    Blimey Stephen, this must weigh quite a bit when ready for the water. Do you have assistance handling and launching it πŸ˜‰?

    As for plans, my dad did his drawings himself when he owned the original, as there were a lot of similar boats of that era, original was built in 1928 somewhere in Norfolk.
    I will see if my Mum can remember any further details, but as she's 96 may have lost it.
    If you can imagine half of the rear area as another cabin, and 4 portholes on each side of the forward hull, that is how it looked originally when Dad built it.
    Cheers Colin.
