This thread has some pics and info

The Baron is buried behind my buddies daughters furnishings until she finds a new apartment , so tough to get a decent pic of it.

Some more pics and info in this thread.

It looks very similar except for 2 things.

The bow of your boat looks to have a large radius from the rail area down . Kind of like what the old 24/7s , excaliburs, panteras,cobra, hulls had.

Also do I see a flat pad on the bottom at the transom ? The Baron has a large radius in the bottom at the transom.

2 more measurements for you.

Measure from the chine at the transom up to where the hull extends out for mounting the deck on, it is almost a 90degree .

Than go forward of the transom 3 feet and take another measurement from chine to the area where the hull does a 90 to mount the deck cap.

I know a Baron like the back of my hand and it sure looks like one.

Here is a better shot of the bow.
I took some measurements.
chine to sheer @ transom is 14 1/4"
chine to sheer @ 3' from transom is 18 1/2"
chine to sheer @ 6' from transom is 21"
Yes, there is a "pad" on the bottom of the hull.

Ok heading over there to take some measurements now. Any pics of the bow area from the rail down to the chine from the front. That little area where the bow eye goes is it sharp or does it have a large radius like it looks to me in the pics I see.

The deck looks like someone copied a 19 Sutphen deck. If I remember right the guy who my brother sold the hull to was a skilled craftsmen type of guy.


What kind of old wood boats you restore, I am a classic boat lover and used to work building wood/ epoxy Custom sportfishing boats up on the OuterBanks back in the 90s.

Does it have a flange on the hull for the deck cap to mount on?

If it's not a Baron I wonder if it's a cut down 24/7 design. Don't know if you are famaliar with that design but it was the most copied hull out there back in the day.

24/7 were the Panteras/ Excaliburs/P&Ds/cobra/ you name it. The thick bow area is what leads me to this .

Is the hull painted or gel coat can you tell?

Tommy,

Is Todd still in Grand Haven doing the R.E. stuff? I remember running with him in his 185 and we were in our 18 skater outside of Saugatuck during the offshore races. He used to thrash that little boat and didn't want to get beat whatever it took.

If your referring to Todd Camphoff I don't know. . He is the one my brother Dave sold the molds to that they started PowerPlay with.

If you are referring to Todd who I sold my Baron too I don't know what R.E. Stuff is?

I got the measurements .

18 3/4 at the stern

21 3/4 at the 3 foot mark

23 3/4 at the 6 foot mark

Now that I look your lower strakes run the full length too, which the Baron does not.

Back to square one I guess.

Does it have a deck flange built up on the hull? Is the hull gelcoat?

Tom,
There is no deck flange.
The hull has been painted twice that I can see. I can't tell if it was originally gelcoat and sanded to receive the paint or not.
I really appreciate the time and effort you took to attempt to decipher this riddle.
Looks like the hunt continues!
