It was just a hint, but if someone wants to take a stab at the question I posted last week.

A trivia posting first timer here.
name, builder, and designer of this one
Park Isle Marine, Victoria BC
Greg Marshall Design
Yeah, easy one I guess
I have to hand off to someone else... no time to come up with anything interesting today, and I'll be gone a good part of tomorrow as well. I'll take my turn tomorrow night. In the mean time someone else can have a go.
The Dutch builder of this nice lady, original name and present name?
Hakvoort Shipyard, original name "Anton Smith II", present name "Yosma".
Design & Naval architecture: Pieter Beeldsnijder
Seems as both Kevin and Nilo has forgotten this thread, so maybe you should continue Coenharbour?
Prior to this thread being diverted, Viking58 never advised whether I was correct in my answer on the black and white photo of the Classic yacht above.
Builder, designer & the name of this (imho) piece of art.
Sorry for my absence, has been travelling since the post. I presume this boat should be "Griffioen" by De Viers Van Lentsch and built by Bloemsma van Breemen.
Correct ! "Griffioen" by "De Vries Lentsch" & "Bloemsma - van Breemen".
Nilo, You're up!
Yes! You are correct, The image and text came from a great book
The Golden Century: Classic Motor Yachts, 1830-1930
name, builder and designer of this semi displacement boat.
"Amigo" Heesen, designed by Pieter Beeldsnijder
you're spot on, it is your turn.
What is the name and current owner's name of this beautiful little yacht, and what, if any is her historical significance?
This seems to be stumping everyone. Here's a clue. She was built by Kanno Brothers Boat Builders in City Island NY.
Since I have been properly (and publicly) scolded by a moderator in another thread about my trivia being too difficult, I guess it's time to pull the plug on this one.
This little beauty is "Foto". Restored to new condition by her owner Cutts and Case Shipyard in Oxford, Md. "Foto" was owned by famed photographer Morris Rosenfeld, and was the platform from which many of his historic yachting photographs were taken. http://www.rosenfeldcollection.com/
