    Does any one know where to find a copy the plans of Arno Days' "Great Cove 21"? It was featurerd in Wooden Boat in June 1995, but I have come up dry looking for plans.

    Maybe the maritime museum in Searsport could help. I assume you've asked the crew at Woodenboat already.

    Another resource you shouldn't overlook--not to replace Boatdesign, but to supplement--is the WoodenBoat Forum. I believe there are some gents on there who knew Mr Day personally and worked with him. For sure if they themselves didn't, they know someone who did.

    I may even have a set of molds for that boat, but I have to ask a friend if the design is the one were discussing. I'll get back to you. Are you anywhere close to Bangor?

    I am in Kennebunkport and would be interested in your molds if they are to the Great Cove 21.

    thanks

    Let me check then. I have to contact my friend. Was this a round bilge stripper? Also, if you gave me the beam I could measure the midship mold and see if the addition of about an inch of cedar would match.

    It's a multi chined outboard skiff.

    No, mine is round-bottomed. Sorry to mislead you.
