I owned a Serendipity 43 with sail number 6120, from 1985 to 1991 built by New Orleans Marine (Tom Dreyfus) that I named Toscana. It had been owned by Dave Howell as Decision. There were quite a few on the Great Lakes at the time.

As a sad ps my 43 went into daily charter service as Lake Street and then two or three owners later looked very ragged and very different having been stripped of nearly all deck fittings and with small roller furler.

There was a green hulled Serendipty name Rasputan in Chicago. Have no idea what happened to it.

Rasputin became Decision which became Toscana.

Toscana - on the 2001 IMS list, exDecision owned by Dave Howell in mid-80's, ex-Rasputin owned by Russell Jannke 1980-1981, did 1981 SORC
