Not sure, but does look familiar doesn't it...... Some kind of kit-built scow from the 60s I would guess. I will have a think if I get the chance.

But what about this:

Really looks very lovely

Best wishes

The Mudlark is just down the road for me and I've been so tempted since I first saw about 5 weeks ago on the local Gumtree. Of course I can make perfectly valid arguments for buying...grandson...but I have so many projects to complete...get thee behind me Ebay!

On a similar (well Antipodean, junior..) note - I sailed a New Zealand Pea that someone had brought down to Hamble around 1966 which was being mooted as a lightweight version of a New Zealand design. The guy who brought it down had built it in the (then new) stitch and glue and to a 12 year old it seemed fast and light. I've not seen one since - anybody ever seen, heard or know about them>
