As you were - it's a Graduate

Post by Hotspur » Wed Feb 29, 2012 11:44 pm

Any ideas?

I thought perhaps Fleetwind but it's been years since I saw one

Edit: The page does indeed say it is a Graduate. My bad. Having said that, has anyone ever seen a Graduate with rolled side decks and a dished stern deck before? I certainly haven't.

Hotspur another boat kind folk used to lend me@ASC was a Fleetwind, nicknamed planks, however this is a much later oneImagethen there are 11 plus's Signets, that tend to have raised mountings for travellers. Not sure what a super grad looks like cockpit wise,
I am confused, as I think the standard Grad-we had one in the boat graveyard, was yes as that aft but with a smaller cockpit and oblong tanks.
Simples no, confused .com :roll:

Graduates can and do vary in cockpit layout, so you will see variations.
