What type of boat is this?

Does anyone know the make and model of this boat?
I need the year also, but that may be asking too much.

Re: What type of boat is this?

Somewhere on the transom there ought to be an HIN molded into the boat. That number will give you a lot of info, incl a manufacturer's code, year and hull number. If there's nothing there it will be older than early 70s, or home/custom built. Looks in good shape.

The seller cannot find any identifying info, and I think he looked thoroughly. I'm hoping someone here will recognize it.

Most likely a fiberglass sailboat.

Looks like a poweboat inspired sailboat! It is pretty tragic looking!

Re: What type of boat is this?

If the registration is current go to https://jc.activeoutdoorsolutions.co...ds/boatData.do and download the database. You should be able to search for the registration number. Otherwise call the Georgia wildlife department and ask them. That info should have been given when the boat was registered.

Re: What type of boat is this?

Good idea, Stumble. I pulled the file for his county, but it isn't listed. He probably let the registration expire.

Thank you!
