Info received from Warren Muir:
"...KA-4, Yeoman IV; originally owned by Owen Aisher, as K-4..."

Designer - 27.08.2009 by Matti Muoniovaara
Both Yeoman IV and V were designed by Young Charlie and that's Charles Arthur Nicholson. Ian Dear, Camper & Nicholsons two centuries of yacht building, 2001 Quiller Press Ltd.
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?

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...
