What type of boat is this?

I have inherited this boat...I will be picking it up in a week and was really curious what she was. She is about 19 feet long, not a lightning or a flying scot or a scow. She does have a rounded/flattened bow, the hole in the deck is for a spinnaker pole storage (not a hunter). Would love to solve the mystery. Many thanks for your help!

Looks like a Fireball and the shoot is for the spinnaker,

Re: What type of boat is this?

If you go out in much chop you might want to rig a velcro/sailcoth cover over the spinnaker chute to keep the water out. The cockpit can get ... damp otherwise. Wet spinnakers are also harder to hoist. Fireballs can be a handful in a breeze. How good is your trapeze technique?

I'm thinking fireball too, 17'. A Fireball was my first they're capable of pretty good speed in some pretty nasty conditions too.
