Made and sold through Speedmaster years back

yeah, looks very much like a Youngblood mono (similiar to the boat in my avatar). I purchased my Youngblood mono's through Tidewater back in the day.

 

They came:

31.5 inch length (3.5cc/.21)

38.0 inch length ((7.5cc/.45ci - 11.00cc/.67ci)

40.0 inch length (13.00cc/.80ci - 15.00cc/.90ci)

 

I'd be curious to see an image of the bottom

This hull had a terrible surface ,so now its sanded nice and flat as level as can be.
Also cut the deck off and going to chop the freeboard 3/4" to give it a sleek dragboat look.
Will sand the inside now and reinforce with carbon.

wow. At this point you may want to consider carefully replacing the engine rails.

 

I'm curious, what did you use to cut deck off with? A moto-tool?

Yes David a dremel with cutoff wheel,and yes better replace the stringers ha.

yeah, I have another original (brand-new) Prather deep vee hull that I've been planning to do the same- ie. cut-off deck, trim free-board lower, then re-build new deck using plywood bulkheads and sheeting.
