    Happy you found it brought back memoriesπŸ˜€. It is indeed a 16ft fishing boat .The full size plan is available on the web at Svenson's Free Plans if you wanted a copy. I have both now in digital format. Interestingly a "missing" Rhodesian "Model Products" plan was based on the Sea Urchin, with the Cabin being removable and the deck straightened which makes it resemble a small Sea Scout. The other Model Products kits are largely based on Les Rowell's designs, and the plans for them are on both the Old Boats and RC Groups ,(Vintage Boats) websites.

    Hi, I presume that the Dolphin 16 is the same boat that my dad built in the late 50's as a 16ft family fishing boat, he also built the trailer to carry it on. He fitted an Austin 7 engine and gearbox. We used to go to Cleethorpes most weekends in the summer with it. Traded in for a 20foot launch in 1962 to give our growing family room. I think it deserves to be modelled, so I might have a go in a large scale say 1/6th.
    Thanks for the memories, Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Looks like you have found the source of Mr Rowell's inspiration..!!!

    They really are very similar, aren't they?

    When searching for the source of some designs for the Old Boats website came across an interesting find . Scanned both plans and the comparison is uncanny, Any comments ?
