I still say it is an A Class
They are not restricted to length but are typically 2 metres
That is the road I would go down Larry

I think its an 'A' class, I bought one just like this on ebay recently, when shown on Mayhem I was told it was an 'A' class, possibly a hull made by Bob Underwood.
Check out these threads.

Mine has 7 pieces of removable lead in the keel!
Hope this helps.

Hi Larry,
           I doubt it's an 'A' class as the 'A' boats have removable keels it looks to me to be an R6M and probably built by Bob Underwood I have a hull near exact same I'll take some pictures as soon as I can to show you how it's been made into a schooner.
