Looks like a "Pedro" insignia.....from a small cruiser that either looked like/share mouldings from the "Seahawk" design....try google to check it out.

Sami, found picture of Pedro sail insignia looks like a sombrero, picture on ebay looks like is as something underneath, but could be wrinkle in sail.

Could be a Seahawk. A 17 foot trailer sailor from the 60s, I think they were made by Moores opf Wroxham.

I think you guessed right. The bilge keel Pedro seems to have come from the same molds as the Seahawk, but with a smaller, masthead rig, very similar in size to the one described here .
Not exactly classic dinghy stuff but the very informative Seahawk website is here: http://www.seahawk17.plus.com

Eventually found a picture of a Pedro with the sails up! Looks like it. Someone got a bargain at £1.04
