FAKE ALERT That is my old boat "EYKIS". My wife and I rebuilt her from the bottom up & cruised from 1994 to selling her in 2004 in Anacortes, WA. The alleged photo is a double image fake of the same boat that someone photoshopped and changed a few things. Take a look at the flags and background. The boat in Nov 2013 is currently called "Dulcinea" & for sale, much changed & sadly deteriorated, laying in Blaine, WA.
The one on the right is the real. Left one is total fake.
You can see the real photos on the Willard Groups Pictures under "Eykis".
It is the only 36' of 6 (1966-1969) ever built like it & went to Hawaii and back on it's own bottom. We have personal letters of that journey from that owner, Bill Schallenberg ("Hornblower" then) to prove that as well. He only burned 330 gallons fuel one way completing the trip in 18 days. The Willard boat builders in Costa Mesa, CA also have a copy of this documentation. USCG documentation center have history on file as it is still a documented vessel. Look it up by name. This is public information to anyone.
Thought you should know the facts here.
