This is probably the first version of the TYPOON DAYSAILER, built by Naugus Fiberglass. (pre-Cape Dory and which we have labeled NAUGUS)
It has an open cockpit and no cabin or cuddy seen on the later versions built under the Cape Cory label.
The image here is from the sales literature and we know that at least one was built.
