Unknown boat histories - boat names was created by Cindy Ann Bowers
Jeanie Lee did an amazing job a few years ago, building the Boat History project. Needless to say, it's a big job to try to gather records from US and Canadian documentation, random emails from members and ancient member lists. We have a few unknowns....

These are a few boat names that we have reason to believe are (or once were) attached to a Whitby or Brewer sailboat. If you have any information on these boats (specifically hull number!) please let us know. Hailing ports are included where known.

There is a Brewer 12.8 named Wind Bourne Hull number 5. It's currently in the Florida Keys. I believe that is the name it has always had.

Is this the kind of information you are looking for?

David,

Yes, that is the kind of info we are looking for, in general.

We have Windbourne in the data. She's actually hull number 238, (FMW422380483), but her sail number is 5. She's listed for sale in the Boats category in the forum.

Thanks!
Cindy Ann

Kevin,

Thanks for that info! We don't have much on Hull #21, but I've granted you permission to the owner data that we have. The next time you login, you should be able to see the Owner's Only tab.

Hi Cindy,

I wonder if Gypsy River might be Gypsy Rover in your wunknown list, which was the former name of Hull #21 which I just purchased. The guy I bought if from purchased the boat as Gypsy Rover in Merritt Island, FL and then renamed it Alive after moving it to Miami. I am checking to see if she is Coast Guard registered and waiting on a reply.

She is in great shape for a 47 year old vessel. Standard problems of leaky fresh water tanks and needs a bit of paint and love. I am in the process of painting her topside and redoing all the teak in her but will leave her original. Still has the original Perkins 4-236 and purrs like a kitten. I will try to get the history from the previous , previous owner as I have his name too. This is my first Whitby and I love the headroom being 6'5" tall. I can actually stand up in her. And the massive cockpit is what makes these vessels wonderful. I will post pictures as soon as I get her polished up a little. Previous owner was refitting her and took excellent mechanical care. I will update electronics and redo bottom and sail her.

Thanks so much for access to the Owners Group. I will keep you up to date with her progress. Can you suggest other places I may do further research on hull 21. I have maps and guides with notes of her sailing the Caribbean, Mexico and Keys in the 80's and 90's but nothing before or after that. She will be in the Caribbean again in another year.

Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving

Kevin,

You might, if you are patient, check the ancient association newsletters whitbybrewersailboats.com/index.php?opti...d&view=category&id=1 here.

I neglected to say "Welcome!" earlier. Glad to hear Hull #21 is getting some TLC! I look forward to hearing more about her renovation and her travels.

Kevin,

You said: "Standard problems of leaky fresh water tanks". I'm wondering how you may be planning to fix them? I maybe facing a similar problem and found a link on SBO (Sailboat Owners) that another sailor figured out on his sailboat that looks like a really interesting way to fix these.

Don't know if this will apply to you or not, but thought I'd share in case it may help.

Thanks David,

I will review this. The previous owner had already added some really nice bladders in the tanks and renewed all the piping and manifolds. He was living aboard with his family for 2 years. For now, I will probably keep his system as it is working really well. What I do plan to do is the plump just the tank in the V berth so I can collect water off the bimini and deck and we can use for fresh water wash down and showers in just the forward head.

Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving. Heading to the boat now to BBQ Prime rib and do some painting on her.

Kevin
