2018 Avril, all information and picture from Dutch QT Class Facebook, Bruce Nelson (from Nelson/Marek Yacht Design, Inc.) "BLIVIT was my first design (prior to founding Nelson/Marek Yacht Design), which I helped to build here in San Diego, California and held 25 percent ownership with a group of San Diego Yacht Club Quarter-Ton aficionados. After finishing third in its first regatta, the 1977 North American Championship in San Diego, some changes were made to the rig and ballast to improve upwind performance and BLIVIT went on to amass a string of victories in 1978 and 1979, including the popular Newport-to-Ensenada and San Diego Hot Rum Series races, as well as the 1978 North American Championship. The light, beamy cold-moulded wood hull was initially fitted with a lightweight dagger board, which was later traded for a ballasted dagger board followed by a fixed keel as the IOR rule changed annually to encourage more stability. With its generous sail plan, BLIVIT benefitted from the increases in stability and enjoyed several successful seasons of racing in Southern California before disappearing to the East Coast of the US. Its current status and whereabouts is unknown."
