Sorry, can't help with the type, but "Good first-time project"? Hmmmm. My first thought is that a good first time project is the kind that nobody would do once they know what's involved!

They could have taken some better pictures for you there.

Do you have the title? I would think you could get the HIN off the title or off the boat, and tell the make from there (if the boat was made post 1973 IIRC)

Not sure what it is but I can be 100% sure it is not a Mirror offshore cruiser(19)

And I would be hard pressed to classify any boat with an OB as an offshore cruiser.

See update to listing here:

I believe that this is a Mirror: MIRROR DINGHY (INT) sailboat on sailboatdata.com
I'd hardly call it an offshore boat either.

This is a Mirror Offshore. It was designed by E.G van de Stadt and commissioned by the Daily Mirror news organization in the UK. It is the one Dylan Winter sailed around the UK. Twin-Keeler Newsletter: Around Britain in a Mirror Offshore
