    First off Im new to the forum and would like to thank everyone in advance for any input or help you give !! I have an opportunity to buy my first boat!! There are 0 badges , plates, or manufacturer information at all! Boat is registered, but says nothing about the boat maker etc. The only pics I have are these two attached. For a boat from the 50's/60's " Im guessing " looks pretty decent ! It will most definitely need some TLC but a project boat is what I'm after due to funds and wanting to create something cool.. I was told it might be a type of Glasspar but he was only about 50/50 . Any help would be much appreciated !!

    Also if this is in wrong section sorry to mods!!

    Don't know what it is, but it is definatly a piece of history. Just remember...... when restoring or building a boat, it is what you make it. Just take your time and get others input and opinions, do your research. It can be a fun project or a real pain in your back side, and not to mention a drain on your bank account. There is a lot of very intelligent members here that can provide you with very useful information. That's why I'm here. Just because I'm a custom builder doesn't mean I know it all. Live and learn...... ask guest ions and learn more. Good luck and enjoy your restoration. Make it a fun project, not a job

    Gawd, by the styling it appears to be mid 50's to early 60's at the latest.

    Probably not, but there is something about her that is making me think "Tollycraft". I did a quick google search & couldn't find anything similar, so who knows.....
    Good luck with her & have fun!
