Anyone recognize the 18' Crowninshield Knockabout design on page 60 of issue #190 (May/June 2006)? I though it might the Camden Class, but it's a bit longer and clearly a different design. That, and the Camden Class is on the adjacent page. Thanks.

Matt wrote that article and might know more. Otherwise, the BBC plans are held be the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem MA. When I looked for a BBC plan almost 30 years ago they had a little card file with the cards showing no more detail than the article, 18'WL Knockabout, 1907, nothing more than that. These may have been computerized but the plans are probably in storage due to another construction project. If you contact the Maritime Department try to talk to Dan Finamore.
