Anyone have more info on this boat moored in Naples at the cocohatchee river park? Looks like a Stilleto or Reynolds, maybe close to 30 feet?

There's another cat of similar design across the dock at Marina Bay club.

These things need to be out sailing!

Looks like Flying Circus is a Stiletto 27. At least the one I found. I don't know how to post a pic here.

Wow, I was planing on naming my next boat Flying Circus. I just came to that decision this weekend and now I see this. Small world.

I'll try to grab a picture next time I'm there. It needs a little love, as there is quite a bit of grass on the bottom but looks sailable.

What threw me is there is no canopy on the hulls like the Stillettos I see on the web, just a sliding hatch on each side, and no windows/hatches forward on the hulls. Maybe a Stilletto 23?

I suspect that other one I see nearby is maybe a 27' stilleto? Can't get in there to have a closer look.

If I buy a bigger boat (one capable of overnighters), I'd name it "loony bin".

in looking on the net, Flying Circus may be a Mcgregor design, since it doesn't have those hull canopies...

Yeah, that's pretty tough on old guy eyes. R21 has solid fiberglass nacelle covers that are hinged on the outboard side, and open kinda reverse gull wing. No sliding covers. It does sort look like a Macgregor 36, hard to mistake a 36' boat for a 21' one. Bigger pictures would help.......

I think I saw daggarboard wells in each hull, which isn't typical of a Stilletto, is it?

Interesting I didn't notice before, but there's only one hatch (stb side).
