1959 40' Conqueror information

Post by LaBob » Tue Jul 28, 2015 12:00 pm

I am currently building a model of a 1959 40' Conqueror from scratch, using plans from the CC museum, and 1959 CC catalog. I have received a lot of help on here on my past models and hope to get some for this model. Anyone with pictures of their boat would be a great help. Particularly the aft deck and the fly deck. Thanks... :D

I am assuming you have already reached out to owners of record that might be listed in the Hull registry on this site. The next step would be to check your ACBS directory and do the same.

Not all owners are addicted to this forum .

Thanks Greg,, usually I just post a message and several people contact me. I can get all the construction except the cowling over the salon front window. Can't figure that out.
Will check the registry :D

What magnificent work....makes me proud to know that at least one other devoted boat craftsman, no matter the scale, can do boat....can't do photoshop! We boat guys stick to the basics!!! Find a kid to post more of those pics of that fabulous work....and rest assured NO cyber geek has the patience for that art!
