    The Rudder Treasury has the lines for a forward cockpit, outboard day cruiser, 25’ x 7.5’, drawn by William J Deed. I like the looks of this boat but can find little other information about it. It was in The Rudder, April, 1933. Any help would be very much welcomed.

    :D One of the first places I looked. :( I have run out of ideas. Now I'm looking for a copy of the magazine.

    Thanks for your response, it seems I always ask about odd or long forgotten stuff.

    She sure would be purdy! I like that hull design, very sexy with a bright finished mahogany transome. shouldent take much to push her either, What do ya think Gary 40-50 horse Honda?

    You could make a fortune chartering her as a luxury duck blind in the winter with all the river runnin you can do in your neck of the woods :D

    Maybe. :eek:

    I'm thinking 25hp would push her to hull speed. I don't know if they had 50hp outboards in '33.

    I doubt you'd need more than 10hp.... especially with a high-thrust prop (big, low pitch blades) We happily tow our 20 ton 48 footer around with a 15hp o/b so equipped...

    Suede,

    I think your right about that. If I would build one I'm sure as soon as it is done someone will ask how fast it will go. Some things are better when done slow. :)

    I just opened my mail from Mystic Seaport; :( the copy they sent is no more than I already have. The lines are a little clearer but no additional information. It’s not certain if this was nothing more than a study plan. Mystic has no other information on this design. It is amazing how little I can find about Deed, considering how many boats he had in The Rudder. I guess I’ll have to draw my own version.

    Gary :D

    8,
    You know why they call it brightWORK don't you, because its work. I"m thinking flat paint and a little bright trim. You guys will be the first to see anything.

    Gary :D
