GER 12 - Lake of Starnberg
GER 18 (ex NOR 27) - Lake of Constance
GER 64 (ex SWE 37) - Lake of Starnberg
ITA 42 - La Spezia

Who has info on these missing boats?
We do plan to rejoin all of them in 2014 in Central Europe, for the 50th Enoshima Jubilee.

- This is Luders hull #1026 and L5.5 #23
- Yeoman IV K-4 and BA-4 - 04.04.2008 by Matti Muoniovaara
- Boats named Yeoman (numbers IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, X, XII and XV were 5.5s, last number is IXX) were owned by the Aisher family in Great Britain.
Yeoman IV was designed by Charles Arthur Nicholson and built by Camper & Nicholson 1952 (C&N building #789).
This boat has never been in the Bahamas. In Helsinki Olympics it had first British sail letters K-4 and Bobby Symonette as skipper. In the final entry list sail letters were BA-4 and crew was Donald Carlton Pritchard (helmsman), Basil Herbert McKinney (Gavin's uncle), Basil Kelly and Godfrey Walter Higgs.

- The John B built by Kungsör in 1963 was sold to Sweden in the mid 60-ies to Tomas-Bertel Nathorst and was named Tomatoe, S48. Symonette was the first owner, but he certainly was not the owner later than 1967, when he got his new boat (or was there yet another John B between 1963 and 1967? My owner record implicates that: Symonette 63–?, Nathorst ?-ca 67, Sandberg ca 67-73, Busch 73-79, Uggla 79-?)

According to Kaspar, she became SWE-048 ?

- 9th/15 at the XVIII Olympics 1964 Tokyo, Japan, Robert Hallam Symonette, George Leroy F., Percival Andrew Knowles, John B 3, BA-1, Alfred E. Luders Jr. 1963, 9-13-11-3-3-10-10, 2713p.
- Yes, this boat will stay "John B3"... - 29.03.2008 by Sebastien Schmidt
- ...and it will be renamed BAH-004b as soon as the website would allow to consider double-numbers to clarify such messy situations with the extensions a, b, c, etc. At this time we would be able to complete more precisely the story...
In the mean time, "Yeoman IV" has been moved to GBR-004 (see http://5.5inventory.org/GBR/004/) and will wear BAH-004a ID as well.
- May be not an original boat ? - 10.02.2008 by Site Administrator
- The name Yeoman is normally to Australian boats. The only source we have is the following olympic results : 15th/16 at the XV Olympics 1952 Helsinki, R.H. Symonette Yeoman BA-4 15-12-13-9-12-16-10 1428
