Sim 1964 I am very certain that if you post those pics and location to the guys at sailboatdata.com they will have an answer to your query in no time. Anyone who is not familiar with the site would be advised to check it out. They have a wealth of information. A database second to none. Just the site for anyone buying a used boat.

Hi Sim1964. I read the post at sailboatdata.com and I think the guys there will come up for something for you. Randy Browning, I think he is the site owner, is very knowledgable. I think your recent inclusion of the builder info will get results. good luck.

This is not a 420 or Flying Junior, they both have centerboard trunks and are not as sleek. This has a daggerboard ahead of the seat, I thought it might be a Vaguard 15 because of the side deck joint, however they have a bit of an after deck behind the cockpit and this one goes all the way to thr transom. I don't believe it is a 505 either, because there is just not enough rigging and the 505 has a flair to the bow, It also does not have this much fiberglass on the inside. See http://www.int505.org/
It is not a Precision 15 either, nor a Windmill The former also has a centerboard trunk and the later is narrower and flatter sides. Wayfarers, Snipes and the Taser others have hard chines and centerboards. It's a nice looking boat, and almost new looking. I believe it might be a 470 or International 470, perhaps not rigged for racing.

Okay, it is an old 505. The link to the builder's match has already been posted, no question about it.

cheers,
Nick.

Re: Can Someone ID this Dinghy, Please ?

We have the answer! (thanks to the English Classic Dinghy site: www.cvrda.org - these guys know everything)
It's a Wildfire, and Ian Proctor design.
"It was Ian Proctors second shot at a hybrid dinghy - a normal dinghy hull shape but with a keel. Peter Milne also had the same idea with a boat called the Vulcan (beam me up Scotty)..... the idea being that you had a hollow dagger board that you weighted one afloat with bags of lead shot on long ties (hence the two bins that you can see in the picture." I knew about the Vulcan and it's hollow dagger/drop keel.


many thanks to you all
