Looks more like a Consolidated than an Elco, and the transom is all wrong for a Mathis.
Nope, nope. Any more guesses? A few hints- She is 47' and built in 1932. I thought this one would be easy.
I'm sure I've seen it before, just can't quite recall.
Yeah Seafarer, I've seen the pic somewhere, can't remember if it was Classic Boat or Wooden Boat mag.
P.S. Just looked up the Purdy, FAR more sexy.
I know I've seen it as well. It sure doesn't look like a Wheeler, and I don't really know Matthews well enough to say for sure, though it's possible.
This is a guess and only a guess, but after digging out the "old boat dart board" I hit the line between Mathis and New York Yacht & Launch
"ACTAEON" is a 47' ACF Commuter built by American Car and Foundry in 1932. At the time of this photo, she was owned by noted yachtsman Earl McMillan. "ACTAEON" was for many years kept in a covered shed here on the Chesapeake along side "J'ADOR III" her 1929 sister ship of which I am a previous owner.
Someone else take a turn!
Who can name both boats in this 2006 photo. They both have new names now- bonus points for anyone who can correctly give their current names as well.
You forgot to attach the pic Ken.
Sorry- Poor internet connection in Edgartown Harbor
I know one of them.....
I thought you might Eric. Now maybe someone can help you to identify the Trumpy
Can I get it by default if I know EVERY name that the Trumpy has ever had including current?
Eric- a hint. The larger boat was at Rybovich for some VERY cheap dockage at the time. You may even say she was getting a family discount.
I'm not geographically plugged in to the Palm Beach players. Sorry, I'm stumped on this one.
OK, I figured it out. The Trumpy was Exact, next Coconuts, now America. The big boat is the Floridian, former Aussie Rules, now Nomad. Whew!
You're up Eric. Well done.
Builder and model year?
OK, a hint: This builder is still in business and building boats.
I want to say she's a 1950s Egg, but something seems a little off.
