She's an all wooden BM but cant see a name or number. Looks amateur finished by the standard of the woodwork but why is it showing as a grp hull as the floor looks varnished to me, complete with wooden stringers, just like the rest of it. Needs baling out or it may not always have a floor at all!
If in Norfolk, it might have been a Cam SC or Hunts SC boat in a former life?
