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.

Brian...HIN is hull identification # and is usually found on the upper right corner of the stern of the boat molded into the fiberglass. If you find it there...come back with a posting.

It would help if you had some specifications, such as LOA, LWL, Beam, draft, displacement, etc... There really isn't much in the photo to give an accurate idea of size/scale.

If the boat was USCG Documented, you could look up the documentation number or the boat name in the USCG database, and it'd say who built the beast and what kind of boat it is.

There are two boats listed as Windspiel and one Windspiel II, in the USCG Documented Vessel website -

http://www.st.nmfs.gov/st1/CoastGuard/VesselByName.html

Could one be your vessel?
