Your old boat John, looks like an Oyster Smack to me but there I could be wrong, your forward mast is a bow sprit and the registration is definitely  London, that,s as far as I can help so you will have to take it from there.

Yes John that's another nice photo of the old Girl, she lookes even more like an old Oyster Smack to me in that one. I don't know if you can withdraw the Bow Sprit on one of those but it looks like you can on that one. On modern yachts with a bow sprit they built a lot of them where you could pull it inboard due to greedy Marina's taking the length of your bow sprit as part of the length of your hull and so charging you a lot more. On the old Sydney Harbour Skiff's that I once sailed the length of the hull would be about twenty foot and the bow sprit would be about fifteen foot long. Now if that were to berth in a modern Marina you would be charged for a thirty five foot hull which is a lot of money.
