unfortunatly were going to need a larger picture , the one in your avatar wont expand to see what you have , also some dimensions of the model will help identify it , jon

Sometimes I am just too clever for my own good  :}
 
Let's try this one... at least it looks like it could have some sails eventually!!!!!
Based on the "Dancer" could it be this one? https://sites.google.com/site/svdancerabeking/

What is the length?
Looks like a IOM or a Marblehead depending on the length.

Sorry couldn't find that,"widget"on that site?
Could the designer be Charles Detriche? As he has a similar Iom.
