Thanks for the welcome all! I'll answer what questions I can, but I'm coming into this pretty fresh as well.

Built by Frank Crain from 1989 to 1991. He built docks and other marine
type construction for a living, which explains the heavy running gear
Apparently he built 5 or 6 of these in his life. I'm still trying to find more info.
- Normally they are fitted with Monkey Rudders forward of the wheel
, as well as main rudders. Apparently they handle great, although I haven't yet had the pleasure.
Mag - I haven't seen it but am going to get a copy! Haven't read that in years but it was my favorite for a while.
LeoCat - It's over in Mandeville.
Draw - around 24". Hull
is likely 4 feet deep.
Hydraulics - for steering
. See picture.
Sophia - as soon as I get it cleaned up!
