Plans for fishing boat.

Recommended Posts

Morning, you could do worse than to have a look at:-

www.cornwallmodelboat.co.uk 

but I think you'll be building plank on frame? Did you ever see Olympic out of the water? as that would give you a good start. The photo suggests upright stem and stern post, so with that and the keel member and clinker construction?...........and lots of bulkheads, your up and running!???

Twice that I remember.

First as a five year old at her launch and a few years later when she was on the slip at Lossiemouth getting a clean and repaint but I was too busy looking at Sea Hawks and Scimitars to pay much attention 

I was planning plank and frame so I'll have a look through that site for plans.

Thanks.

That's excellent thank your friend for taking the trouble to reply.

A quick looks shows some possibilities.

By chance I found this photo on the internet. It shows the 'Olympic' entering Lossiemouth harbour and would you credit it..my grandfather standing at the bow.

Magnificent!

All that rigging practice on the Camel'll come in handy after all.

Duh, just realised the model boat linked in my previous post has already been reviewed here on Brexit.

Best I stick to building in future and leave the technical stuff to them with bigger brains
