Looking at the more detailed pictures and the identifying albacores page ( http://registry.albacore.org/identify/Skene ) I'm going to go with Henry and say it's an early Skene. The hull number is in the right range and there are obvious similarities. So even given the differences (eg no transom scuppers, metal centerboard) I think its a Skene from the late 60s or early 70s.

I didn't know Skene made boats with metal centerboards, but I guess they did. Seems like they changed the boat substantially for the 4000-6000 range.

Thanks for all the replies. Based on the numbering ranges for Skene this must be a really early model. That's pretty cool.

Thanks again,
Andrew
