It does look a bit like a Golden Hind, but this boat doesn't have an outboard rudder or raised cabin that I could see. It's a fiberglass boat, about 37' long, has a raised deck midsection, much like Tom Gillmer's "Blue Moon", or a Crocker design.

I found it curious that so many features of construction, and hardware design and fabrication, were identical to the W32, ie: the boom gallows, bowsprit and platform, cranze iron, bob stay and tang, cap rail, round bronze ports. I have't seen a cranze iron of this design other than on a Westsail, so assumed it was a Westsail Co. design?

On an unrelated topic, not being sure of my Westsail history, did Worldcruiser Yacht Co. build some westsails, or any other boats, like the Worldcruiser 50 featured in Ferenc Mate's book?
