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