My 1960 Dolphin Salty 16 flybridge cruiser. Enclosed head, sleeps two, flying bridge, she's 15'11" long, 91" wide, her transom is 86.5" wide. She's a fatty. She was the first Mystery Boat on Fiberglassics back in 1999. This model was used for several photo spreads in books and magazines during 1961 and 1962. It was also featured in some of the original Homelite 4 cycle outboard brochures. This is the only one known to exist at this time, 2010. Back in 1998 I started my quest to find one, and asked for Kelly's help on the then new Fiberglassics. In 2003 or so member alumglass posted that he had discovered some articles about the boat in an old Fawcett book from 1962 declaring this a Dolphin Salty. So we finally knew the make. In 2004 a friend called me from the boat show in Olympia WA, and said one was moored there. I finally bought this boat when the owner moved up to a 36'er in late 2007. So it's been a long affair, this boat! Wonder if another will appear?
