I have bought this boat as a project to get myself fishing both on estuaries and at sea. I have had three possible make of the boat. i cannot currently find any way to identify the boat.

i have attached pics of the boats.
The three options are a Dorado, Supa Dolphin, Or Acecraft,which have been mentioned.

After reading many horror stories of water filled boat hulls and delaminated and rotten transoms.I am prepared for the long haul should this be the case. many have said i am a crazy taking this on. But i suppose we all have to start somewhere and on a budget its a start.

Its not a super dolphin, this a picture of my old boat which is a super dophin.

Check the forward consol, its much steeper and the bow is completely different if you check at it from the front

The boat was made by jergens craft. It normally came with a screen and hand rail on the top. I think it used to be called the dorado

Angle on the console looks too low for a Dorado. It could have been changed though.
