I believe this is a Columbia Contender 24.
 http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_ID=491
There were a number of models based on this particular hull but with a different deck and coachroof. Islander 24, Islander Bahama 24, Columbia 24, etc.
(It is thought that they are all based on a wood prototype, the Islander Catalina ??,designed and built by Joe McGlasson. )
I have included a link to a photo of one I found on sailingtexas.com.

See what you think.

Thanks for the reply RB.

Yes ... at first, I too thought of the Columbia Contender.

This boat in question, however, has a lower coach roof as compared to the Contender and
the tiller placement/cockpit arrangement is different.

I'll check with a few Columbia BBs and see what I can dig up.

Yes.  See what you mean.  Tiller in a different spot also.  I know this was before HIDs, but it's amazing there is no other builder identification, or clue anywhere.

I posted my information on the CYOA forum and had a few responses ...

Members there said, yes ... it was a sailboat  ;) ... (although someone thought it might be a 1987 Yugo with the special air induction propulsion option  ::))

The thought was that the tiller placement was wrong for a Columbia and the shear line and entry reminded someone of Carl Alberg designs, however, still couldn't find a 'match'.

Still searching ....

Try boatdesign.net.  You may get a few more snotty comments, but I've had at least 2 other mystery boats identified by someone there.

Hey RB ~ We've got a match!  :o

She's an early Fin Keel Mkll Corribee!

How she got here is the next piece of the puzzle to discover!

Wow!  Good work AJ. I'm just as curious to know how you finally made the match. Did someone else help?  It does look like the one I have listed here, but I thought your boat looked a bit bigger.  There were so many Corribees.  Have you been to the Corribee site? Do you have a bigger copy of that photo? It's a nice one.

RB ~ At your suggestion, I posted on BoatDesign.Net ... in less than a day, a member there responded with the match!

Yes, I've been to a few of the Corribee Sites and I am trying to learn all I can.
I also joined the Corribee Yahoo Group. I am sorry to say I haven't a better image.

I am in the process of tracking down some history ... once I gather more information,
I'll post more info.
