Thanks for your reply. For your information, I was able to get in touch with Bill Wolferstan and he was able to solve some of the mystery surrounding lack of information on the Gulf Island 29. Bill thinks that only about 6 of them were built at Chine Boat Yards in Vancouver. He does not know at what stage of production they were sold but his had an external transom hung rudder wheras all the others were internal rudders. Bill and his wife Clementian enjoyed "great sailing in Tumbo for 25 years".
My boat also has one of the cabin berths converted into a dinette and I do intend to post some pictures if I ever get the process figured out.
