    Hello: Hoping someone here can identify this hull if other than one off homemade. It was reportedly used by a fire department in NH some years back. Narrower than an Amesbury with interior configuration similar to, though not same as a Duxbury Dory. Slight bullnose. Tried matching lapstrake pattern to known hulls as well, but nothing seems to fit.

    LOA +/- 15'6", 5' beam.

    Appreciate any ideas!

    No idea myself but would like to point out sometimes a bullnose is done to keep under maximum lengths - 16' or longer gets higher tax rates. So look for a 16 footer that might look similar.

    Good luck.

    Makes sense given the length, thanks for the tip.

    The Stur-dee carries another 15" of beam at this length and slightly different lines - is there a discontinued model I'm missing?

    Might be a Steiger from Bellport long island.
