    Ok I guess this happens more then I thought, I am assuming both of you are correct but I was thinking of the Palmer Johnson Unity painted Ford Blue for the Ford family.

    Ken or Castlerock go for it.

    Nope, the yacht I'm thinking of had a fin keel fitted at the same refit as the rig was changed.

    there goes my guess: Evergreen. Doesn't have a fin keel nor a rig.

    Second guess: Alfa Romeo?

    Hey, I found an old dusty but very interesting thread and I thought I would refresh it again...

    Lets start with an easy one, the name of the 60m A&R "Elandess" stands for what?

    Mhm no... I meant what "Elandess" stands for, it is the owners Initials "L and S". However you see I am not that creative in creating questions, so feel free to start a new round.
