dinghy identification

Hi,
I just aquired this dinghy to teach my toddler some basics. I will be repainting and making a new sail. There are no identifying marks on the boat anywhere. It is all glass with a molded liner. 8 feet long. Only wood is the trim and blades.......Any ideas what it might be?

I have actually looked at a lot of small boats and that one is a new one to me. Any holes where a manufacturers tag may have been removed? Perhaps when you sand and strip it for painting you will find something. I like the little raised deck for the mast box. How big is it?

Does it have a HIN number on the transom? If so, the first three characters are the Manufacturer's Identification Code (MIC). You can enter the MIC and get the Manufacturer's name at Manufacturers Identification Code (MIC) Database

Thank you for the help! The boat doesn't have a HIN number anywhere. It definitely came out of a mold at some point and I believe the gelcoat is original. I've been around sailing dinghies and other small boats my entire life and have never seen one quite like this. Hopefully someone will come along that recognizes her.

Can you get a better picture of the sail and its insignia on it? Or is that from another brand and put on it to make it work?

I will take some additional pictures later this week. I'm away until wed. It is the rig and sail that came with the boat. The graphic is a skull and crossbones. It looks as though someone might have stenciled it on after the fact. I honestly do not know if the sail or rig are original. I'm planning on making a new sail and beefing up the rig arrangement.
