What is this boat?

Ive been trying to figure out what this boat is for a few months now. Ive searched Yachtworld and havent seen anything like it. Closest ive seen is a Pearson Electra, but theres enough diffrences in them to rule that out. It has no HID# or any kind of plates inside.

Since the Columbia salvage went the wrong way, im going after this one. Its been in the same spot for about a month or 2 now, and before that was tied off to the back of the big trawler in the graveyard. Kind of thinking I should have towed her to my mooring back when she was afloat.

Looks like a very sad one. Do give it a good home.

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.

That looks a lot like a Kittiwake 23. Check out http://www.kittiwake23registry.com/ for more photos and specs. If it's an older Kenner Kittiwake made before they put hull IDs on the transom it should have a brass plate with the hullnumber on the forward side of the mast support beam, but of course that might not be there anymore...

TX you hit the nail right on the head. The pictures of the inside are 100% the same. Thank you for that. I havent been into it far enough to see if that plate is there, but will be going back out to her soon for some mroe pics and will check then.

This is another send-up thread like the last one. Nobody who responds has ever been heard of before and they conveniently show up with all the relevant details on some half sunk boat. Eventually he's gonna come up with a photo of the Queen Mary in Long Beach and can't find the owner.

Check out the Hull ID Number (HIN). It's usually on the transom. The first 3 letters are the maufacturer. Get them and then search for the Manufacturer's Identification Code (MIC) at: http://www.boatsafe.com/links/index.htm
