Mystery Model Solved

We just happened to receive a comment about design #832, sailing yacht Chance, over the weekend. The current owner has posted some images to his MobileMe Gallery. In reviewing the design this morning it dawned on me that this is possibly the design of the model in question that we posted yesterday. Looking at the general arrangement and sail plans I note the following (matching) details, aside from the obvious:
1. House geometry and number of portlights match
2. Companionway off center to starboard
3. Aft portlight after edge aligned with companionway hatch garage
4. The next portlight forward of it centered on aft end of amidships hatch
5. Extremely tall binnacle at forward end of cockpit
6. Strange hatch at after end of cockpit coaming - very small and tall
7. Keel geometry
8. Rudder geometry
9. Propeller aperture geometry
10. Date of launch is 1949, which works with the model date of 1954.

I believe the mystery is solved. Thanks to the owner of Chance for coincidentally sending us this link.
