They are the same, except Waterford only had a front seat, while the Oxford had front and back seats. Your deck looks like 1961, except no glove box in center of dash, but you have extended deck inside gunwhale like a 1961. Did you have the original plywood floors when purchased? If two sets of holes across the beam, then Oxford; otherwise Waterford. For 1961 there was Oxford model only, then replaced by Niagara model in 1962. Have not seen a 1961 brochure - they are hard to find.

Maybe. I also know MFG would make changes in the middle of production runs. Since no glove-box, maybe yours was made with the newer deck. 1960 is very possible, and probably most likely.

Tracking down how an old boat was supposed to look can be tricky. On mine, I had the benefit of memory, as my dad had four different MFGs while growing up, and my two are from the same time period.

However, even memories can get it wrong. To restore my 1962 Edinboro, I relied on pictures I could find on the Internet, along with the 1962 sales brochure, plus what I could remember about the boats from that time period.
