Where did all the old line drawings go?

I would like to know what all the builders did with their old drawings when they went under in the 80's and 90's. I would hope there is some collector out there who has a storage unit with rows of drawing file cabinets with every original drawing. I know you can get PDF's and copies, but I would love to hang an original old blueprint drawing of a classic Pearson on my wall. Who can help me find the "art" that I am looking for?

Re: Where did all the old line drawings go?

I would love to get PDFs or originals of plans for my Pearson 28-2. I don't think there is anything available that is better than low resolution scans of the brochures though. I hope you find a source!

Owners of S&S-designed boats are lucky. There are some high resolution drawings of popular boat designs on their blog.
