There are some great photos (and a video) of the boat's restoration on a Dutch site:

Wat voor boot is dit ???

I've seen the boat on several occasions, sailing on SF Bay, and it's a beauty.

A good thread about the design and about Starbuck and Mirage, in Sailing Anarchy, with very large pictures of the hull shape and keel, which also show the flared aft quarter section quite nicely:

the boat sails nicely...and incredibly fast for a more than 50 year old boat.
