I am looking for any and all information i can get my hands on for a 1965 32' Owens Flagship. I just purchased the boat, which need some restoration. I am looking for owners manuals, original plans, magazine articals, ect.

I am also looking for any information of restoring and repairing plywood boats.

Thanks to all who might pass on information...

My 1963 20' Owens Flagship Outboard boat hull was in quite good condition. The joints are probably good if the the plywood is sound. Owens was sold to Brunswick in the early 60s and some things change. There are advertisements available that contain helpful information. The Owens Yacht Marque Club has some brochures and other material saved when Owens went out of business. I believe the plans and most documentation went to the dump. Ginger Martus, 609-859-2370, is the person to talk to for available documents. They will be glad to hear of your acquisition. Good luck.

You might try here for catalogs, lterature, etc. They seem to have a good bit of Owens stuff listed. Good Luck Vintage Marine literature sales (http://www.vmsl.com/)
