Help Please

I pulled this poor thing out of a farmers field in Ontario Canada and no one can tell me what it is. The cabin top comes off so I'm thinking it was an after thought. She's about 20 ft long maybe less, any Ideas are appreciated.

Thanks

If you can find the hull ID number (HIN), you'll be able to identify the builder and year.

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's a Cygnet 20

That boat is a Cygnet 20, designed and built by George Hinterholler of "Shark 24" fame, and later builder of Niagara and Nonsuch yachts. A great little daysailor, fixed keel with a cuddy for overnighting. Our yacht club had one for a few years as a junior trainer, and it served us well in constant 20K winds. Very quick off the wind in a breeze, but don't let it fall over, would likely swamp quickly. Probably dates from late 60s to early 70s. The cabin may have been an afterthought, but I suspect they pretty well all came with them.

Thanks Faster,

That makes sense as it looks like a smaller version of a Shark however this is the only picture of a Cygnet 20 I can find and the two are noticeably different.

The source may be incorrect though. The only markings i can find is the Ontario Reg. # 18E 26616. No HIN

Thanks again

Might be worth seeing if you can track down the registration number in the Ontario gov't boat registration records. That would probably give you all the information you need for the boat.

Perhaps we were mis-informed ourselves, but what you have is the same as what we had. I would definitely put its lineage in the Hinterholler family - perhaps the pic you posted is a refined version of the original? With a molded deck/cabin/cockpit?
Other documentation I found (alas, no drawings) listed the Cygnet as a cuddy cabined open cockpit boat, available in both fixed and centerboard versions.
Good old Canadian product in any event!
