Yes, a Foil. Designed by Arthur Cooksey, about 1960. Was £25,5,0. in 1960, for a kit from Ian Audsley in Kent. I have a picture of one with the number 205, so a number sold. As I recall it was only about 7'6" long, and, as Yachts and Yachting said "Construction is almost indecently simple".

That's pretty!! Certainly a lot nicer looking than my Cape Cod Frosty...

I guess it's designed so the parts fit on an 8x4 sheet...
