    Hi, I have admired Ben Seaborn's 26' thunderbird for for some time .
    There was at some point a 32' rendition of it call the Pacific 32 , I believe .
    I am looking for info on that design , I know that chances of finding any are slim, but I thought I would try here .

    I did find this web site , it might be of interest to some .

    SolomonGrundy I'm not crazy...

    Ben Seaborn design

    I have a T-bird here in PT, I'm currently building a trailer for it. I have seen one of those 32'ers hauled out here, although it was awhile back. I've always wondered how that design would play out as an aluminum hull.

    I am sure it could be done , but plywood seem like the perfect material for a simple light weight hull like that.
