I was a past owner of Showboat #73. I bought it in about 1973 from a man who lived in Arizona. I was 17 years old at the time and I spent quite a bit of time getting the boat restored for sailing around Newport Bay. The info I had on the boat was that it was built in 1947 or 1948 for a boat show held in 1948. Hence the name Showboat. The boat was unique from what I understand in that the entire cockpit was built with teak and her spar was one piece of spruce. I moved to Hawaii and in 1978 sold it to someone in Los Alamitos.
I have attached two pictures of it sailing in Newport about 1975. I have a lot of fond memories of being a senior in high school, and though without a car, taking my dates sailing.
