    Does anybody know who has the molds for the 28' Calvin Beal, Jr. models. If memory serves me correctly, there were two; one that he designed for his brother Wayne's line of boats, and one that he designed for David Schlafer's Mitchell Cove Boats. Both very similar to the 'Little Girl', but I believe a little different from each other. Is the Crooked River 28' the same as the Mitchell Cove 28'?

    Thanks guys for your help.

    Powderpro, I had a brain fart on that one. David Schlafer had a 28' Calvin that he finished off and did pretty well racing with. I think 'Captain Jack' was the name of it.

    28 crowley beal, 28 mitchel cove , 28 wayne beal,. I think the mitchel cove became the northern bay 28 and the wayne beal became the mussel ridge 28. there was a time that crooked river boats had the mitchel cove 28s also, I may be wrong but I think thats how it was. There were 3 28 calvinbeal molds out there all with small subtle changes to the hulls.

    Not too long ago Millennium marine had advertised having the 28 NB mold. Search them on facebook.
