Great boat as I have had the privilage to go on board this former 120' FP ( freight passenger) boat. Boat has the original teak type wood floors and well maintained. Used as a charter vessel out of Cananda. Seen the original blueprint drawings for the ones that were built here in Bellingham as the local museum has full nset of drawings. It is one of the future prodjects on my long list of to dos.

Does the museum sell copies of plan sets? If so, I will make contact with them.

Yes they do. Need to contact the Whatcom Museum of History and Art, go to the archives section to make contact. They can get you what you need. Contact Jeff Jewel there. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Nice people to work with.
