    Was cruising thru the woods last week. In the middle of nowhere found a boat on a trailer with a design I'd never seen before.
    Fillet knife fine deep stem goes down and back far. Forms into a shallow keel.
    Chine line starts high from the stem like a spray rail / lifting strake, then down mid ship to make some serious reverse chines to aft.
    Single inboard, rudder, prop and shaft removed.

    Anybody familiar with this design?

    Starting forward to aft from road side.
    Out here in the woods, That is as close as I want to get without an invite.

    You can just see the forward keel as it comes off of the stem is still a sharp edge.
    Supported on the trailer with near vertical bunks.

    Then the trailers main bed / bunks disappear under the hard chine.

    Drive gate was closed and the home was a bit up the driveway.
    Next time by, I'll leave a note in the mail box.

    Perhaps an Albin ?

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    Some older Albins could be called unusual to strange. The later models were darn rite humble.
    It would be hard to insult the Albin brand with this creation.
    That fish design must mean something in the last picture.

    The fish looks like some sort of sticker someone placed on it other than the builder...

    I think she might be a Dusky from the 80's. To me that's a nice looking hull. Looks stable and dry.

    It looks English. (Not a stab.... growing up sailing in Holland each country had its own recognizable style)

    i would guess a Mckee craft. It has some Boston Whaler features for that era and mckee had a habit of sort of copying whaler at the time.

    Thank you for your reply
    McKee made big boats. Single Inboards?
    Always thought of them as Butt-Busters as old B Whalers.

    I was thinking of this also.
    I found an English commuter in the U.S. back country many years ago. So I know that this idea has potential.
    Thank you for your comment.

    I think it's a rare North Atlantic Cod Buster, 24'.

    Something that sounds good to me!
    It just came to mind. Thought it sounded good with that little fishy on the side.
    It’s a kin to me and my old 13’ Whaler
    Nic name , North Atlantic $&!$ Buster dubbed by my friends way back.

    Thank you for your thoughts.
    Any mfg or company names I could look into?

    I'll have to trek back down there and try to get the land owners attention.
