Back on May 9, 2007 we created a page for this boat and posted the following photo from a Sailboat Owners Association Internet ad. Besides this photo we had no information that we can find in our files about this boat other than a notation that there was an Oregon connection, and the name Larry Wilson. hmmmm....Was this just an error in data entry?

photo submitted by Larry Wilson to Sailboatowners.com, May 9, 2007 - look familiar?


June 21, 2012. And look what came over the transom this morning (minor edits)

Hi!  I'm the former owner of Yankee Dolphin hull #207, the Patty J.  We owned it from 1981 until last week.  The new owner told me about your site.  I never knew there was such interest in this great little sailboat.  We sail out of the Genesee Yacht Club in Rochester, NY.  We're very happy to know that it will still be used and not end up as one of those poor, sad abandoned boats left rotting on the shore.

It's beginning to look like this mystery was just poor data entry by the webmaster. Another reference to the Patty J was found - "www.NavyPointMarine.com ad". This is a Rochester, New York broker. And a just received followup email from Pat confirms it

Yes it is hull 207. We listed with Navypoint back in 2005, not in 2007, we thought we'd have to move. But things changed and we kept the boat. I think her previous name was Sunrise.


Suspicions confirmed? - most likely a webmaster screw up. My excuse - the website was only 6 weeks old at the time. Maybe Larry Wilson will turn up and ....or maybe we can just let it sit....


September 4, 2012. Pat has been keeping an eye on #207's movements. Here is her recent email and a couple of pictures.


Very happy to see that #207 made it to Conn. I'm attaching a couple of pictures of it when it left Rochester, NY earlier this summer. Graham's dad, Tom is piloting it. My husband John is the man on the dock watching the boat leave shore without him for the first time since 1981!

Is it still the Patty J or has it been renamed? (Webmaster Note: No decision at this time)
