Any information about this dinghy?

hello guys.

i just got given a free dinghy. was nasty and i scrubbed it reall good and its in GREAT shape! only the oar locks are missing.

i can not find any information about it online. but it is around 8ft fits in the bed of my truck. looks like there is a slot for a daggerboard and what looks like a possible slot for a mast way up front. its hard and looks like molded plastic. it says O'brian on it. any info would be appreciated.

is it a sailing dinghy?
i doubt its expensive but any prices come to mind on how much they cost?
are they good?
is it worth it to try to find a mast for it?

thanks guys im going to go look it over agian see if i can find any other names or anything.

thanks
John
