My brother recently picked up this boat and needs help identifying who built this boat. The hull is fiberglass over wood. I have a few ideas but looking for some help.

How old is it and where was it found. Can you see the planking inside? Planks, or strips about 1-1/4"?

Not sure of the age the boat is in Florida. I was thinking maybe a Dyer. Planks look to be 1-1/4” there is no paperwork on the boat.

I;d call Dyer (Anchorage Warren, RI) and ask if they ever built in wood or had a wood plug. I know they were all F/G in 1955 or even b4

Where in Florida is it?
Wondering if that might give a clue.
Pretty boat with a great engine. Worth the effort and will be a head turner more than it is now freshened up.

Any documentation numbers ? I can't read what is written on the prop. Can he backtrack through the local prop shop?

That sure looks like FRP to me. I know the transom is wood ( overlay ?) but it appears the rest of the Hull is translucent, to a degree. It’s definitely a Dyer, and by the looks it could be a very unique one. With a perfect power plant, if it’s running right .

Looks like someone put a deck and cabin on an older hull. Is there a USCG documentation number in the aft bilge under the cockpit?

Looks like a dyer ,but the picture of the propeller and rudder shows the keel just end the dyers I have seen have a bronze shoe from the end of the keel aft and ties into the strut and under the rudder
Hope to hear what the boys at dyer have to say
