lloyd's is heavy on power vs sail. Will keep looking.

    First, thank you for your reply and Happy Thanksgiving. It is possible that that is the yacht. According to information I have the boat was 175'. I have 2 photos, one with my grandfather (Harry Goldberg) standing against a mast and the other in 1923 of my mother and a friend of grand dad's sitting on a hatch. The yacht had a complete silver dinner service which would lead one to believe the vessel to be of good size. It supposedly sank off the Florida coast in a storm sometime in the 1930's. Do your records show where the boat was built? We found one built in Baltimore in 1909, but was only 60'. Pretty sure that is NOT the one. Thank you again for your efforts.

    The Kona I found was grounded and wrecked off Australia in the mid 20's. I'll keep looking. I know a schooner guy who ought to know something.

    In addition to my Lloyd's American Yacht issues listed above, I have now acquired the memory stick from the Association of Yacht Historians that contains the COMPLETE SET of "Lloyd's Register of Yachts ( British, European, worldwide other than American). It is a stupendous resource which includes ALL the supplements.
