    It's not the Wasque which I think is based on an Alden design. Not WB, but the Maine Maritime Museum has a collection of Arno's plans on this page:...

    Re: a boat model I could not find ?

    I think WoodenBoat has plans for at least one Arno Day lobster boat. I just happen to know her, having watched work progress, and my boat is there in the backgroung -- upper left.

    And, highest tides are a day or three after full or new, not on the day itself, this is on North American east coast where fetch is long if that makes any difference.
