The question F 23 / Z 57 is solved - 19.01.2009 by François Bouvier
FRA 23 was at first entered in this database as SUI 57, "Alchenar", designed by S&S for Yul Brynner.
More than one year after the first note of Matti Muoniovaara questioning the name of the boat and the designer, all documents collected proved that the SUI 57 entry was wrong. Thanks to all for this nice collective work.
