Swing Keeled 26-28 ft boat?

I stumbled across an abandoned boat this weekend at a storage lot near my marina. In talking with the lot owner it turns out the boat owner paid cash to store it for 1 week no name or any contact information and has not been back for 4 years. The lot owner is going to see what it would cost to take legal ownership of it and then possibly sell it to me if I can find out what it is and whether or not it would be worth messing with.

I did not have my camera with me but I'm going to try to describe it (I'll get and post a pic next weekend) Anyway.. it is a 26 -28 ft boat, I am guessing, wheel steering, inboard, 3' draft keel to waterline about 4-5 ft long with a swing keel adding to that. I thought at first glance it just a shoal draft but after looking a little closer I noticed the swing keel trunk. The rudder under the boat I could not find any a brand badges or stickers. The hull number started with xcm...

Thought if I could get the knowledgable sailnet group to throw out a few models they know of that match this loose and vague description I could hunt down some photos on the web and see what looks like the boat.

Looks an awful lot like an Irwin center board??
