    I couldn't believe the comparison to your drawing.
    This is my new baby that needs a bit of work.

    8knots A little on the slow side

    helps me think I'm NOT a nut job ;)
    Many thanks for sharing her with us. Keep us in pics on your re-fit project.

    Thanks, 8knots.

    Well, as for her make, (grinning sheepishly) anybody recall this thread?
    http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2839
    :D She is the 1963 42' Eldrige Mcinnis that was posted. Check the drawing on that thread.

    I have some pic's of her interior and some work that was already done.
    I will see her first hand next weekend if the weather permits.
    I hope to have her at my place by the end of February.

    Here are some interior pics.

    I like her Fisher! I like the rounded glass in the wheelhouse, a cool treat you didn't have to pay for. I picked up Beebe's "Voyaging under power" the other day at a used book store for $3.59 Ha Ha what a score. He rambles on about the need for hand holds in saloons and so on, your new toy demonstrates this clearly!
    Don't forget your FIRST wife or she will scuttle her ;)

    Plans

    Do you know whether the plans for this type of boat still exist?
