Merlin 1453

Merlin 1453 is currently rotting on the foreshore at Shaldon Devon south of Teignmouth, looks like it would still be a good restoration. Can you tell me what type it is?

According to the year book it's a Proctor 12 design, built by Wyche & Coppock in 1952 and named Io.
It should be worth restoring as it's a type and age popular with the London clubs on the Thames now.
