Obliviously the registration hasnt told us anything? Hmm...

Probably the only guy on this page watching Flipping Real estate programs to comment...

I have to imagine one of them has an ingenious idea or knows it...

Who told ya it was a DE ??? spray some oven cleaner over the paint then you might be able to clean off the paint & see the plate/tag.

It's probably a "downeaster" built in NC. This is a typical boat found around Albemarle sound/Pamlico sound and the Outer Banks. Jamie Chadwick of Chadwick Custom Boats has the molds now. He is in the Jarret Bay complex in Beaufort, NC.
