Looks like her a N.Y. 40 had an old copy of sail magazine with picture of crew from early Bermuda win ,all white uniforms, handlebar mustaches  but I believe a different rig wish I had pics but still have great memories  of cruise around 1972 Recall deck reinforced with metal strap cross-bracing,double handled anchor windless and large bronze spring as chain snubber thanks for reply   Mike
