Hey all,
im here mostly to see if anyone can identify my new boat.(excuse my bike) Ive been sailing relationally all my life, but usually only on vacation every summer growing up. I used to have a force 5 that i rescued from certain death, but finances forced me to sell her after only two summers. Since ive been searching for something similar in size and came across this beauty for only a few hundred bucks, ready to sail, needing only cosmetic work, which i plan to do this winter. However, there are absolutely no tags on the hull, except for the number 888 on the stern, other than that all i know is that the mast is a Proctor. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to SailNet! I'm sure someone can help you identify her.

It is hard to say precisely what that is since the photos are a little distorted and you don't have any pictures of the transom or sail insignia which could help. Offhand that looks a little like a Flying Junior or perhaps a Chrysler Mutineer, although I doubt its a Muntineer since they did not have a spinnaker launcher.

You might also measure the length and beam which would also provide additional clues.

As Jeff_H suggested, we need to know the length of the hull to make more informed guesses.
Looks kinda like an O'day Widgeon, but that is a wild guess.

I will get a transom pic , and exact measurements asap ive been very busy with work and i keep leaving my tape at the job ( im a carpenter) It has an open transom, though the holes have been temporarily sealed up by the previous owner, they are just rubber flaps and the screws come right out and i plan to fix the holes that were drilled. as for the sails, they are replacements, made by North, the mainsail only has the number 6 on it. the spinnaker is tellow and blue and i believe is sporting the number 233 (ill have to pull it out to confirm that) ive had very little time to play with her yet, and have only had it on the water twice, but the does sail quite nicely. thanks for the leads ill check those out and see if anything matches my boat.

mostly referencing images on google, so far none of the suggestions match. I know its not a mutineer, because i almost bought one a while back, it seemed bigger, and had a cool little cabin with a hatch i believe, more of a daysailer, this is definitely more of a racer.
