    The picture I see looks like the fore-deck of a small power boat.

    If you want more than that, you'll need to post some more pictures.

    If you're in Kent WA, there might be some HIN nunbers on the upper RH corner of the transom. If Kent UK, I don't know.

    If you're the one sanding the deck, you need to power wash the boat first so you grind as little dirt as possible into the finish.

    The finish work comes last, after all the stringers, transom and other stuff has been fixed.

    Be sure to check the bottom for any dents or humps and such caused by un-correct trailer support.

    That's hull form looks older then the HIN requirements in the USA, so she probably doesn't have anything embossed on her butt. She appears to be late 60's, but if you look in the upper right corner of the transom, you can eliminate the guess work over the HIN.

    No idea, but there's somebody with a '66 'vette who's been waiting for one. I'm sure of it.
    You could call her Yvette as well.:D

    right!...it looks like one of those things George barris or the coop put together in the 60`s ...my original thought was that it was a 1 off custom job from the 70`s but the lines from the windscreen look more reminescint of the late 80s ...or maybe a guy that was ahead of his time ...ill bet one of these guys that's been in the industry forever `ll be able to look at it & find some clues as to when it was built ...there might be a tattletale in there somewhere that they`ll pickup on...thick plywood or a shape that showed up in some era or somethin
