Anybody know what this is?

So what is this ? - other than another potential black hole to pour money and sweat into...






Thanks

Pete

Thanks Mr Jones.
It certainly looks like the Ensenada. However, all the pics I've been able to find shows boats with a single window on each side. This little boat has 3 opening port lights on each side.
Were there different variants of the same boat?

It does look like the Ensenada 20 but the Ensenada 20 does not have the stub keel.

Woops, looks like it's an RK20 which is the same boat basically.

Thanks guys.

I might be able to get this essentially free. Is it worth spending time on? I'm not really looking for another boat, so I would fix it up, play a while with it and then let it go - essentially wondering if I'll be able to get my repair cost back out of it.
The keel does not look in too terrible a state, but I'm sure I'll have to drop it to clean up. Walking around it the hull and hull joints also looks to be intact. No rudder or boom, but that might be inside - I've not been on the boat yet.

Any clear uh-oh's known that I should look for

No boat is free. Look around at similar boat values and then make that decision. I bet it want be that difficult a decision. Mtcw..

Well if it's free you don't have a lot to lose unless it's missing parts (especially sails). If you need to spend more than $500 to get her going safely I doubt you will recoup your money. That said it's easy to get that tied up in getting the trailer road worthy.

Re: Anybody know what this is?

I'm with AT. Unless it is DIRT cheap, it is a hard boat to sell, so if you want to break even, you have to be cheaper than dirt. For example new sails will cost double what the boat is worth but won't double the value of the boat.

if you don't need it, and aren't looking for a project, it might not be worth your time.
Then again, I want to adopt every orphan boat that crosses my path, which is NOT, BTW, a sound retirement investment strategy.
