OT: boatanchor mailing lists and resources?

I know there are a few boatanchor fans here on the list, so I figured I'd
check here before spending yet another hour arguing with Google...

Basically, where are the good boatanchor related mailing lists and
resources at? I'm looking for resources on restoration and building home
brew tube based gear.

I have a National NC-2-40-CS receiver that I was given back around 1995 or
so, which needs its power transformer rebuilt/replaced, in addition to
lots of other minor repairs. Unfortunately, the former/original owner of
that receiver passed away before he could find the manuals for it that he
had filed away.

A couple of weeks ago, I was given an unfinished home brew 2 Meter
Receiver that is about 50-60% assembled. It was built by a friend of mine
who passed away about 2 years ago. Today, while cleaning out more old
parts and gear from his former shop, I found the faded plans for it and a
matching transmitter. Both appear to have been hand copied from the
October 1957 issue of QST.

I don't currently know when I'll have time to work on these projects, but
I'd like to have the resources and information I'll need available when I
find some free time.
