Welcome aboard.

We certainly must have MORE information and photos to be of any assistance to you.

1. Is the boat wood, fiberglass, rubber or some other material?
2. If wood, is it plywood lapstrake, cedar strip, mahogany strip? or?
3. Centerline length, gunwale length, width, transom width
4. Are there any markings on the boat such as name tag, builder's plate, serial number tag? If yes, what are they EXACTLY and COMPLETELY?
5. construction details such as deck, windshield frame, seating, flooring, etc...

This is just a start in an effort to attempt an identification.

You can email me directly if desired: thompsonboat at msn.com
