I beg to differ - apart from having a (rubber?) strip fitted around the hull/deck join, I think those hulls are the same. All the deck and wheelhouse features are common to both, including the dropped deck amidships, and the overall "feel" is the same. I reckon Andy has a Seaspirit.  :-))

Thank you all. Dave found it first go.
The example I have is very many years old and supplied as three separate parts and no holes cut in the deck yet.
I doubt that the current seller is the original producer.

..... looks like someone has resurrected the old Hydrafibe / Mayflower model hulls - they were excellent kits / hulls!

( catalogue photos later..... )

I agree, built one in 1989 for a customer.

Thanks again and great info Martin.
I suspect someone has had a go at trimming the hull on this and taken too much off the stern as there isn't much depth. The deck is untouched and has a faint line indicative of where to trim to.
I don't know if I will ever proceed with this as I have so many models to build and this was not something I was looking for.
