Cooper Bros Martin 29
Anyone have any drawings on this boat? Martin 29 built by Cooper Bros in Canada.
Most were sold as Kit boats i understand, and while has the specs, It would sure be nice to see some drawings or plans for the interior. Anyone point in the right direction?
I also need to size the side pads to support the boat for a transport trailer

Most of the 29's were NOT sold as kit boats, they were a production boat by Coopers when Donny Martin was the production manager there. I doubt anyone has drawings of it but there are usually some for sale with pics that might help you.

Re: Cooper Bros Martin 29
Thanks sloopJonB.
I have checked out a bunch of photos and these have helped. the one I purchased last summer definitely was finished by the owner, so I am removing some of the poor craftsmanship, but wondering because I have yet to see a Martin 29 with the same window treatment. In addition, mine is rigged with the "tall rig" from a Yamaha 30-1. Kind of interesting, but sails like a dream.

Re: Cooper Bros Martin 29
There were a handful of kits sold but not many AFAIK. I watched a guy finishing the plug into a much modified version - welded up Peterson type keel and so forth.

The boats are old enough now that there have been lots of owner "improvements" made to them. The originals all had 2 rectangular fixed ports aft and 1 forward on each side.
