A little info, the Miss Ann pictured above had her bow modified by an owner. Her original bow was much more blunt.

Deerleap

I used to go to Long Beach Marina and drool at Deerleap, here's her website:

http://www.mvdeerleap.com/

She's got the fantail, bow shape and cabin structure that embody the styling that fascinate me. I ride a 1948 Indian Chief m/c, love Stinson Reliant aircraft and have always been fascinated by 20's and 30's styling. Born too late to see or ride in a dirigible.

Predreadnut those are great pictures. Certainly a lot of good design material for any model. Thanks for posting. Pete

1/4" = 1 foot and will be right at 30",twin screw with a diesel sound so far.

E-challanged thats a really nice boat. The Deerleap is just the sort of boat I'd like to have for myself. Man the Navy sure knew how to mess up a nice yacht. Glad to see that it's back to original now. Pete

You look at some of the prices at that dealer and you'll see some really outrageous money for some boats. He has always been pretty high priced. Pete

oh I'm sure! he even states that the entire thing needs to be scraped and rebuilt holding onto the fittings and one bulkhead with the serial number or something..

poor boat looks like it was pulled out from the bottom of a swamp somewhere! id be surprised if he had a legitimate tittle sell it! that's..that right there is drift wood! lol!
I can go down to the Richmond yacht basin and claim any number of decent boats right now for little more than the arrears dock fee!

mien gott! the man is selling a ratty trailer and a serial number for around 0.5 of what it would cost me to commission and build a real steam launch!

This would be a good place for any of you to post your favorite old boat pictures. They would always be great for reference especially to superstructures. I'm still looking for some bottom pics of any old yachts to get an idea how they were built below the water line. Pete

I found one picture that gives some idea how an old yacht looks below the water line. This picture is posted by Predreadnut and it shows the bottom pretty well. Need some more views though. Pete

I think this thread should be made a "sticky" so it doesn't get sucked up in the whirlpool of old threads and disappear. Craig has gone to a lot of trouble to gather all this info into one place and there IS a lot of info here that is extremely useful to those of us who like building the old Woodie boats.
There is a ton of info out there that still has to be added to this thread and another ton of pictures that will eventually come to light that will be important to future Woodie builders.
Every year that goes by these yachts become more obscure and the information about them tends to slowly disappear. This thread will go a long way towards preserving this information and will be useful to book writers, researchers as well as modelers. It's already full of documentation on several of the "good old boats" and is bound to accumulate much more.
We need a place to save all this documentation and a sticky would be ideal for that purpose.
So in the interest of restoring the real boats and that of model makers in general I would like to request that the sticky be authorized by the administrators for the benefit of the hobby in general and the old Woodie yachts in particular.
So what needs to be done? Pete

Yeeeaaa! WE got our sticky. Now we won't have to search all over the place to find it. Good work Craig. Pete
