- USA 79 - 06.04.2008 by DAVID STOFF
- I hope that I can clarify some of the confusion. I have USA 79; sailing in Casco Bay, Maine. It is an Egger built cold molded hull. Moveable mast step. When I purchased the boat I was also given two blueprints. One was the sail plan, the other was the construction drawing. Great boat!
- Confusion between USA-072 Cloud 9 and USA-079 Cloud Nine - 03.11.2007 by Site Administrator
- This is a typical case of one the aim of this web site : to point out and clarify the unclear situations left by the history which is by nature uncomplete.
Following Matti Muoniovaara's source: "there were two Cloud 9s which were owned by Gordon Lindemann. The first was Cloud 9 US-72 and the second Cloud Nine US-79".
See USA-079 for complementary details.
