Some of these birds are genetically blue - they also fly south.

What's this give up business?

There are hundreds of catamarans in different models by this Marque - some with same model name which will have altered in design over time --- as one sees in car models.

This one had almost vertical transoms in the beginning. Lousy bridge deck clearance - no dagger boards to help it sail to windward.

Please send a complaint to Google.

Richard

I found a port stern quarter pic of a Prout which looks very similar, but a Manta is NOT a bird, not even a blue one, so I am still stumped.

Pete,

Got it - A Prout ! Just one of over 4,000 Catamarans delivered by Prout - It looks like a Prout Manta - but probably a Prout 38 Snow Goose of a later vintage. With a sort of 'fly bridge' added.

(Snow geese are white but there is a Blue morph of the same species)

I defer to you as always, but I really think it is a Manta, those of that designation I have seen CAME with that cockpit/helm configuration. As another member commented " I do not want to have to venture forward in a seaway on that boat!! "
