Default Anyone know what this boat is?

Saw it on the lake last weekend. Looks pretty rough. Not usual to see something like this on the lake.

I'll bet it was cool, back I the day. If you find out who built it let us know.
Thanks,

Viking made wooden boats. I don't know if that's what it is but my first thought was Viking.

I did look at some old Viking pics and I'm probably wrong.

That looks a bit like a Rybovich with the cutter bow. Close though with the 5 portlights.

That looks like an old egg harbor to me. Not 100% though

You may have nailed it. Here's a 1968 Egg Harbor 43 SF/Conv. Note the same forward leaning window divider on the side, the level deck at the bow, the straight stem, the low chine at the bow, 5 irregularly spaced portlights, etc. Good job.

Egg harbor was my guess. I’m not around this style boat enough to know them well. Hopefully catch the owner outside one of these days. Mainly curious about the purpose and intent of even bringing a boat of that size to the lake. It’s a bit lake, but no lock access to salt.

Yes, it's maybe a Pacemaker, and that's a model of the Egg Harbor line. But I don't think so because the Pacemaker had a clipper (curved) bow unlike the straight stem shown in the OP's photos.
