Need help identifying this Cape Cod - interesting rudder

I came across this day sailer for sale and thought it might be a fun project boat. Can anyone help me identify this boat?

The builders plate says Cape Cod Shipbuilders and the number is 21 - 61, which I believe is hull 21 in 1961. I've scoured their web site to try to identify the model, with no luck.

I am very interested in figureing out this rudder configuration. (The boat is in the water so I haven't seen the bottom yet.)

Hopefully you can see the pictures. The tiller goes over the stern then to a rudder under the transom towards the keel. There is no centerboard, so Im assuming there's a keel under there.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Why don't you call them up. They can probably give you a lot more information over the phone, since they're still in business.

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.

It would be helpful if you gave the length of the boat, but that appears to be a Bullseye, which was a fiberglass version of the Herreshoff 12 1/2 (waterline length) also known as a Doughdish. The Bullseye had several notable differences from the original Herreshoff 12 1/2's. The Bullseye's were bermuda rigged (rather than gaff), had a small cuddy cabin, some had self bailing cockpits. Depending on who you believe the Bullseyes were slightly heavier, and had less sail area and ballast than the 12 1/2's.

This is a Cape Cod Shipbuilding Co Bullseye - and is, as you suspected, the 21st bullseye hull built in 1961. The rudder is attached at the transom and at the deadwood behind the keel by pintles and gudgeons. Feel free to message me with any further questions.

Just curious, are you affiliated with Cape Cod Shipbuilding? If so, you really do need to read and follow the SPECIAL INTEREST DISCLOSURE post in the boat buying forums.

Thanks for the assistance! It is indeed a Bulls Eye. Quite an interesting boat. Designed by Nathiel Herschoff and built since the early 1900's. I did contact the builder and I must say what an impressive response I got...specs, details, history...they were extremely responsive and helpful. No wonder they have been around for 100 years!
