Marlin is 13' (3.99m) long.

The SailFish in my 1973 book is 12' (3.66m) long.

Beam: 5'2", 90sq ft sail.

Both Marlin and Sailfish were in those days available from HHMarine, Horndean, Hampshire.

However, the pictures of the sail symbols I have neither exactly matches the one you have - although they are both very similar.

ChrisJ, Thanks for info, I will try to measure the boat this weekend to see if it tallys with your figures.

I will let you know, cheers,

Geoff
