I thought for a moment that there was a new species of meat eating hens developing but actually this is a relisting from April. (See Dronskie's post on here...viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6292 )

Might be worth a speculative PM to the seller?

Sunfish...maybe , or may be his earlier and smaller brother the sailfish (same design but shorter ) both were made from plywood before going "plastic" and the early Sailfish had no cockpit (interestingly enough Cortland Heyniger had submited for a lifegards order for a rescue surfboard, had been turned down -in 1944!- and went on to cut a centreboard case , add a rudder and a lateen rig from a traditional indian canoe made by Old Town)
He called it the sailfish , marketed that in kit and it was a huuuge success....the sunfish was meant to be a bigger and better sailfish
