Some time ago i bought this dinghy and that owner also didnt know what the brand or type was. The mast has 2 positions, depending if you sail with a jib or not. The sail has an peace sign in it and it has an espoused rudder. If anyone knows please let me know. The one with the right awnser wins an afternoon sailalong with itWink

Probably a Shadow,  how long is it?  I suspect the sail insignia was done for fun!
