Location: Narragansett Bay RI Dollars to Doughnuts that's Sunfish daggerboard. Nothing in the Suicide rules mandated a transom, it was an experimental design class so someone who wanted a canoe stern could have built one. Or something someone found and modified according to personal prejudice for his or her own amusement.
In any event, it looks like a potentially cool boat, I hope there is enough left of it to make repair and use an attractive possibility.
Location: Saugatuck,MI I only had the one photo of a Suicide to compare with.

He talked with some people from the area and they remember seeing it sailing on the lake about 50 years ago, but that's all.
