    I am restoring a 1976 Balboa 26 and considering enlarging it to have the space (increased headroom, room for inboard diesel, etc.) of an 8.2 deeper draft model. Have been trying to get copies of the 26 and 8.2 prints. Specifically, I am hoping the prints show the location of the cg and cb (I suppose I could go through and measure every square inch of the boat and calculate it). Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have already posted notices on sailnet.com, sailboat owners.com and wrote the design firm (manufacturer not in business).
