Art,
Sure wish that I did. I have print photos somewhere but nothing digital.

The hull cross section looked a bit like a wine glass w a fat stem (wide enough to accommodate the engine) and almost pointed at the base (keel). The valve cover gasket was about level w the WL. She turned very flat and sharp. Had a rudder almost as big as my Willard. Compared to other boats she was very easily driven at the difficult speed of about 12 knts. Very level running too. Soft chines much like a lobsterboat down to 8" below the WL. The construction was called "compoglass". Douglas Fir planking w FG on both sides. Light and strong. If I ever come up w pics I'll post them on Interesting Boats.
