STRUCK OUT IN SAIL AND DA

 so this is my last try to ID this hull

 

I just bought a hobie holder 14

and this hull came with a 2 for1 deal on this unknown make of 12ft f/g sailing dink

 

the 12 ft boat has oar locks and is double molded [floor and tanks]

so it is not a one off 

 

has dolphin painted on it may be a clue or not

 

I suspect it is not a racer or daysailor but a dink

as it is lite and narrow so eazy to haul on deck

and should be an eazy row boat with it's round bottom on the pinched stern

I always liked a bigger dink to row faster when we lived aboard at dinner key

 

and decent sailor with a mid teen ft mast with the standard 3 stays/chainplates ect

 

one odd thing is the mast step is a round pin kind of looks like a door stop

so the mast could rotate but is missing the shoe to match or the boom

so that is just a guess

Does it have a serial number etched into the stern, or manufacturer's plat attached somewhere?

Try asking over on the forum associated with SailboatData.com.  Randy seems quite good at identifying obscure boats.

I like it. I'll bet it rows decently.

What is it?  That's easy.  It's a VOR 12.  The Volvo behind it gave it away.
