Please help identify this boat

I bought this boat and had the hull repaired. I even sailed it a few times so far this summer. No one seems to know what kind of boat it is.

It has a swing down centerboard and is 17ft long. So far, I know it isn't a Thistle.
The sail logo is NorthWyn. Not much help there.

Photos are attached.

Isn't that a Whitehall Dory?

After comparing the Cape Dory and Whitehall Dory photos on their respective WEB pages, I think the Whitehall comes closest. I'll pursue that.
Thanks Jeff and Hawkeye.

This boat is definitely not one of ours (Whitehall Rowing and Sail). It is a smooth skinned hull while ours are laptrake. It's buoyancy chambers are much smaller and the centerboard well is entirely different. The exterior hull shape is also quite different. The cut away keel appears to have been done in order to ad an inboard motor. The woodwork is quite a bit chunkier, appears to be varnished mahogany rather than oiled teak and there are no custom bronze castings showing our company name or the model name.

Does it have a hull number embedded in the gelcoat finish or any other type of identifying marks? If not, then I would say that the boat was probably built by an amateur builder who may have built one or two.

Visit our web site to view our boats at www.whitehallrow.com. You will notice that the hulls have a high, upswept stern and high bow.

Best regards,
Marie Hutchinson

Thanks for the references and kind words. I'll check them. It's very docile sailing.
