Title: Hull ID
Post by: green-boat on October 17, 2011, 08:35:25 pm
I picked this glass hull up from a guy who bought it in a thrift store on your side of the pond. Neither of us can figure out who made it or what model it's supposed to be of. There are no identifying marks on it. Any help would be great. Thanks.

What are the dimensions? Not 48 inches length 11 beam by any chance?

Sorry about that, brain fade.

Dimensions are 55" (1400mm) long by 9-1/2" (240mm) wide.

The one I had thought of was Kingfisher Patrol boat by Models by Design.  The hull form is similar but not exactly the same but the dimensions are somehwat smaller.

So Id rule out that thought

Absolutely no idea exactly what it is (sorry!) but it definitely looks modern to me - the square anchor recess is not usually found on older vessels. Probably a small warship/coast guard craft of some kind with a hull form like that. The shape of the transom is quite distinctive and might help with ID.
