    I'm restoring a speed boat, I have no idea of it make or age but doing a search online brought up the same style boat advertising as a Shakespeare???. The first pic is of my boat (white), the second pic is of the one I found advertised as a Shakespeare (red). I'd really like to know the manufacturer and a rough age. Any help appreciated

    They seem two of a kind, so if the red one is a Shakespeare, that is what you have.

    Yeah that's what I thought but when I looked through their boats built I couldn't find one that matched my one or the one advertised as a Shakespeare, that's when I started questioning it. I found this link to the history and on the LHS a list of models made, I cant see mine in there.
