Bobbin Dinghy - Research

I have inherited a Bobbin dinghy ~9 feet in excellent condition which was made by Pearson Bros in Arundel Sussex UK perhaps in the 1970's before the firm went out of business. Only about 1200 were made. Jib and mainsail are a dark tan.
Does anyone know a bit more about these dinghies ? Specifically, is there a known collector or community in the USA? Is there a boat works which might be familiar with these? I am in NC.

Re: Bobbin Dinghy - Research

Collector? Fiberglass dinghies are collectible now? what boat did I miss?

people have been looking for information about that type of dinghy for many years and many places online here's a discussion that has some sail dimensions.

That dinghy reminded me of one my father had when I was a kid. Thanks for the flashback.
