Nope.

DeFever designed and built by Oviatt Marine at the Tania Yards.

In fact Grand Banks sued Oviatt on the name as they said it was confusing the market. So later Grand Alaskans were called simply Alaskans. And the brand has just been bought this year and will be reintroduced as Alaskans.

Wifey B: Maybe next year she'll get you a full model of your boat. There are a couple of guys who do them. I can only imagine the costs.

Your 2D model is a very nice present.

There is a lot of interesting reading and some controversy and confusion about the origin of the raised pilot house design.



This thread talks about it:
Tony Fleming: A great professional & human "Venture".

This little snippet gives Defever credit for designing all of the Grand Banks Alaskans:
