Looks like some kind of Shrimp boat.  The deck house has a very American look to it.

The US kit manufacturer Dumas Models 'Jolly Jay' trawler is the nearest model I can think of kit wise,
been around for 30+ years and was available in different sizes.
JJ is not the exact boat your photographs depict, windows are different etc, but a similar US 'shrimper'.
Hope this may be of help, regards Paul

I agree. Three to five coats of matt varnish ( and a new lower hull! ) and that would be a superb weathering job.

Hi
Thanks for your helpful comments,any more will be gratefully received.
I plan to incline the wheelhouse roof at the front upwards so that I keep the internal height parallel. Do you agree?.
I need to investigate the idea of rebuilding a shrimp boat


Thank you for looking and your helpfull comments

Location Jacksonville Florida!

With postal charges around 13 its not going to take much more on the bid price to get you into the realms of paying import duties. Last time I ordered from the states my item with delivery charges was a shade over 23. The taxman cometh in the shape of the postie wanting 6 odd for duty payable.

Anything over I think 20 levies the import duty, vat and a delivery charge added from the post office/courier.

Hi Brian.
 film quote"Whats with all the negative vibes man" seems we have someone else that needs to go to "specssavers" as the blurb on the page says.. 
  "No additional import charges on delivery"    O0     maybe I have been lucky that in the nine years I have been shopping worldwide only once have I been screwed by the customs man but that was six years ago for a corgi RN SAR seaking from usa.   {-)
