    It had been suggested in an earlier thread (now deleted) that this boat was made for the 2002 Worlds (Houston, Texas). Now that we have a picture, there can be no doubt that this idea is correct. The triple stripe up front and the (red/white/blue) sail and number (3281), are proof.
    No association with Katrina, or the 2005 Worlds (in Martinique), is warranted.

    Nick,

    I am interetested and live in nearby Cazenovia, NY. Just so there is no doubt about the vintage of this boat, please e-mail me (aglos@colgate.edu) the Hull I.D. Number located on the upper right hand side of the transom just under the hull/deck joint. The number shoukd start with "OQT." The rest of the numbers will date when the boat was built. I am pretty sure want to come look at it.

    Was there a National or International race scheduled in Texas in 20o2 that did not happen?
    I have a1999 Worlds boat that was raced hard .
    Bought this boat in perfect condition.
    It's still near perfect.

    Looks like a 2002 to me.

    We are not debating the boat as such, just the erroneous way it was advertised.

    As mentioned earlier, this Sunfish was made specifically for the 2002 Worlds. And it's possible that some of the boats made for the event were not used/needed at that time.

    I looked at the results for the Worlds in Houston and there were only 62 or 64 people entered, so there must have been some spare boats. They usually plan on either 72 or 100 boat worlds.
