Here’s the mystery vessel proposed by Mitbok, winner of the Relief Crew 2 post. What local yawl is this? First correct identification gets to post the next “relief crew” post.

My addition is a question about the photo below, another from Elizabeth’s September 2005 Mayor’s Cup archives. My question: Is the vessel in the foreground the same yawl as above? I’m not sure.

The background vessel is Lettie G. Howard, in the spotlight for the second day in a row.

While we’re on the subject of yawls and mysteries, why are some “lifeboats” or gigs carried on schooners called yawlboats? Google it and find lots of references to yawlboats.
