Hi,
This was a boat that was from my area, (Cape Cod) a long time ago. (I never saw it in person). I have come across these two pictures, and was wondering if anybody knew what it might be. I belive it is about 26 to 28ft, and most likely a 1940's built design. But that's all i can come up with, any help would be greatly appreciated! These are the only photo's I have, Sorry!

Wouldn't know the boat, but it is probably acting as the committee boat for that Beetle Cat race.

Sam,

I recall seeing that boat in the late fifties at Cape regattas. I think, but am not sure by any stretch, that it was an early Huntform design by Ray Hunt, a predecessor to his Deep-V designs. See the 'Stage 1' description and lines drawing (of an admittedly much larger boat) here:

Let us know if you ever discover the answer.
