    All of them?

    Does this mean we can do our research from home?

    Can you search by hull number?

    Sorry Don, but it does not seem to be everything, certainly no hull cards. Also, the search function does not appear to be very useful. I didn’t get any results for most of the models I searched for, but casual browsing confirmed that the images and plans for some of them were in fact there.

    For example, a search for “sportsman” only returned a few pre-war photos, I think of the 29’er. A few clicks later, I was looking at drawings of a 17 Sportsman. While the image was clearly labeled, the file name and metadata didn’t give the search function enough info to identify what was in that drawing.
