Recently bought this on my side of the pond and wondered if anyone recognises it can tell me the make at all? The undersides of the seats are chalked with A Challands, Foreman, T Bridge Works.

That is a nice little boat!! Could be an old kit boat glen-l or something to that effect. Not sure who would have built it otherwise. Reminds me of an old Hi-Liner. They were made up here in Massachusetts in Ipswich MA a few towns over from where I grew up.
Nice little boat ride you have there.

Thanks Jim, is in the process of a repaint, revarnish and a few holes in the hull being fixed. Hope to have it on the water soonish. It's 14ft by 5ft 2ins by the way and the hull has a central keel with 2 similar 'bilge' keels to assist in turning.

That looks like a Glen-L Zip to me. Check out the photos at Glen-l.com and then click on customer photos and then click on customer archives.

Looks very similar, but the Glen-L has a less radical 'tumblehome', which isn;t really evident from my pictures..
