Re: Can you identify this boat?
That powderhorn sheer reminds me of the Silhouette boats.
Just read Terrys' post.He/we is correct.
(reproduced from the Hurley Owners Association)
One of the most popular small cruisers of all time, Bob Tucker's diminutive mini cruiser arrived in 1959 and by 1967 had tempted over two thousand customers. Early (Mk I) boats were plywood (hence the chines); most Mk IIs were GRP while the Mk III was moulded by Hurley Marine to a radically revamped design. The central ballast stub was removed, draft increased by 5in and the ballast ratio improved from 26 to 37%. She also carried 43% more sail. A fin keel version was available but the vast majority had twin keels. Her two berth accommodation was still cramped (the Mk 4, built by Varne Marine, added two bunks) but her low cost, good looks and predictable handling have won her many friends. All we have on the boat at the moment it this picture. However, the Silhouette has her own Owners' Association, details of which are here.
Do it,do it,do it,do it,do it,do it,do it,now!
This boat was built with ten thumbs.No fingers were harmed in anyway.
