    I'll keep you posted...clearing some space in the barn and reviewing materials. Would like to cruise north of Boston to Maine and the Cape and Islands. Thanks for all the effort in sourcing the plans!

    I am in contact with two guys with plan sets, both are willing to scan them for me. However they both travel a lot and seem quite busy, I am on it but being patient.

    They are are full plans, with materials lists I believe, but not sure on instructions.
    They are in the U.S.A
    They are going to cost me for scanning but I will post them for all as per the 28 plans.

    33 plans

    Yes, I would like a set of 33 plans, as I now own a 33:cool: It needs new cross beams, so having the plans would be a real help to me.

    Bruce.
    As I recall the crossbeams were rolled to oval section from 7"dia stock 6061T6 alloy by Alcan. Alcoa would be able to do the same.

    New beams

    Thanks Patrick, that seems correct. So far, I have not found anyone stocking 7" pipe, but I have just hit the easy sites. The southern US uses a lot of aluminum and stainless, so I am hoping to find a local supplier. There are also quite a few broken masts in the coastal areas that also might be good sources.
    I need four 7' sections, about 5"x8" 3/16" wall if anybody knows of a source.
