Hello, I would like to identify this boat.  I am told it was designed by Philip Hughes and was built in lunenburg Nova Scotia in 1954.  I can not confirm that though.   Her name is Sheba.

Thanks for any help.

Wow! Very interesting. Nice looking boat. The hull looks perfect.  If it's from 1954, I assume it's wood, but looks like fiberglass. It's not a glass hull by any chance, is it?  Can we assume that tree insignia on the sail may apply to this particular class/type? Any idea what the overall length is?
Thanks for posting.  This could be a tough one.

Even though this might be a 'drive by', my interest in this has been aroused. So I may do the rounds to see if anyone knows anything.
