Re: New boat owner, Hey there!

Do you have any pictures that show the stern and deck a bit better?

No deed, title, state registration, documentation, bill of sale ?
How on earth will you prove you own this boat ?

Impossible to tell from this photo but something says to me that it kinda looks like it might be aluminum

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Re: New boat owner, Hey there!

Now I can see pics, but still horrible at ID ing boats.
Any letters/numbers imprinted in the gelcoat of the transom?

Could this be a one off build/ home finish?
interior wood working/cabinets...
rudder...
cabin top lines...

Re: New boat owner, Hey there!

The lack of a state registration number on the bow would seem to indicate that this is a documented vessel. If so there should be a USCG documentation plaque with the documentation number somewhere in the boat. You can use it to get an abstract of title for the boat. As noted above, it is also common for the HIN to be impressed into the fiberglass of the boat's transom. As with the VIN for a car, you can determine the manufacturer from the HIN.

Re: New boat owner, Hey there!

Thought it was a kit built Thunderbird class boat (size is about right). But the shape (especially the hull) are wrong.
Looking at your lower half not sure about that one. Looks like an outboard motor well (I'm not a huge fan of those, but others are).

Is the build fiberglass? Rather is it glass over plywood? The hull shape would be tough as a home-built, but it sure looks like one.

Just thumbed through some Glen-L designs to see if I could spot it, but didn't see anything close.

First thing I'd evaluate is that rudder. Shape doesn't look even close to efficient.
