    Must be 50 years old, or close to it. You are in W.A. ? Looks quite like the type of thing made by Steber, the clinker style, that is. But it could be some local brand.

    hi mr efficiency,
    thats what i thought it was but there are no identifying marks anywhere on it but i guess i will settle for the fact that its a Steber and leave it at that.

    I'm not sure it is Steber at all. I think there may have been small clinker boats built in that era by the Pride/Carribean outfit, they were probably the biggest glass trailer boats builders in the land at the time. With what appears to be tumblehome at the stern, it must have come out of a split mould, and possibly taken from a plywood clinker predecessor. Cruise-Craft also made such boats, (clinker) and switched to glass in the 60's, and most were rigged with Johnson outboards.
