Hey gang -- another newcomer has arrived and I'm thrilled to be part of this venture. Just this morning I was bemoaning the lack of a forum to talk shop.
It turns out this site went up just as I was going through the process of buying a boat and sniffing around the web in search of Dolphin info. I ended up buying a 1968 Yankee Dolphin after she won out in price, performance and looks over a dozen other boats. Details of the hunt are in a recent article I wrote for the Seattle Times, where I am the boating columnist. The piece is posted on the boating page of my website, www.ericsorensen.net.

Hi Eric
Welcome! When you get a chance please send in your info - hull #, name, any history you have. I am working on a 'Fleet Roster section and I have about 60 boats so far - not bad for 10 weeks as a live site.

I found an old reference in Jim Huxford's old files. July 21, 1999 from a Carl Harrington in Edmonds, WA - Yankee #89. He was selling an almost new King Trailer for his Dolphin as he had got a mooring sooner than he expected.
