      I haven't had a chance to get out the book. I'll be very interested to see. I hadn't remembered the stern as being so beamy. Nor did I ever notice the rounded stem. I've seen pictures of Garden boats in the past that I've barely recognized from the plans.

      I found the inside/outside arrangement very difficult to visualize from the plan drawings. Garden drew plans for builders, and they are in general more difficult to read than plans by Atkin, Bolger and some others who paid more attention to how they would appear to a novice or in the pages of a magazine.
