November 5, 2010. We have found Kiwi, a Yankee that sailed to the South Pacific! Deb Davis sent in an email reserving a Dolphin 24 website book, and indicating she lived in Missoula, Montana. The DFI hairs bristled on the back of your webmaster's neck. In a follow up email Deb told us she and her husband had #107 and kept her on Flathead Lake.

We know about #107 - she was Charlie Nogle's Kiwi and he sailed her from San Francisco to Tahiti, Bora Bora, the Marquesas, and Hawaii. We had also found a 2000 email to Jim Huxford's old Dolphin 24 website from someone who was looking at a Dolphin 24, hull #107, on Flathead Lake! Until now, she was missing. Click here to go to Kiwi's page. Fanny is our 167th found Dolphin - click here to go to the list.

Kiwi is not the only Dolphin on Flathead Lake - #98 has just arrived! Warren Levine, the former owner of #98 told us that the buyer of his boat took it to Montana, and had previously owned a Dolphin. Click here to go to #98.

Here is Deb's email (consolidated/minor edits)

Dear Ron,

We have Hull #107 and her name is Fanny. We bought her a few years ago from the couple who just bought Hull #98. They regretted selling Fanny and liked the Dolphin so much they just bought another one.

We now will have two Dolphins on Flathead Lake - the two best looking boats on the lake! Looking forward to the Dolphin 24 book! My husband will love it! Thanks,

Deb Davis
Missoula, Montana

ps I will also send you a copy of the article that told about Fanny's famous voyage! (http://dolphin24.org/rob_paige%20article.html)


November 7, 2010. We have heard from the past owners of Fanny, Lisa Hochmann and Don Dryer, now owners of Yankee #98. Here is an edited excerpt of their email

We bought Hull # 107 in December, 1998 from a brokerage in the Bay Area (SF Bay) and trailored Delphino (?) to Somers, MT on one of the coldest days of that winter. I am sure she was wondering "what on earth is all this white stuff on the ground!"

 We renamed her Fanny after Don's mom and she got the hang of being sailed on our beautiful freshwater Flathead Lake. We were quite pleased when Deb and Greg bought her and planned to keep her right there.
