hello and what is this boat?

First, hello - long time sailor - no formal certification, just lotsa hours at the tiller. hobies, lightnings, ravens, cabin cruisers up to 35'. Mostly long island sound out of Stony Brook and Setauket Yacht clubs. Now in South Miami area near Matheson Hammock.

Friend had a sailboat on a trailer just collecting rain - all it needs is a little TLC and a mast (more or less).

Can anyone tell me what this might be? (attached photo) LOA (without rudder) is 13'4" made of wood core glass.

Previous owner appears to have used a Hobie 14 mainsail - has a jib too.

Thanks in advance.

Mike

First, welcome to SN.

Your picture looks a bit like a Snipe but a Snipe's length is more like 14'6".
Are there chain plates for attaching stays/shrouds for attaching the mast?

If the boat was built after 1973 or so it should have some kind of plaque with a serial number on it. Any other distinguishing marks, emblems of any kind? Center board functional?

A mast from a Snipe or even a Hobie 14' might work for this boat.

will take a closer look, and yes

THanks for the welcome.

Appears to be a split aft stay, with rather modest chain plates for stays and shrouds.
Could not find a plaque yet - i'll have to crawl inside and look more carefully - I haven't tried raising/moving the centerboard yet either. Well, at least it's smaller than a Lightning (about 19').

It could be the plaque/whatever is covered by several coats of paint/fiberglass paint/whatever.

The missing mast would step into the hull via a 6" or so long U-channel plate with what seems to be two bolt holes - there is no thru-the-deck support. i'll get another pic and that will give abetter idea of posiibilities for those of you with knowledge - hope to be able to get PICS of various mast steps, including the hobie.

More Later

Mike

If this was in the North East or Canada, I might venture a guess, a Nutshell.

I owned a Lightning for 3+ years and it sounds like a similar mast step setup. The 'partners' (where the mast goes through the deck) is usually filled up with wedges or shims of some kind.
The split aft stay also sounds like my old Lightning which was racing rigged. You could apply tension and induce mast rake which is good for heavier winds. At least we know it has chain plates however 'modest'.

Don't get too worked up looking for a plaque or serial #. At this point decals, logos or other info might help pin it down.

I still have no guess as to what model or make sail boat you've got there.
