Wide beam Marblehead hull identification

A friend of mine is currently restoring a Stan Witty Windwing 10 rater which is approaching completion in our workshop.  His next project may be a hull he bought on the Wirral, via Ebay  about 5 years ago.  I believe it's probably a Marblehead, as it's 50 inches long but it's unusual in that it has a 15 inch beam.  Construction is longitudinal internal planks and diagonal external ones.  It looks as though it once had an internal handle but it has been cut off.  The deck opening has been extended but now significantly overlaps where the mast step appeared to be.  As a design I would guess it dates from around 1970.  We did try to identify it through the VMYG when it was first acquired, but without success, apart from one member who thought there may have been a very wide beam design by D A Macdonald, but we have been unable to trace that.  If anyone has any suggestions we would be interested to hear them.
