    Default Does anybody know what this might be?

    .... aside from remarks like "compost" or "firewood"?

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    A free trailer to put your new build on.

    GP 14 looks like it. Like the one Art brought to the MASCF this year. Maybe he can confirm.

    GP14..... I used to own one. They were imported to a small shop outside Philadelphia in a knocked down state and assembled there.

    Yup. GP 14 circa 1967.

    We have one. The GP14 is a very fine 14ft sailboat. It ghosts along in almost no wind at all. I like the way it stiffens up when it heels to the chine. Crisp and responsive, and you don't have to go swimming.

    But I don't think it's worth a 100 % restoration. That's a LOT of labour.

    Better to build from scratch.
