Gannet : Family Boat  
What I know about Gannet mostly comes from the HOA website where it is reported that she was last heard of in Portugal c2000 with plans to sail for South America. 
I've been able to contribute names of former owners, culled from Lloyd's Register of Yachts along with the fact that, originally called Chloe, in 1937 she became Gannet.
