When and where built not found, also not an owner.

The schooner WINDFALL left the port of Mystic, Connecticut in November 1962 and headed for Bermuda with on board five crew.
Although what befell her will never be known, a Belgian freighter STAD GENT came across something unusual in heavy seas about 250 miles off Cape Hatteras, East Coast of America on the night of 15 November.
Voices were heard then visual contact was made with five men in a raft. They disappeared before the vessel could come around. Where they from the WINDFALL?

She is on Maldives 2001 sg? Scott 2540a.
