I bet if you snail mail MAIB they can tell you which issue. Or there may
be indexes on line someplace.

it's a pram. Maybe too many chines. I think about 12 feet long, as I
recall. And I think Bolger has some other boats of that sort which might
be worth looking into. Isn't there something called the Supermouse?
(also a pram). One of the boats at bateau.com is a big pram, and not
ugly, IMHO. It's not just you, a lot of Michalak boats are funny looking.
