I've been right through the database, and can't match it...

It's quite a pretty little thing, more of a cruiser than a racer...

And apart from the outside, it looks like he's done a really good repair job...

That sail insignia seems really familiar, and something to do with north Wales, but I can't find it in the usual places, and I'm not really sure why I think I know of it, as the boat rings no particular bells.

He does say in the ad, that the rig is from a different boat... I wouldn't trust that insignia, whatever it is!

The sail insignia is Red Fox. Red Fox is a 20 foot 4 berth yacht with 2 asymmetric leeboard foils. The sail has clearly been reduced/re-cut.

I think this may be one of our Continental friends' designs....

It looks somewhat similar to this.

I wonder if Laser Tourist has any information on this one?

That is a fox?!

So what was the north Walian boat with a dragon on its sail?

It is definitely a RF - I sail in one frequently. The red horizontal stripe above the logo is also typical.

[quote="Rupert

Hence the expression " what the fox is that?"

It looks like the sail came from a Foxer dinghy, they come in different rigs.
