Would someone running a CG Certified db 23' x 9'10" Tour please send me the vessel name & official number so that I can get the approved plans to verify dimensions?

In addition to the request above:
Would someone with a 2016 or older 9'10" x 23' Inspected (COI), that utilizes similar construction (5/16" bolts, etc...), PLEASE give up the official number/name? Or tell me who has one so that I can go get it...
It may be possible to apply the five year rule to some of these issues.
11 months into this re-inspection process now! :banghead:

Nope, just paint to break things up and cover up more crater cracked welds . . .
Based on ANOTHER Inspection yesterday in our continued quest for a resolution with USCG. Interesting this inspection was the one year anniversary that we started this mission on. How many years can this process take?

Is anyone going to step up and PLEASE give us a boat to sistership to?

DB Cooper . . .

. . . May be more elusive than a set of CG approved plans for this boat!

... after more than a year the Official "Work List" has arrived.
#1 remains the plans; #3 & 5 address multiple cracked welds. Many are crater cracks, so we get to clean all, inspect, repair all cracked ...
The bottom splice gets a 4" clean path for the entire 23' run. Gonna be a bitch to clear Super Slick w/o damaging the weld!

Strongly suggest you review the record for your SPV and notify the OCMI of any discrepancy!
