    Picked up this 24.5 by 8.5 center console with a full inboard v8 and 1.1 gear. The hull has sharp entry and goes flat. Has a full keel that kinda looks like a shamrock. Ive completed rebuild from the deck down, stringers, bulkheads, transom, and decks. Im wondering if anyone has seen anything like this before? Im also excited to see how the boat handles/performs.

    Like that , yes. The 60s - 70s Aquasport flatbacks. But they didn't have keels. That shoebox top cap/liner joint reminds me of the boats built around New Port Richey. There used to be many small builders up there.
