Anyone know what this boat is?
The hull looks alittle different.

And look at the keel on this thing

It looks to me like an M-Class BINGO, a 1975 vintage Marblehead, 50" LOA.

Since that is Greg, from our club, I can tell you for certain it is a Dumas Bingo. It is a 50/800 class boat from long ago.
And the winged keel was an add on to a Graupner kit, as I recall.

While I think the winged keel is an add on, it looks more like a Robbe Topaz - a boat that hasn't been available for a while (wish it was though). talks about one, with a little help from a web translator.

Yes, thats a Robbie Topaz. My father built the sloop version Koh-in-Noor. The wing screwed on the fin and was only for "higher wind speeds". My fathers boat had running lights, and an inboard electric motor. Not a very good performing boat but very nice looking.

Just to clarify, the wing was a Robbie factory option.
