Need Help Identifying this Dinghy . . .

I would appreciate any help on this.
Just acquired a new (old) boat that included a dinghy along with the deal. I'm posting some photos here and asking if anyone can identify the manufacturer/model from the photos. There's several layers of paint from different owners, and I could not find any markings or identification as to maker. I believe the oarlock sockets were added later. Seats are glassed in.

Length - 7ft 3in (87")
Beam - 3ft 9in (45")

Many thanks

Re: Help identifying this dinghy

Many thanks to all for your responses.

The dinghy is structurally sound. I plan to strip the paint, repair a worn-through spot on the top of the gunnel and then repaint. However, my purpose in trying to ID the manufacturer; it appears there was a rubrail or trim piece on the top of the gunnel (evidenced by the unfinished fg matting, and holes evenly spaced that were obvious attachment points for the trim). Anyone have any ideas on how to find suitable material to replace that trim? The top of the gunnel is rounded, which would indicate the missing trim had a rounded base that neatly fit/conformed to the shape of the top edge.

Re: Help identifying this dinghy

I just Googled "rubrail" and "rub rail" and came up with an enormous number of choices. I would imagine there is something out there that you would like.

I don't know if it is worth pursuing the original manufacturer of the dinghy to see if they have any original replacement rubrail material. I would imagine they are long out of business or no longer manufacture your dinghy.

Re: Help Identifying this Dinghy . . .

David - that was too easy. Not being sure of the dinghy's age, the manufacturer route seemed the better. But, I'm hitting the web for rubrails.

Thanks

Mark
