I am trying to identifty this sailing dinghy that my father is photographed on.

Its a terrible picture for trying to figure this out, but this is what I have noticed:

1) it kinda looks like a Sunfish, but the mast seems to be installed behind the forward combing, which I have not been able to associate with Sunfish where the mast is in front of the forward combing. Are there clones of versions that match this?

2) the colorful sail with its stripes, and the way it is being rigged suggest to me that it is a Sunfish sail (oceanic lateen).

3) the mast is on the left of the photo. The black pole in the middle of the photo is likely part of the dock. At first glance I thought it was the mast but it is pretty far aft for that, and is centered on the end of the dock.

4) Any idea? Sunfish clone? Some other similar dinghy?
