    I think your primary source of information on this boat will be the Crosby family.

    I would start with Tom Miller. His contact information is listed underTom Miller boats on this site.

    Your V-hull with strakes is a departure from the rest of the Crosby and Dyne line. They are all semi-V with soft (round) chines. Ab Crosby J.r mentioned it's handling quirks in his post where he mentioned breaking some ribs.

    Hey Nadochef:

    I've attached a jpg of a sales brochhure that I have that shows what looks to be your hull, provided it's a 17.5 V-hull.

    Cheers,

    Kevin-

    Have you finished the flooring and did you do the lower unit swap with newer Volvo unit?
