I still can't find any hull id or other info on the boat transom (may have been painted over or sanded off?), but something I read sent me back to the title, which did have a hull id and therefore a manufacterer's id (DCD). I checked this on the coast guard web site and found a listing for Designer Craft Boat Co., which took over the MIC from Drake Craft Inc. in 1996. Other than some dates, old addresses and the fact that Designer Craft went out of business in 2008, there is no boat specific info. If you would like to add these manufacterers to your database, here is the link to the coast guard database: http://www.uscgboating.org/recalls/mic_detail.aspx?id=DCD
Don't know why my countless attempts to searh for "Drake" didn't pull up the US Coast Guard page, but at least we now know that Drake Craft was originally the manufacterer '75-'96. I'd like to know if anyone has magazine adds, catalogs or manuals from Drake Craft Inc or Designer Craft Boat Co., which include model name, specs or any info on this boat. Thanks!
