Looks a bit like a Veron Marlin but they were 36" long.

I think it is the Aerokits SeaNymph similar to the Sea scout but shorter in length.

The motor looks like a Frog Revmaster 4-8 volts 8 watts
Been produced from at least mid 1940's

Hi All
The  Aerokits Sea Nymph was 18" and did not have the piece forward of the windscreen.

That Aerokits advert puts me back in time to the first boat i built which was a Sea Urchin, electric power but oh so miserable, the next was a 36" crash tender with an ME 1.5 diesel which was later replaced with a clapped out hp60.  It didn't half shift in a straightish line but didn't like to turn in one direction.
