    Hello!

    I'm trying to figure out what kind of boat my grandpa use to own. The picture attached is the only one that I have of his boat. My grandma thought that it might be from the mid to late 1960s. If anyone has any idea on the make/model/year of the boat please let me know!

    Thanks!

    I don't know what it is, but the unusual feature of the clinker-style bottom, but without (seemingly) the clinker on the topsides, ( I have never seen a boat like that) might assist in identifying it.

    My guess is an early 60's Lonestar!

    I notice looking at some of the early glass hulls from the US (some of them are quite incredible !) that at least some of the Larson boats had that lapstrake bottom, but plain sides. Also had "splashes" of gelcoat colour here and there. Might be worth looking into.
