Bill Garden boats

Greetings all
i'm refurbishing two Bill Garden boats. If you have any background information or stories on either of them I would like to add to the histories I am writing.

1967 44' tri-cabin cruiser (wood)
1983 42' salon cruiser (some called it a Formosa 42)

I haven’t seen Tad Roberts post here recently but he knows a lot about Bill Garden’s designs. He is on Facebook pretty often and often discusses Garden designs.

15 years ago, Mystic Seaport museum reached out to the Willars Boat Owners for general information on the Willard 36, a Garden design. Here's a link to some of the information on him they compiled. Mystic has a library of his designs. Copies can be purchased from them

Good luck
