Question I want this boat but what is it?

This is a boat im probably going to go look at monday as a potential project, could be a total wreck but I want to at least figure out the brand before I go, since its listed as "unknown". Its an unfinished project, I'm not sure what to make of the dorade and clamshell vents, the teak decking is interesting. Apparently it has a mast and standing rigging but no sails and the running rigging needs replacement. I assume thats at least $1000 for a basic setup?
Hope the link to just the pics doesnt violate any rules.

I can't help but wonder if a non trailerable fin keel is too much for me. The city has mooring bouys in a sheltered part of the river, I suppose that would help, winter could suck though. I've seen cradles on top of regular car or equivalent trailers, I wonder how hard that is or if this is way too big and heavy, if I could do that I could store it for the winter no problem.

you can get basic sails for a 27 foot boat for around 800 per sail ( a quote for my hunter 27 ). running rigging depending a few things will run about 200.

now remember sails can get pricey fast depending on what you want. also things like a main sail cover can cost 200 to 300.

now you also need to check out the standing rigging as that could cost another grand if it needs to be replaced

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

The list Still is referring to is my Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started. It is well worth reading, since it can eliminate the real dogs from your list...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If you purchase her. Once cleaned up she will be a beauty. I love the cockpit. I would place a board between the berths in the bow. It makes for a much better, and comfortable bed for a couple!......i2f
