Designer's Choice Howmar info needed,please

Would appreciate anyone with info on the boat especially where I might find a template they used to locate motor mount backing on the transom. Would pay good money for that. Thanks in advance, Ray

I don't have the motor moount template, but I have templates for hiking strap, cleats and the spec sheet with some diagrams. Can you use any of this?

Designer's Choice Howmar info needed,please

I know this is an old thread, but I would be very interested in getting any templates or information I can about the Designer's Choice sailboat, especially the hiking straps template. I had also found a web site with a lot of information about this boat a month ago, but can not find it now. Anyone know the link?

I have a pdf of the Owners manual if that would be of any value to you.

Designers Choice info

Any information you have would be greatly appreciated!! I bought the boat at the beginning of the summer and have loved sailing the boat. Although it is not the fastest boat of it size I have owned, for the lake that I live on with its gustly and unpredicitable winds, this boat behaves remarkably for its size.

Unfortunately, the person I bought it from did not have any information on it to give me.

Re: Designer's Choice Howmar info needed,please

Just happened upon this thread...

I own a DC which I have had for a number of years. It is a 1979 vintage. I do not use her as often since acquiring my larger Hunter which I keep here on the Chesapeake Bay. Nonetheless, have included some photos on my Flickr site. If you wish to access them, send me a note back and will send you the link via email, as posting links in this message forum seems to be against policy. The DC is a great little boat. The photos include motor mount and rigging.

I recently acquired one of these great little boats as well, and am starving for any good information I can find. I'll take whatever I can get. Thanks in advance.
