Help identifying boat

Unfortunatly this is all I have right now. Should have some better pictures in a couple days. No hull number or any details other than it's about 12-14 feet long.

Any ideas?

It may be a Fireball. I used to own one in the 1970s. Mine had a spinnaker chute in the foredeck but otherwise looked a lot like your photos.

As I recall, Fireballs had a squared-off bow.

Yes, you're absolutely right, the bow was squared off.

It looks like it could be a Chrysler Man of war.

It's hard to see the hull and see how much freeboard there is but the deck & cockpit resembles a Jet 14

Kinda looks like a MFG Sidewinder, especially with those twin inspection ports.
Sidewinders had a 19' 6" keel stepped mast with rigging and an aluminum daggerboard and rudder.
You can find info on them here: SailMFG Sidewinder

Good luck and let us know what you find
