    I bought this boat and trailer for $200. It comes with everything. But I would love to know anything you can tell me about the make and model if possible. There are no labels, decals, logos or any other identifying information on the boat. I have supplied two pictures with hopes that someone may be able to assist me. Any additional info would be greatly appreciated as well.. and

    Yep Osprey. The distinctive treble chine confirms the sail logo is correct for the boat. There have been various interior layouts, you can probably find out more from the class website latestarter linked.
    It's typically raced with two, one on a trapeze, but three crew is an option and as you know there's plenty of room.
    It's classed as a high performance boat, and those big sails will require good handling in a breeze, but you should find her much more manageable than the much faster modern equivalents.

    Awesome!!! Thank you so much. I see the logo on the sail matches your knowledgeable eye! Now at least I have a starting point to work off when I’m looking for parts etc.

    Welcome to the club of newbie, or veteran, sailors who have found an outstanding bargain for a boat to enjoy......or to frustrate your best intentions. Go for it!
