      Hi, I have the plans for that boat, and the boat in the garage. I
      need to paint it and put on the rig. I hope to sail it this spring.
      The number on the plan is #597. There's no name, but the plan
      indicates it's for "Montgomery Boat Yard." It's more of a Stretch
      Tortoise than a Brick. I adapted the rig myself, using the Brick as
      an example.Mr. Payson has some information about this one in his
      latest book.
