Malabar II a Star on the Sea and on the Screen?

Looking back through photos from the Schooner Festival and remembered having a nice talk with a man on the dock near the Tree of Life and the Columbia.  A smaller, yet beautiful boat, the Malabar II was at the same dock and the gentleman shared with me that the boat had been in the Kevin Costner and Robin Wright film, Message in a Bottle.  I’ve since read conflicting reports, but regardless the Malabar II is pretty slick.  I’ve read that the Catherine that appears in the movie is actually the Concordia Yawl, Arapaho…but, the boat they sail on during the movie is the Malabar.
