I would like to know if this boat is rebuildable . It is complete but the keel and stem are so rotten I wish I could loft new molds if anyone knows where I could get the lines drawing so I could make it a easy deal or else I will just make molds close enough and have at it, thanks , am new to this forum so I must study a bit so I can show the pictures

The parts are replaceable, but the plans are not available. All the Owens files, including the plans, were thrown away when the company went out of business in the 70s. You will have to use the parts as they are and the shape as it is to get the shapes of the new parts. Measure them and figure out how you can get the old pieces out and the new ones in. It should be possible.

Sounds like a worthy project David. Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to the photo's. Posting photo's is basicly putting the URL for the photo between these tags---> your URL here. The URL must be from a linkable site too. Good Luck!
Peace---> Kevin in Ohio

P.S. You don't say what year your Owen's is. 21 ft. is small for an Owen's. Smallest I could find a photo of was this 1961 25 footer---->

I believe there is an OWENS club out there ... search on the 'net.

KIA- Owens made boats as small as 15 feet ... at least that's the smallest I've seen.

We had a 1959 29 Flagship growing up. Not a bad boat, for it's intended use- family, inland/coastal cruising.

Good luck.
