    This is indeed rare; these were once common. Few in museum collections.

    That's the same design I just finished building last year. Details were hard to find because there were no original boats that I knew of and no details on the limited plans I had. I took my details from other Palmer designs.
    Not too far from me, either. I don't think I'm up to the restoration that it no doubt needs. Hope someone can save it.

    Here's mine:

    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
