    Nelly Belle, 's Custom One Design 24' looks a lot like the precursor to the Moore 24' Grendel
    Nell spent "25 terrible years in the hot sun of Canyon Lakes, Texas" before being saved by Alan Wirtanen and Melanie Kett and restored.
    She was one of 4 boats built in the early 70's in Santa Cruz.

    Three boats in the 1975 edition of the 245-mile Santa Cruz to Santa Barbara race came from the same plug Nelly Belle, Loose and Pi. Two boats came home. On June 27, 1975, off Point Sur, Pi capsized and sank in a gale with 40- to 50-knot winds. The three-man crew took to the liferaft and spent the night adrift and awash in the breaking seas. Suffering from exposure, Steve Fennell, 33, of Capitola, and his brother Walter, 22, of Bethel Island, perished. After 24 hours, a Chevron oil tanker rescued the third member of the crew, Niels Kisling, 16. Fennell had built Pi himself.
