About 25 years ago my father owned a small 12' fiberglass sailboat (Great South Bay, Long Island). I loved it; he sold it many, many years ago. I would like my daughter to sail same model boat now (me too again:-)). Can't remember design name or company who made the boat. Please help ??? Please see attached pictures I was able to find in my albums. Thanks so much.

From the pictures it might be a Ghost 13. The shortness of the front deck may not be right though

You're right.   It does look similar.

I'm guessing that it is a Kingfisher.

The old boat is a Skimmer "SEA GULL" (or Sea Gull 12) Built in Connecticut, Greenwich, CT if I remember correctly, company also know as "Aeronautical" (parent company?) Skimmer was building boats from late 1960's to early/mid 1970's.
The "Kingfisher" guess was semi-correct, since I beleive they were the same basic design and built at the same time range, but the Kingfisher was built by Atlantic Laminates (another dinghy builder at that time, and many of their models were copies of the Skimmers) in New York.

Most (if not all) Kingfishers that I've seen were light/medium green for both deck and hull, Skimmer Sea Gulls were all white hull, aqua/blue deck.
