What boat is this?
 
I thought this might be fun. Similar to Giu's 'What place is this'... I thought it would be fun to identify boats. (What kind of boat.)

Same rules apply... you guess the boat, you get to post a picture of another boat.

I'll start. (I've obscured the name of the boat and the registration numbers and changed the name of the photo).

LOL, just keep saying that... it'll have to be right one of these times!

That's a tough one - canoe ended, cutter-rigged yawl, big-ass sprit, wood masts...looks custom.

Nope not custom, well maybe semi-custom. About 88 of them were built from the early 70's to the early 80's. The mold was made from a proven design wooden boat from the early 20th century, of which about 3,000 were built of wood.

(And actually it's a ketch.)

I believe it's not a yawl but actually a ketch, which is defined when the mizzen mast is forward of the rudder post, stern mounted in this boat.

She's got one very tight cockpit.

EDIT- Missed CapnRon's post.
