Noah Kornblum's Polly (now Sanguine), Yankee #219, SOLD, to Matt Kapp, Western Long Island Sound/City Island, New York, (updated August 10, 2017)  

August 10, 2017. Matt Kapp checking in as the new owner of Sanguine (ex Polly). Here is his email and we stand by for pictures an progress reports.

Hi Ron,

Love the Dolphin web site and in fact it played an important role in my decision to buy Sanguine (formerly Polly) in June. Nice boat and I'm happy to pick up where the previous owner left off (he did some amazing upgrades including new Awlgrip, wiring, panel, etc.). Among the upgrades I've done so far: new anchor, chain & rode, new teak (yes, teak!) C-Head composting toilet, new solar panel, outboard overhaul, etc. and the list goes on...

If you can add me to the group membership so I can access the Forum that would be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance and will keep you posted on my progress with the boat.

All best,

Matt Kapp

Welcome Aboard Matt!


Fair Winds Noah!





This is the history we have on Yankee #219

May 25, 2017. We got a tip from a guy looking for a Dolphin that there was one for sale on Yachtworld. A little research and we found the ad - it was for Yankee #219! We are trying to reach Noah to get filled in on what's happened to Polly, now Sanguine. Here is the ad (minor edits), some photos and contact info

1971 YANKEE Dolphin 24
Length: 24'
Engine/Fuel Type: Single OB/ Gas/Petrol
Located In:New York, NY
Hull Material: Fiberglass

Current Price:
US$ 7,500

Welcome to the world of classic Yachting, where you will be seduced by the elegance, and beauty of this twenty-four foot sailing yacht. Designed by the famous Naval Architecture firm Sparkman and Stevens, her aesthetically pleasing lines will have your heart.

An early accomplishment of the firm, she boasts both beauty and efficiency, making for a truly eye-catching vessel that will have all your friends wanting to join you. Her cabin is cozy and compact, perfect for camping out and cuddling up with your dearest, when moored at an anchorage far off somewhere. With her privately enclosed v-berth cabin, and her wide convertible settee in the main cabin, there's plenty of accommodation to invite a friendly couple for an overnight.

Her spacious galley is sure to provide many salivating meals, prepared with the help of your Origo 3000 Alcohol stove. That means a safer way of cooking when at sea, or waiting out rough weather. Her long and protected cockpit will have you feeling safe and able at the helm, all within easy reach of engine controls, sheets, and furling line. Behind you as you steer, her like-new Tohatsu Engine sits within an outboard well, a well-suited placement of power when in a heavy following sea. That's because the center of propulsion is deeper than on a conventional outboard-mount. This is your chance to own one of the finest yachts designed, right here on City Island.

Come claim your Yankee Dolphin 24, while she's still available, on the hard, ready to launch this Summer.

Please contact Fred Chandler at 347-927-3350

This is the history we had on Yankee #219 up until now.

April 21, 2010 Noah Kornblum checked in last night as the new owner of Polly. We first heard about this boat on March 12, 2010 from a post by Ed Fountain on the Sailnet Forum. It appeared for sale on Craig's List on 3/9/2010. Below are the pictures and listing information from the ad.

Here is Noah's email

Hi, My name is Noah Kornblum, and I am the proud new owner of Ed Foutain's Yankee Dolphin 24 (#219).  He had named her Polly, and my wife and I plan to keep the name. Your web site is beautiful and clearly a labor of love. (So is your boat!).... Thanks! Noah

Stay tuned for more about Polly (including her new Homeport, and hopefully some pictures.

November 8, 2010, Noah checked in with a Dolphin 24 website book order and an update on Polly. Here is his email - edited.

Hi Ron,

Polly will have her hull professionally stripped and painted this winter at Baron's Boatyard in City Island NY.  We will rewire the mast and update standing and running rigging as required. The sails will be inventoried and perhaps a new main if needed, but don't tell my wife (ha ha).

Best Wishes,


January 29, 2011 Noah sent in the following update and pictures.



Hi Ron,

Hope you are well. Thought I'd share these with you. Polly is getting a long needed face lift. These photos were taken at Barron's Marine in City Island NY. This is after two primer coats, but the final Awl Grip hasn't been done yet. The teak toe rail has been repaired and final varnish coats in the spring...Standing, running rigging and sails to be upgraded as needed in the spring fit-out. Nice day-dreaming pics for a snowy day.

Fair tides and winds, Noah




Postscript August 10, 2017 - missed this!! May 7, 2012. Noah sent in a copy of his dad's book At Sea in the City, a book about sailing around New York City in Tradition, an ancient (1910!), 24' Crosby built, New England catboat. It deserves a place on our recommended reading list - a fascinating read. Noah has sailed with his Dad on Tradition, and his dad sails with Noah on Polly.
