1937 William F Crosby Design?

Hi all
I got some good help about my Mutineer 15 and now I'd like to ask a question about a boat I'm thinking of buying
It's supposed to be a William F Crosby Design 22' overall length "Judy"
Purchased from the Seattle Maritime museum
Full weighted keel with a 25' mast
Cedar plank construction with canvas over ply decking
Tiny open oval cockpit (about 6x4)
Seems to be a dedicated sailboat with no place for an outboard
Looks like a racer to me
I can't find anything on it on the internet, it looks kind of like a little dragon

It's got some problems, some trim rot and a bit of leagage(water in the boat seeping out in a couple of areas)
also some delaminating of the deck ply (very small areas) near the edge of the deck in places
Needs bottom paint ,sails (hurrah) and cockpit refinishing
Comes with the fine trailer shown
Does anybody know of this design and what would be good things to look for
I'm going to be getting inside her with a flash light to examine the insides as best as I can (being a bowyer ,having some luthier training and having done construction of various sorts I have experience wuith wood..just not boat specific)
Any ideas and or recommendations?
THanks

Wooden boats weep some usually,especially on trailers or blocked.Designed to have strain distributed over large areas not several fixed points & keel.Deck issues should not require too much to repair,Would look underside of deck to determine extent of deck issues.Nice looking little boat.marc

What is she fastened with? Bronze screws are best (or rarer monel). has she been refastened? You should really get an experienced wood boat repairman to look at her, if not an expert wood surveyor. I've owned and repaired wooden boats for over twenty years. Rot and decayed fastenings are your most serious problems. You might also inquire on the WoodenBoat Forum, more likely they will know the design or the boat. Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the info!
Cost dictates that i have to be my own expert on this one
I do have a fair bit of experience with wood. not a surveyor mind you
Sound advice though,I just joined the wooden boat forum prior to making this post
I was waiting on approval! haha
Any and all input appreciated
The more sources the better!

Give it the once over thoroughly and make sure that the soft spots are really confined to what you've described. Pull some screws from the garboard plank and check their condition too. If all else checks out okay, the weeping may just be that she's dry and needs a good soak. Woodies don't like to dry out, it'd be best of you could wet store her.

You're right looks like a dragon. The people over at WBF should be able to help identify her.
