Somebody found this gem of a Nieman-Marcus jacket in a second-hand shop. Any idea what dinghy the blueprints are from?

The plans might be wrong... That doesn't look like a forestay to me...

Get it laminated or it'll be trash before the boat's finished.

Any WBF blazer would need to be Flameproof.

The sail emblem would be for an International 16, if that was ever designed. As it is the forefoot looks wrong.

I was thinking an Interlake too, but it isn't quite right. The triangle sail emblem doesn't show up in any of the lists I've looked at. I'd guess it's one of those generic "parts of a boat" diagrams from a learn-to-sail manual. Building pans wouldn't label the parts like that. I there there are at least two different boats; the one on the front by the buttons has the mast a lot more forward than the one on the back.

No need for flameproof; all one really needs is a healthy dose of equanimity and a quick finger on the ignore button.

It's a Nieman Marcus 16.
Only $99,999.00.
Get a couple for your best buddies this Christmas. Get them the blazers, too.
The sailbags and cushions are made of the same material.
Spiffy, spiffy, spiffy.
