Comment:
"Maud #92p was added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model because careful comparison of construction plan and model outline suggests it. #121p [Launch for schooner yacht Gitana] was added by CvdL because she had similar dimensions as Maud #92p. Note, however, that this model suggests an LOA of 20' 11" while Maud was 20' LOA." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)

Model identification:
"Newly identified model by Kathy Bray." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
