The color and cut of the jib looks pretty similar. It is JJW time on the island and he had a lot to do with Buffets success...early years. Wishing and hoping.

I wouldn't know Buffett if he fell on me. What should I be looking for?

Good pic of this boat in the San Pedro Daily yesterday, 2/3/09. Appropriately titled "not Buffet's boat" by Belican Pete.

A couple who kayaked out there told me the name on the boat is Quivira. I find the flag that she flies interesting...it's from the Marshall Islands in Micronesia.

If it is the Quivira, it's been painted since the pictures on the web were taken. The flag is interesting.....

I saw that too, Shuf...wonder if she's the Quivira or not? Everything seems to check out, except for the paintjob.

Anybody know for sure?

Hey - LOOKS LIKE JIMMY did pull up to San Pedro. Almost looks like twin boats out there now.

Cheeseburgers all around!

Sailed right next to it yesterday, it is the Quivira from the Bikini Islands.

Didn't see that one. Don't think it was out there then.

No. Beothuk is owned by an experienced Canadian yachtsman.
