One of Rositas previous incarnations

One of Rosita's previous incarnations

Rosita had a black hull and was named "Slow Motion" when the previous owner bought her. He had her hull and deck non-skid areas painted with AwlGrip "Moondust" and change her name to "Satori."

I was contacted by the original owner, Paul, who bought hull number 76. The original gel coat is black and she was in the 1976 Annapolis Boat Show. The original Bill Of Sale was for $52,000 and she was sold as a "1977" model. Paul met Bob Wright and his son at the factory in the Catskills.

Paul owned her about two years and had her documented out of Hawaii although she was never there. That was certainly curious to me when I first saw the history of her documentation.

Paul originally named her Mariner 3. She also has Lilypad and Toroca listed on the Coast Guard documentation site. So her name has changed over the years: Mariner 3, Toroca, Lilypad, Slow Motion, Satori, Rosita.

other sizes: small medium original

Garry, I have followed this site for some time dreaming of buying an Allied Princess ketch, we found in Godrich Ontario, we saved for 5 years and finally got her , she had no name at the time, her previous name was Summer Girl, We named her Dove II , she is an awesome boat, hull number 10' 1973 , thank you so much for this site Garry! It helped so much and still does. Sincerely randy Hines

By far the most informative site I have ever witnessed.
I am a native of San Diego Ca. and wish you luck coping with your re-location.
I noticed the same letter usage in both names semi supersticious?
Home is listed for sale at and will contact you once it is under contract.
Good luck to us all.
My use of Rosita would be annual winter cruises south I am currently retired and would love to be able to give her the care she deserves. ps I built or worked at building boats in Costa Mesa in the 60's SeaCraft Ericson Cal boats.
