The guy who owned it before me said it's a trawler and probably made by billings or veron and could be Circa 1960's

Length 17 1/2"
Width 3 1/4"

Does anyone know

It looks very much like the Anglia which is a plan from Hobbies. I have one made by my father from the free plan given away in their annual (1957 or 8). The re-released it recently enlarged for RC.

designed for bread and butter construction and plywood s/s.

My previous post should read 1957 or 1958 (it would appear that I accidently created a smiley)  :embarrassed:

Nice looking boat. The lines on some of the older vessels are very nice indeed.
