Name that Dinghy

We have a unique sailing dinghy we inherited and are interested in knowing what it is and how to rig it. I have looked on the internet, but still am not certain what to call her.
Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Name that dinghy

<H3>Think this is the rig

Don't think it is a Dyer Dhow it has a wineglass transom.
</H3>Crabs Claw Rig

The other is the [ crab's claw rig, ] similar to a lateen sail in basic shape except there is a spar on each of the two longer edges. The sail is set pointed down with both spars angled upward. Research shows that it may have the potential to produce more power than other sails type on all but a close-hauled course.

We are looking to sell this as we are leaving for Mexico again in the fall.

Similar to this, but not lapstraked. It is 8'6" with a 4' beam. Now we know how to rig her! We will be selling her, as we are retuning to Mexico and just don't have room for her!

Re: Name that Dinghy

Aloha,
You say you are headed to Mexico. Where is the dinghy that you want to sell? Looks pretty nice. What would be the price?
Are there sails to go with it?
That's a sprit rig you show in the photo.
kind regards,

Show us more pics of the spars please and lengths of each. Should make it easier to figure out.

Re: Name that Dinghy

It is NOT a Dyer Dhow. They have three thwarts, and a lever-operated centerboard. This dinghy, with the mast so far forward, tends to indicate a cat rig, A gaff rig might also be likely. Good luck getting more information.

Re: Name that Dinghy

I'm wondering it is the F/G version of the Herrshoff Columbia?

here are additional pictures. Thought I had posted a response several days ago, but apparently not.
Mast is 8 feet and other spars are 7 feet.
Hope this helps identify.
Looking to sell, asking $425.
no sails.
Sweet little rowing/sailing dinghy!

Re: Name that Dinghy

The extra pic and mast position make it clear. It's a gaff rig, probably very similar to the Dipper on this web page:
