    What "scale" do we think the original size Bobby represents? If the front cabin door is even supposed to represent 5 feet then its a big old launch for the Thames.....I guess in reality Bobby is more of a cut off MTB or RAF rescue maybe?

    My latest attempt is now complete, but I have started a 14" from reduced plan version. It is tiny now I have the deck and chine cut from 3/16"!

    Hi I have half built a Northlight (about 15 years ago) and I don't remember cutting the hull as you suggest. My build stalled because I lost the instructions and like you emailing Caldercraft did not receive a response.

    The one I built around the turn of the century had a Speed 400 I think and 6v power. It planed really nicely with that. 2020 version has a 540 and 7.2v, but I have a 380 size motor in reserve in case its too much. I can't see how a 600 motor can fit without chopping the first bulkhead unless there's a much shorter coupling available.

    I remember this free plan from the magazine back in the day. When I was a young lad I lent it to a good friend and only got it back 20+ years later. To show there was no hard feelings I built him one for his 40th birthday. Now nearly another 20 years have passed and I'm building one from the RBC kit. I do have the original article somewhere, but I can't lay my hands on it. Plan is easily available, but does anyone have the article?
