15ft 60s clinker

The blokes @ the Rathmines boat shed have acquired this partly constructed 15 ft boat .. built by a recently departed man ... and his wife who sort out potential experts to finish the build ( she is in her 80s)
The designer is unknown but the couple of shipwrights @ the shed think it could be a kit ?? Was there such a thing in the early 60s?
Planks are solid timber 5/8 thick - 9 per side .. transom solid 1 1/4 thick
Is there anyone who might be interested to run an eye over the boat ?

Have had another look at this boat - the Rathmines Boat shed blokes have taken it on as a project.
The latest story is the boat is a Wells built boat to a Goldsborough design . They have acquired a 350chev thats new and has full marine conversion including a dog clutch which is in the process of being fitted . I will try and attach some pics from today
