    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.

    Just purchased a 2008 Hutchinson 28. Found it on this site, took a while to get it to Maine from MD and sort out some wiring issues. First transition from outboard / CC to inboard / rudder, haven't wrecked anything yet. Seems to be very solidly built and finished, really happy so far.

    Of course this could possibly be an urban legend without photographic evidence to substantiate the story.:D

    I spoke with Cory Guimond at Millennium Marine last week. He confirmed that he does have the molds for the Crowley Beal 28 hull ($15K US) and top ($10K US).
