There were two hulls made in the late 70s early 80s by a subsidiary of 'Fletchers' the real boat people they produced a couple of fibreglass hulls, one was the Arrowshaft, an off shore race boat hull and another that was similar in size and profile to yours but a ski /day boat type - the name eludes me at the moment.....

That sounds hopeful....there was a "bench seat" covered in leatherette included, it didn't make it into the pic.   I should check the dustbin and see if there are other clues I have discarded.

PS Just remembered there was a hatch cover of sorts with a rail on it, which I now think could have been the ski towing gizmo!
