Tayanas - original drawings

Many years ago, Bill Truxall who was the head of the Tayana Owners Group gave us TWO BARRELS of TAYANA blueprints and drawings for safe keeping as he went into retirement. Now, a little over 15 years later or so, it's time to pass them on to someone else for safekeeping. We're in Florida if someone wants to pick them up or arrange for shipping, which we can't do.

Hate the thought of just simply throwing them out. Since we're BRAND new on this post I doubt we'll check in too often. Would a phone number help. Thanks

Re: Tayanas - original drawings

Hi,

Please don't throw them out. I'm not a Tayana owner but if you can't find another taker let me know and I'll arrange for shipment.

You should contact the Tayana Owners Group, I suspect somebody there would take you up on the offer to assume ownership of these docs. Hopefully they can be digitized and shared, if they are not already. Great boats.

That TOG URL became inactive in 2007.
The new 'home' for the Tayana Owners Group is now on Google Groups but you need to 'be approved' to join/enter the site.

Re: Tayanas - original drawings

Thank you. Well I tried that site and haven't gotten through to anyone. Someone left me a site of tognews.com, so I'll try that. No, they're not digital. We've left them in their two original barrels so they are as they were many years ago.

Just keep in mind that the design of the Tayana 37 is the intellectual property of Robert H. Perry.

Re: Tayanas - original drawings

Hi Bob: Well these are all prints that Tayana owners gave to Bill Truxel. If you want them and can arrange for shipping, we're happy to do that to. If it becomes a problem, we'll just toss them...two barrels are just too much for us to store anymore.

Re: Tayanas - original drawings

Trying to. They are NOT for sale...just archival so in 100 years when the two of us are gone, some kid might say..."WOW...look what they used to build"...and he won't be looking at drawings of moon rovers - ha ha .

Do you have any ideas where they might be wanted? I "MIGHT" be able to drive them back to Wa. this summer when we come home. "MIGHT" being a very key word with everything we tote back and forth every year.

I think you are on the right track with the owners group. I'll give it some thought.
I appreciate your effort on this. It's always fun, for me anyway, to look at old prints.
I was a 28 year old kid when I designed that boat.
