sailingdog IIRC, HIN's weren't required on boats until long after this boat was built.

PBzeer Have you checked for a HIN (hull identification number)? Not sure about UK boats, but most have it on the transom, top right corner.

sailingdog Without a better view of the topsides and cabinhouse, it is very difficult to say who might of made this boat. The fact that it is a full keel is not much help, given the suspected age of the boat.

More information on the type of rig, weight, draft and such would make narrowing down what make of boat it is much easier.

What kind of boat is this?

I just bought this boat - got it cheap, honestly she's a wreck and will consume hours of my time in restoration this fall and winter. The plan is to remove the aft mast, move the cockpit further back and stretch the cabin back towards the new cockpit. And, preferably, get an aluminium rig to replace the glass fiber one that's there now.

However; I have precisely no documentation on the boat, other than that she's 36 feet and, hear-say, was built in UK sometime in the 60'ies.

I realize my photos don't show much above the deck, so I'll try taking some more pictures and add to this thread later.

If anybody knows anything about this type of boat, I'll appreciate any information.

Kind regards,
