Any information about this boat is greatly appreciated. (Like basic dimensions, date, builder, designer, or anthing thing like that). Only have this picture. They must have been somewhat popular.

Gosh, where to begin! :) I'll get together a list of things for your boat info sheet and post it here in a bit.
This is a very common and formerly popular boat!

Thanks very much my friend.  I'm not really as lazy as it might seem.  Just ignorant.
In this particular case, I guess it really helps to have a better knowledge of the French language just to do an effective  search. I don't even know the word for 'Dinghy'.
Actually, I do have a little cheat sheet for French-English sailing terms which didn't seem to help. Cheat sheets only go so far.
Hope things are going well with your restoration and everything else.

Really great.
