    obviously it's not very well built...probably leaks like a sieve...needs painting...and being wood is a bear for upkeep. Drop it off at my place and I'll save you a trip to the dump....

    With that transom it is a dory skiff of some sort, a very good design if I say so ( I have one too).

    Get a copy of Gardener's _The Dory Book_ and you'll probably find something close.

    Looks like a California surf dory for long line fishing. Practical but not a thing of beauty other from that of a work boat point of view.
