Our drawings are considered proprietary and we do not share them. The fact of the matter is very little in the production of our sailboats was documented in the form of drawings, For example, we might have drawn a custom component for an outside firm to produce for us; however, most of the time fabrication was done from samples or prototypes serving as a pattern for fabrication. We may have drawn individual components, but rarely drew anything showing the relationship of components to one another. For example we don't have any drawings showing how plumbing is routed through behind cabinets, under floors, etc.

Information like Hull lines, tables of offsets, moments of enertia, etc. was created by the individual naval architects, and were seldom retained by S2. Once the hull plugs were built we failed to retain that original design information. Since the original naval architects were consulted on any design revisions, they utilized their own records for those revisions.
