    Thank you Lew
    But these are "B" models (Refits) my kit is an "A" model. Console, Gages, instruments, steering wheels Front and Upper Helm railings, Seats, Radar, and many other items have changed I recently went to Coos Bay and Ilwaco and got a tour of the their boats and took lots of photos Ilwaco Wa, showed me the difference between each boat of the B & C boats but there are no โ€œAโ€™sโ€ around they have up graded all of the MLBโ€™s and working on doing the Bโ€™s now.
    The Upper helm deck is totally different on the โ€œCโ€ models new seats, consoles have been totally replaced steering is now more in the middle.
    I have a copy of the Actual plans I got from the Coast guard Museum On the 1st builds
    Again thank you for your info
    I will be upgrading my Photos later this week

    Here are a few of the not-so-common photos I have found. I have about 35-30 photos that I accumulated for my Pro-Boat upgrade for my 47 footer. Let me know if you need something specific.

    It is 36 1/2 inches long. The company that made it is long out of business. I got it from a friend. That was passed down to him, it is missing all plans and instructions and several parts. I'm getting photos on line, but there are at least 3 different upgrades to the boat and the kit was from the original build. So getting photos has been difficult. I was able to find the original boat plans from the Coast Guard museum in Seattle that has been a great help. Along with help from Coosbay in oregon and Ilwaco Washington. Being able to get tours of the boats and photos. So I'm building basically from scratch. Trying to stay with the original plans. Which I took to FedEx and they made the original plans to fit a 36.5 inch hull.
    It has been a very interesting build so far.

    That is beautiful. I was only at a station with 47's for two years. So, I do not have a connection to them to where I would build one. That is some excellent work. I hope you have a great time with that build.

    Interesting project. Styrene and foamboard are good materials to use.
