Help Identify this Hiliner

Robert Henry sent in this picture of his fathers boat, taken in the early 60’s.  Bob is looking for help identifying the model and finding plans.  If anyone can help, please send me a message.

1960 Fleetstar went in today for a shake down.  Only a few leaks.

My 1961 Seastar went in so I could swap the trailers.  Thought this was a good time to take a few pictures.

This Fleetstar resides in Newbury, MA.  It is owned by Jim Bowes (author of this site).  It has a 55hp Suzuki motor.   Paint scheme is not original.  Prior owner removed the swoosh trim while refurbishing and decided to not put it back on.  I liked the look of this pattern so decided to leave it as is.   This triangle pattern was common to other boats of the era and I think it looks great on the Fleetstar.

This one was listed for sale in CT back in 2008.  Other than the missing windshield it looks great..
