Design 1756 - Passenger Vessel

This 58' passenger vessel was built of aluminum by J.W. Nolan & Sons of Erie, Pennsylvania.  She was launched in 1963.  I can't tell you much about her.  Looking at the Nolan archives I have not been able to identify the boat, or if she is still afloat. I can see a small note on the plans that says the Coast Guard at Buffalo, New York had us add freeing ports to the aft cockpit so my supposition is that the boat saw service somewhere in upstate New York.

Here is the general arrangement.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 57'-9"
LWL 53'-0"
Beam 15'-9"
Draft 4'-4"
