Quail - K-5 - 1952 - 12.08.2009 by Matti Muoniovaara
Beken photograph from the Solent "Quail Olympic Trials 1952" tells that it was already 1952 K-5.
5.5 S-8 "If" - possibly exported to the UK - 10.01.2009 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The Lloyd's Register list is stating 5.5 K-5 "Quail" as Laurin/Tricksons/1951, but although built in 1951, she only appears as K-5 in the Lloyd's list of 1954.

The countercheck with Jens Busch reveils:
"In my research S-8 appears in the KSSS lists of registered boats in 1951, 1952 and 1953. So probably the boat was sold abroad after that."

Hence the assumption that K-5 has been originally S-8.
