Tiger - 19.04.2017 by Matti Muoniovaara
If you look at photo 3208, you can see that this boat is different than boat in the black and white photo in Documents box! The other one is not classic any more. Separate rudder is accepted but not different new fin keel and bottom.
The 1968 Olympic boats - 15.10.2012 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The Canadian 1968 participant boat has returned to active racing in Switzerland, hoping to soon be meeting with other Classic 5.5's, including especially the other 1968 Acapulco boats. Those, whose location is known are these:

SUI 90 - Prangins, Lake of Geneva
GER 17 - Strande, Firth of Kiel
AUS 14 - Sydney
ITA 54 - Riva, Lago di Garda
GER 23 (ex F 29) - Wismar, Baltic Sea
SUI 106 (ex N 31) - Port-Choiseul, Lac Leman
DEN 12 - Tåsinge, Svendborg
PUR 76 (ex US 76), The Netherlands

Who has info on these missing boats?
GBR 35 (Z 96)
USA 68
RUS 116 (?)

We do plan to rejoin these latest in 2018, for the 50th Acapulco Games anniversary.

Regretfully lost is the Gold Medal boat SWE 51 "Wasa IV", which drowned in a regatta in 1974.
