- GBR-4: Yeoman V - 21.08.2009 by Frits Kruyt
- According to information from the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, UK (from their Camper & Nicholsons Ltd files and Lloyd's Register of Yachts), GBR-4 (K-4) was Yeoman V.
Owned by Owen A. Aisher 1955-61, and designed and built 1955 by Camper & Nicholsons (Design No A102, Yard No 810).
Yeoman IV was built in 1952 by Camper and Nicholsons, Yeoman IV (Yard No 789), presumably for Owen A. Aisher.
She sailed in the 1952 Olympics for the Bahamas with sail number K-4.
Could there have been two boats with sail number K-4?

- This boat will be then BAH-004a as well.

- A part of the BAH-004 story... - 29.03.2008 by Sebastien Schmidt
- This boat was chartered by Bobby Symonette for the XV Olympics in 1952 in Helsinki where she finished 15th on 16 (15-12-13-9-12-16-10 1428 pts.),
According to Matti Muoniovaara's source, "the boat sailed under Bahamas flag but had British sail letters K-4".
Soon the website will allow to consider double-numbers as BAH-004a and BAH-004b. At this time we would be able to complete the story...
