Help with Identifying a Boat

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but here goes.

I recently picked up a 24ft boat on Craigslist that was free to whoever could get it off the ground.

The hull is in relatively good condition and just needs a lot of elbow grease and TLC. It does not have a sail or mast though.

Anyone have any tips on how to best identify what the make and model might be?? The HIN lists it as 'Homemade' so that hasn't helped me at all.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

As homemade it's not likely to be recognizable, but get your post count up to 5 and you can post a picture so we can try to guess!

The HIN looks like it was an assigned number and was engraved into the hull.

I highly doubt that the boat is actually homemade. It's a fixed keel boat with a small galley and toilet below deck.

I will post pictures as soon as I'm able.

I am assuming it is a FG hull?

Just helping you to get to your 5 posts...

It is a fairly good hull.
