Looking for Copies of Technical Drawings for My Runabout

Post by North Woody » Mon Oct 21, 2019 2:52 pm

Gents,

Is there a source for technical drawings for my 1936 Runabout? I’m just looking for a copy of the drawings to frame up and hang on my wall, similar to what I have for my 1968 Porsche 911.

Anyone know of a good source for these for our CC’s?

Thanks Jim. I spoke to them today an I ordered a few of the closest that they had to my '36 19" Runabout since they don't have the drawings for my specific boat. I ended up getting a top/trim drawing for a 1935 19' double cockpit Runabout and a deck arrangement & profile drawing of a 1935 18' single cockpit. Rachel a the Mariners Museum was an awesome help, and I'll post if pics of the drawings once I get 'em!

That's an awesome Porsche drawing.

Thanks, it was a gift from one of my sons and is hanging on the wall at the office. I’ll frame the CC drawing and give it some company on my wall when I get it. Here is my ‘68 911L that it’s based on :)

I got my CC drawings from the Mariner’s Museum today, and they are fabulous! While they didn’t have my exact boat, I got as close as I could with these two: A 19’ Double Cockpit Runabout drawn in Nov 1934 (signed “C Smith”!) and a 19’ Sport Runabout for the 1937 model year. The Double Cockpit drawing measures 12”x18”, while the Sport Runabout measures 24”x36”. I can’t wait to frame these bad boys up in the office to start the countdown to getting back on the water - Memorial Day is only 7 months away :)
