When I built my orca, I had no clue... still don't really... (21" LOD) But it is fun to hear non-boating passers by say "duh... dunt... duh, dunt.... dunt, dunt, dunt, dunt..." when they see it on the water...

Not a problem David, It took alot of computer time to finally find the warlocks true size. It came out as 39' long, 11' beam and 13 tons displacement. I kind of ran accross the article by chance never thinking that it would be in a mag. about steamships. Now I can't find the article.

Here are some out of water shots Pop. I've been using these for my 1/6th build. The hull so far on mine has been easy. Glassing is done and the cabin frame work is progressing.
