Notes

Mainsail, BA-1 - 24.04.2008 by Daniel Rossi
I have a main built by North Sails with logo BA-1. There are markings for Geneve 1972 and then another date for 1974.
Information - 24.04.2008 by Matti Muoniovaara
This is Luders hull #1007 and L5.5#6.
Sail letters BA-1. Db number BAH-001.
John B#1 never existed. John B sails in the American folksong "Sloop John B". It was first recorded 1927. Best known version of the song is recorded on the Beach Boys LP 'Pet Sounds' from 1966.
John B2 is the first of the John B's dynasty... - 29.03.2008 by Sebastien Schmidt
According to Matti Muoniovaara's source, "John B1" never existed. As he wrote in a previous note : "But where is John B the first ? I have come to conclusion that there was no first John B."
