    The Queen of Panda’s, White Bear continues to thrive in Victoria BC , Canada. I have been caretaking this lovely “dream boat” , to coin a phrase, 10 years now and she continues to gather a crowd everywhere she goes. I have lots of pictures to share. Looking for a plumbing diagram can anyone help

  2. James Phillips says:

    To update the list I own hull #27 Misty. I purchased the boat in 1994 and changed the name from Cooter’s Scooter to Misty. The home port is still listed as Annapolis but the boat is actually on Lake Erie near Monroe, MI.

  3. Jeannine Fogel says:

    I own the Panda 38 hull number 4. I can’t find the hull number on my hull anywhere. I think I know where to look per Coast Guard regulations but I don’t see it. I submitted for membership in the Yahoo Group asking the same question, but haven’t heard back from them. Might someone in your organization know where to look?
    Thanks in advance.
