I am new to boat building and this forum. I have built a scratch hull for a 24" sailboat in the past from my own plans, but life got in the way of my boat building hobby, so it was never finished. It was a plank over frame construction. I guess one could classify me as "Amateur", but I do have some wood-working skills. Being an amateur, I would like to scratch build from free plans, and i would like to build a fishing boat similar to Artur. I cannot however find any good plans for this ship which really apeals to my building fever. Maybe someone here knows of the source of working plans for this boat? Thanx
I have just completed a tug , scratch built. This was from photographs. I was able to use superstructure as a means of making a scale rough plan. I will be posting photographs of the model which is 24 inches long In the next day or so. I hope this idea works as well for you as it did for myself.
Hi Mate, welcome to the forum, shame life got in the way of your former model. There are many plans available but not sure if they are free. Sarik have just taken over the plans service in the UK, not sure if all the plans are on their web site yet. Have you tried a google search to see what turns up??? Regards
Thanks to all that have replied. Special thanks to RNinMunich who provided links to EXACTLY what I am looking for. Next stage will be making a visit to my printing company to scale up the drawings to my planned length of 36". Interesting buildup of the stern section with wood block. Once I commit plans to wood, will start a build log. Thanks again!
Hi Bruce Thanks for the ebay info. At this point with my inexperience and pocketbook size (or contents),I want to keep things as inexpensive as possible. This way, if all else fails, I will get a few minutes of heat from the wood in my woodstove and therefore it won't be a complete loss. 😁😋
