Hi All, I've just renovated an Aerokits 24" Sea Scout built by my Dad in the early sixties. During my researches I stumbled across this!
If you have 15 feet of 'Yard' available, and something like an old Triumph Herald engine lying around😁 here's how to build yourself a 14' 6" nippy runabout for 2 or 3 'crew'. Large size plans for 25 cents 😁😁
A luxury 'Rescue Boat' perhaps!? 😉
Happy building, cheers Doug 😎
Oops! Thread title should be ... 14.5' runabout ! 😲
Site won't let me edit the title!! 😡

So the attached Adobe file is not a link to the actual PDF, it only gives an enlarged image of the picture. Cheers for that.

Not quite Ron!
Left click on the image, then Left click on 'Download' in the top left corner.
Windows then gives you the choice of Open or Save.
Left click Open and OK and your PDF App will open it, then you can just view it or save it wherever you want.
Would be interested to hear if anyone does build it! 👍
I ain't got the space 🤔
Ciao, Doug 😎

Nope. It is ONLY the IMAGE of that Adobe that can be downloaded. I have tried about 5 or 6 times. There is ONLY the IMAGE, NO PDF file.

No idea what you are doing wrong😲
Works every time for me!
Like I said, use the 'Download' button top left when the 'Media Gallery' screen appears. See attached 'Snip'.
DO NOT JUST 'SAVE' THE IMAGE COS THAT'S ALL YOU WILL GET!
