    Hi all, I would like to pick everyones brain and ask if you know what make and model this little boat is. She is a 19 foot sailboat with a drop keel, Fibre glass hull and plywood topsides. Previously called Annie and I believe she was something to do with Calshot (boat club perhaps). If anyone can identify her, or know anything about this one, I would love to hear about it. Very bad choice of colour though.

    I could snaffle the Thor figure next to it and rename the boat HMAS Hammersley from the Aussie series Sea Patrol.

    Looks a bit Robert Tucker-ish to me, if that's any help.

    The cabin/cockpit appears to be nicely executed, but doesn't look like it belongs on the boat. Home built cabin on an existing hull?

    The handrails round the cockpit do seem to be out of place and there are two big holes cut into the hull on the quarters. Some of the fittings on the deck seem a little DIY hardware shop stock. I'll look into the Robert tucker designs. Thanks.

    The guys at Tucker-design reckon it looks like a Matilda, and by the length it would be a Matilda 20. The layout looks very similar but this one has a fibre glass hull instead of a plywood one.

    Matilda 20

    There were a number of versions of the Matilda. But this does look like a version that was built of FG in Canada, by the folks best known for the Aloha line.
    See if the boat shown in this link looks like the one:

    I think in the main they are the same, there are a few minor differences, I think mine has a longer coachhouse roof, so that the front panel is shallower and it only has one long skinny window on all three sides. But I guess that was down to the builder at the time. I like it better the way it is.
