In an earlier post in this thread you mention the Davidson 29, and you seem familiar with the boat.
I looked at one that was for sale a couple of years ago. I loved the design but was concerned about the weight of Kokopele since she was listed as 7,200 lbs, but the Davidson drawing showed a design weight of 5,800 lbs if I recall correctly.
I heard a rumour from a local surveyor a few months ago that the molds may still be sitting in Port Townsend somewhere (possibly with an unfinished hull inside). Can you tell me if this is true? It would be nice to build one at, or near, the proper weight. Mind you Kokopele was quite quick as she was as I recall. There was also Midsummer. If that was near the proper weight, that might be interesting, but I have no idea where it is now.
Can you tell me if the rumour is true? If so, could you direct me to who I may contact to get some more info.
