Wanted Shrimp Boat Plans

The photo represents a Shrimp boat model I would like to build. I have not been very successful in obtaining plans for this type of boat. Does anyone know of a source to buy plans?

You might try Loyalhanna Dockyard, they have the entire Taubman Plans catalog.

Dumas products has this kit listed in their "specially priced models" section, don't know if it is really what you are looking for:

I knew about this kit but I was hoping to get plans more like the picture. The kit would take some serious modifications to make it look like the boat in the picture. I am keeping this possibility on the back burner if all else fails.

Take care

Don

There is always the idea to find a similar hull and scratch build it. The boat does not look too complicated

Check with this guy on e-bay. I have looked at a bunch of his plans before. He might have something. I do not know him or have never bought anything from him before.

The gentleman on E Bay doesn't have any plans either I have checked with him. The model has to be an exact replica of an existing boat. One that was built without plans.

Take care

Can you take pictures of the boat (Preferably out of water?) if you can, you can use it to trace trace a line drawing to form the hull.



Have a look athttp://www.ziobrowski.net/rnm/index.php?i=fishboats for some pictures i have taken. I also have many more of the same style of boat that i have yet to post, so ask if you want more.

There is a Lindbergh shrimp boat kit on ebay at this link:

You could take lines off the hull and superstructure to develop your own plan. One way is to section the hull and another is to make a plug and cut it into sections to avoid ruining the kit hull.

These are some great pictures. I will study them to see what I can come up with.
Thanks for the thoughts.

This idea could work. I may give it a try. Any idea what I would use to make the mold without too much heat build up? I wouldn't want to distort the hull from heat. Some of these compounds put out a lot of heat while they are curing.

If the thickness of the hull is pretty constant, you might try filling it with expandable foam and cutting that into sections. You would have to allow for the thickness of the shell when developing bulkhead patterns, but you would have to make an adjustment for the thicknes of the planking, anyway.

Thanks for the thought Ray but I already chacked them and noted it in an earlier post here. I have their catalog and couldn't find anything like the first model pictured.

Was just pointed out to me in another forum- Model Ship Builder, Jul/Aug 1980, has an article and plans for shrimper "Linda Jo", see below- a classic shrimper to my eye!
The plans have all views and lines.
The article is available on a CD compilation from Seaways Publishing:
