What Model of Boat is This?

got a free sailboat a couple days ago,

about to start a full restoration from top to bottom on the boat,

I have no idea what kind of boat this is.

its between 18-20ft it has a Centerboard.

rather spacious cabin with 4 full berths / 2 forward (split v berth) and two quarter berths that run underneath the cockpit seats, separating the forward berths and the quarter berths is a small nav station on the port side, and a small galley on the starboard side.

any help with figuring out who made this boat what model it is etc would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Looks like an O'Day 19 to me, but I have never seen one with the aluminum toe rail. Maybe that was added later...

I appreciate the suggestion but no it is not a ODAY 19, I have had a few ODAY'S and this is not one.

I think you're going to find out quick that this will not be a free sailboat. But I commend the storage people for wiggling out of the disposal fees.

Over the years I have had everything from trailerable sailboat's to ocean going yachts.

I know what goes into a restoration in terms of time and money as I have restored many boats in the past.

you sound like the boater who buys a boat through a broker and pays someone to maintain it for you.

Wow! That was a cheap shot. You don't know CelestialSailor well do you?

Hard to know your experience without you telling us.

There are no free boats. It's just a matter of money up front or money later. You could get a boat like that with trailer, sails and an engine for about $2500... ready to sail. If yours doesn't have a mast or sails or engine with it ....it was more expensive! Just sayin.. have fun anyway...

I did not mean it as a personal jab and you are quite wrong about my boat experience. So without embellishing my experience too much...
1) Built a Van da Stat seadog 29 in Canada in 1976 at the age of 22. 2 year project.
2) Built a Roberts 34 (Steel) in Ca. 1986. 2 1/2 year project.
2b) While building my Roberts 34, helped a yard amte build a Roberts 434.
3) Found a Olympian 34 abandoned in the Barstow desert in 1989. Completely gutted the interior, including most of the bulkheads and rebuilt her from the ground up. 2 1/2 year project.
4) Complete rebuild of a 1966 Tartan Blackwatch 37. Including tearing up all the decks and re-coring her. 1996.
5) Found a floundering Ingrid 38 and totally rebuilt most of the interior, all rigging (44 wires), engine upgrade (Yanmar 4jh from Volvo MDII) and set sail for Hawaii before losing the boom in tropical depression Boris and Douglas and having to turn back. 2008. 3 year project.
6) Abandoned after the owner passed away a Hallberg Rassy 35. A 2 year refit which includes rebuilding the engine myself, complete rigging, electronics, plumbing, all interior. 2 year refit. Sailed the vessel to Mx. where I will now take her to the Marquesas and beyond.
So yes...I know there are no free boats. There are a few members here on CF and that are participating in this thread that can varify most of my claims.

Re: What Model of Boat is This?

I have rescued a few boats in my time. I wholeheartedly believe that rescuing old boats is noble. But honestly... I think it may be time for that one to go to "the big boatyard in the sky".

Holy crow Celestial, did the owner choose those colors on the photo John Heatlys434? It looks like a box of crayons!

Re: What Model of Boat is This?

Rescued our Camper & Nicholson 58 Ketch - Hurricane IVAN whacked & holed. I've also rescued Laser, Sunfish, Tornado, Cape Dory 10, several others.

I haven't seen one for a while but it could be a Ford - yup, they built boats too. Have fun & good luck

If you have a place to DIY, especially indoors, restoration is easy & therapeutic. I have given away some small boats to folks lusting after anything - just for the material cost. Here are a few of my projects.
