Can anyone confirm this is a 420?

    I got this boat for free and yes it will be project boat. It looks to me like a 420 but it has a differnet fore deck from what I am seeing on the current 420 related websites. I suspect this was a very early model/design. There is no serial number so pre-1972 most likely. No sails so insignia is not the place for clues. The centerboard and rudder were home made and while the centre board may work, I think the rudder profile is all wrong. If anyone has info on what the rudder should look like, that would be appreciated. I have the mast and boom which are in reasonable shape. There are no spreaders or mounting holes where they would have been, which I thought odd. No trapeze or spinnaker gear. Some other bits are missing but easily replaced.
    Thanks

    Could be a collegite 420. They would have no trap and no spin. Just bare bones main and jib. And most programs never had the boat class insignia.

    Definitely a 420, Whether it was collegiate or not once you get the mast and rigging you can add spinnaker and trapeze. Have fun remodeling!!

    Actually it might be an international 420... check the measurements?
