Please help me ID this 23' pre-72 fin-keel sailboat!

Hi all,

I'm a long time lurker, and tried to attach a picture of my new project, but don't have the requisite two posts, so I'm including a link to an album below. I paid $700 for this, including working 7HP four-stroke, so I figured I'm not taking too much of a financial risk, at least upfront.

What I'm currently finding mysterious is ... what is it? The owner didn't know, his daughter got it off a guy, who got it off a guy...

The main (which is seriously raggedy and is a lovely tea-color) has the South Coast 23 logo, marked as hull 35. There is no HIN on the transom, and no tag near the mast. The state has no record of the registration number in their system (that reg number must be really old!)

It appears to be a fin keel from my inspection of the aft (free-standing rudder), but I'm not super knowledgeable here.

It measures exactly 23' bow to stern on the deck. What makes me think it's not an SC 23: It doesn't seem to have the same cockpit shape or setup as the ones I've seen online. Also, I thought Alberg was more of a full-keel guy, and I likewise thought the SC 23 was a full-keeler.

This leaves me a little confused about where to get started plugging into a community. My last boat was a Bristol Caravel, and there were lots of people and resources -- this one I just don't know what it is, yet!

Anyway, thanks for looking -- lots of pics of interior and exterior (interior gutted) at the link below.

^ replace dots with . above


p.s. Advice along the lines of 'sell it, QUICK' is welcomed as well. : )

Looks very similar to a South Coast 22'.

If so, a previous owner added a through-cockpit rudder. I'm not sure why one would make this modification, though. Also, The bilge-area has a bunch of thick bolts in it which make it look like it's not a swing keel..

But, I agree that the lines do look more like an SC 22 than an SC 23.. Confusing.
