The dinghy is 15 1/2 foot with a proctor mast.

wierd. what it isn't is any of the american Scow classes, as they pretty much all have bilgboards and twin rudders, not a single centreboard/centre rudder.

My first thoughts was an M-Scow but its a long way from home if it is.
Could it be a Norfolk Punt? Most of them are much longer but I believe there were some built around 16 feet.

Ooo, I find that strangely attractive.. Even though it is made of wood, clean that up and it would be a cert for next years concours prize, surely..

That looks a very good possibility!

Do you think there would be any way of getting any history on it? The only id it has is the plate on the mast plus the name "wild Oat" that looks original

I would check the dimensions to confirm what the boat is, the Sonatina brochure dimensions differ from your original listing (14'6" vs 15 1/2 feet), and your boat has a stern deck which the Sonatina does not seem to have as standard.

Do you have a sail? The sail mark would perhaps give other clues, as would the sail number assuming he sail originally belonged to the boat.

If it is a home built boat, you would probably struggle to find out much info as it is unlikely that there would be a class associate.

Check out  http://www.cvrda.org/ - http://www.cvrda.org/ if you havent done so already.

I think I know what it is, but only after asking David Henshall...... Wink

The sails are missing, (I'm on the look out for a set) so i'm unable to go down that route.

Just had a chat with my dad about about what ideas you guys have come up with, he doesn't seem to think the design is a home build, he said the design is to intricate.
 
I'll pop down tomorrow and take a few closer picures and measure it up properly and post them.
 
Thanks for your help on this

Ok. I think it is Tempo. (that was one of my early guesses but I discarded it because the length was listed incorrectly on the page).

Designed by the father of the Sonatina designer hence the similarity.

Strangely, just found an article about it in a book I just got from eBay - the Dinghy Year Book 1965!

I like it.
Well worth 30 quid (for materials) of anyone's money.
Probably get a new set of sails for a tenner.

after the event I know, but I did say Tempo Scow when I saw it.  I have been tempted by one in the past. 

http://world.tempo-scow.org/historisches/

Get it on the water, come join us at the cvrda, and bring it to our nationals at Hunts at the end of August.  I for one would love to see it out.

the same, but different...
