Seems a bit like a Gans Grandi, length would be then 520cm

JB,
Very similar, but l think the cockpit is much further aft than the Grans Grandi.
Rgds, Nick.

My tentative guess: an early McNulty Kodiak

Trylon SeaHawk by the look of it, used to be able to hire/buy the mould and self build.

They had a tendancy to go through any wave on the bow rather than over it and the original seats were quite deep pushing your knees up firmly into the deck. My memory was the seat seemed a long way back

Agreed - I was trying to remember the name, but SeaHawk sounds right. I last saw one in about 1988. The far back seat and the long submarine bow are the key things I remember!
