All Optimist dinghies are knock offs in a way. They are made by many builders all over the world to a set of plans. If your boat measures to the plans then it is an Optimist Dinghy if not it is not a legal boat to race in that class. As you say it could copy but not a registered class boat. Ontario yachts may have built a class Optimist but I can’t find any record of that. Ontario yachts builds Etchells class boats to this day call Dirk at Ontario yachts he may know the history of your boat
