    Whoops, I certainly did, Lee
    
    One of the messages in those discussing the two methods of determining LON
    you posed was signed by someone, and beneath it was sailboat Bounty,
    Moorhead City, NC.
    
    The Bowman 47 is a fine boat. The one's I'm familiar with were all seen in
    the Eastern Caribbean, center cockpit with a small deckhouse, and yawl or
    ketch rigged.
    
    Good luck with you hunt,
    
    Joel
