david platt sent me the following via " Hi Mike. I’ve had a couple of McDonagh pigs come in for some minor work over the last couple of weeks. Both of these boards are in great condition for their age. Greg McDonagh was one of the main players in Brookvale in the 60’s. He struck a deal with Joey Cabell while he was out here for the 64 world champs to add a Joey Cabell ‘Custom Special’ to the McDonagh range of models.

The Cabell measures in at 9'8 ¾” x 21 ½” x 3 ¼”. The wide point is 9 ½” behind centre. The nose is 15 ½”. The tail is 15 ½”. The pod is 5". The second board would have been built in 66/67. It measures in at 9'2 ½” x 22 ½” x 2 11/16”. The wide point is 14 ¾” behind centre, as is the thickness. The nose is 16 3/8”. The tail is 17 ¾”. The is pod 6". The rails are pinched. Enjoy. Regards, Platty."
