I need Help identifying a sailboat

I have a small sail boat that I can not identify by manufacturer's name. It is sloop rigged, 13 ft long, with a 5 ft beam. All fiberglass construction with a plywood transom. The dagger board and rudder are made of teak (I think) The mast is an Ian Proctor, 21 ft, aluminum mast, 2" Tear drop shape, anodized gold. The rudder rides on two pintels. It is held in place by a stainless steel spring clip. It has molded seats with voids beneath and drain/fill plugs in the forward corners. There is also a void - with drain/fill plug made into the bow which creates a small storage platform. It has thick rubber molding along the chime where the deck and gunnel meet. (Originally the two halves were stapled together)

I will attach photos as soon as I figure out how.

Perhaps someone can suggest a web site with good photos of small sailboats that will help me identify this.

Thanks for your help.

Update: Here is a link to some photos of the boat during overhaul. I will post more when I can get them.

Once you get a few more posts you'll be able to post a link; putting up photos works much better if you open a (free and easy) account like Photobucket and link to your pics from there. Be sure to paste the IMG CODE into your post and the picture will be part of your post, rather than just a link to it.

Your description is very generic and will match literally hundreds of similar boats, but it's likely someone here will know it once the picture is up.

Welcome to Sailnet, btw.

Kdowney—

If you read the POST in my signature, it does mention how you can post photos by using a photobucket.com, flickr.com, or picasaweb.com account.

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.

Guys and gals

I moved mk11blue's hijack to it's own thread:

Carry on!

SD - maybe edit your post above and move that info over there? Thx.

Close but no cigar

Morganpaul: The boat is similar in size and shape. However, mine has an open void under the bow deck. There is no recess in the seats for the plank behind the dagger board pocket and the gunnell is wider than mine. Chances are it was made by the same company. There are a lot of similarities. Such as the rudder mount. Mine is exactly the same. It also looks like the mast is the same Ian Proctor Metal Mast.

Thanks for playing!

Here are the latest photos of my lil boat.
