Your very welcome Pops, it's my pleasure to help. Where did i find the pictures? All over the place. Universal Studios archives, and the book Memories of Martha's Vineyard. I even try to contact Carl Gottlieb through his Facebook account asking for pictures. He never responded though.

Agian thanks, I have the book Memories of Martha's Vineyard what a great book love it, hope you find somemore pics and I will do the same, still looking for a good shot of the bow out of the water, especialy the knee, is it squard off or rounded under to the keel I see small pics from a far with the Orca out of the water but cant identify the bow knee because if you see the pic of the Orca II it looks like a 90 not rounded off .
Well DCN, we will keep in touch

Look at post #36 in this thread Pops. That's the best shot of the bow i can do for you. Just remember, The ORCA (or Warlock) had a rounded bow. The sinkable ORCA had a 90* bow because she didn't have a bottom or lower hull.

Looking really nice pops...As Charlie mentioned,Gregs plans work well for the Orca.I built an orca from them a couple years ago.However,they do take alot of modifications to get them to where they need to be for the Orca..Ill try and find my photos,which show the boat in various stages....
Looks like your on the right track with what your doing.

Is this widely considered to be the (genuine) Warlock/ORCA?

Good looking boat and you can see the flying bridge design was retained in the movie...

Joe Alves and his crew did a super job in transforming her into the
"ORCA" we all know and love ........

WOW Nice Job!! Did you have pictures of the crew cabin, or just wing it? The door at the bow is where the Head (toilet) is. Yes i'm even putting the crapper in my 1/6th.
Thank you for posting these. I thought i'd never find the builder or more pictures.
