    Default George Crouch designs

    Prior to WWII, George Crouch developed a series of drawings that eventually served as the basis for the experimental PT1 through PT4. Aside from a waterline profile and basic plan view in the 1940 General Board Study (NARA), I've not been able to find any other original plans. These were a rather unique design and I'd like to acquire a more complete set of plans. Supposedly, the Haggin Museum in Stockton, CA has some of his material, but they've not responded to emails. Any suggestions??

    According to Wikipedia, the PT-3 still exists somewhere in Pennsylvania.




    You might try to search for the archives of the Miami Shipbuilding Corp. and Fisher Boatworks in Detroit.


    Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
    When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
    And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
    And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
    Job 38: 8-11

    Baby bootlegger is to my eye by far the most beautiful power boat ever designed.
    If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
