Looking for plans for a small craft used by the US Navy?

The records of Barbour Boat Works are available in the Special Collections of the Joiner Library at East Carolina University. Barbour constructed dozens of types of small boats and small auxiliarys that the US Navy used. These include motor whale boats, personnel boats, harbor tugs, landing craft, patrol boats, cutters, fire boats, gasoline barges, yard oilers, mine sweeping boats, submarine chasers, tankers, destroyers and more.

Many of the blueprints for these vessels are available from the library at a very reasonable cost. Here is a link to a 33 page PDF file listing what they have:

The link provided below no longer works!

Unfortunately, as often happens, the Joiner Library has "improved" their web site and now I can't find the list of boat plans.

You can try to contact them at:
