    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.

    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.

    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.

    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/
