#ClassicBoats - WoodenBoat magazine has put out an appeal for any leads as to the whereabouts of Windflower, a two-masted sailboat sold in Los Angeles nearly 60 years ago and whose trace has since been lost.
The EP Hart-designed, 45-foot yawl was build in the UK in 1928 and by the 1950s had found its way to the US west coast, specifically Los Angeles where it was sold by Peter Tangvald in 1959.
With no trail to follow from this sale, the magazine turned to social media for clues — and may have found a lead from a reader who believes they saw the boat, or one very much like it, in Dun Laoghaire Marina around the year 2000.
