    Hello, I'm trying to identify the make, model and any other useful information about this particular boat and was wondering if anyone here could help me. Thank you for your time.

    If the hull is 5m500 long and 1m600 wide then it is very close to two boats hull's I had.

    Mine didn't have the small chine below the gun whale.

    The hull apparently creates a vortex which gets it on the plane quicker. The hull is very stable due to the cathedral shape and the deeper center is supposed to make it less bumpy in a chop. Not designed for high speed cornering but turns well at lower speeds and is noisy when there is swells and you try to get to the fish quietly.

    Besides being bumpy it handles rough water quite well if you have a wet deck that can dump the water fast enough.

    What do you want to do with it ? (Besides taking it on the water ;))
