    Hello, I have been lucky enough to purchase a plywood boat but do not know the manufacturer or designer.

    It is 16' and was originally a half cabin design, the cabin was removed by the last owner who has stored the boat for at least the last 10 years.

    I wonder if any of your members would recognise such a boat?

    Attached are a few pictures.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards
    Mark Kuhn.

    Can't put a name to it, but I'm confident it is quite old, maybe 50 years, and the hull won't handle the chop with any comfort, in beautiful Hervey Bay. Make sure it is structurally sound, and fit some foam buoyancy for added peace of mind.

    If you are going to restore her, you might find a change to Teleflex steering worthwhile. It looks as if she has the old 'washing line' system which will be more tricky to set up with those aft decks.
