The picture was taken in 1966 or 1967. This was my dad's boat and it's me at the helm. The location is Djibouti (Eastern Africa) where my dad served in the Air Force. I don't know the make of the boat. French maker maybe? (back then Djibouti was still French territory).
I would like to find the same boat and restore it.
The closest thing that I can come up with is the Vanguard Playboy "16" from Peninsular Fiberglass Products. This is the 1960 brochure. In their 1958 brochure the boats had fins, much like a smaller version of the ArenaCraft Barracuda. I hope that this might help.
