These 1930's Stevens are by far my favorite wood boats. These graceful old yachts slip through the water. I'ved loved their lines since I was a kid. You should be able view the original blue prints at the Hagen library in Stockton. As you probably know there are quite a few Stevens yachts still in service in the Bay Area. They managed to get around, I saw one ten years ago hauling supplies to fishing resort out of Ketchican Ak 10 years ago. They tend to have a distinct running angle slightly bow down with almost no wake. Wow it's own pond, awsume.
