Mystery Model


We've had this unusual model with full sail plan sitting in a closet for years. Our model maker friend, Norman Angus, just did a major cleanup for us. It was decided not to do a full restoration such as to repair the dings in the toe rail as we were concerned it would actually hurt the value. Now we just have to figure out what boat it is. The only notation on the back is by who I assume is the model builder: Don Peterson, Larchmont (New York) 1954.

  1. Could the model builder have made it for someone in the Larchmont club? The might have records of the boats owned by members back then.

  2. It reminds me of 1953's Gulfstream 36, but with a fractional rig. Maybe the model was a study for a stock design?
