- I think this boat raced in Travemunde 1967 for trials new three man keelboat as "comparison- boat". In this trials sailed one 5.5 also named John B by Luders, the helmsman was Bobby Symonette and the descriptions indicate the boat as last 5.5 "John B" designed by Luders.
(note moved from AUS 37 to BAH 5 following Kaspar recommendation 04.04.08)
