I like boats too
Sadly I don't have any plans to post at this stage, but maybe later
I have just sort of hit on something that might be of use to scale builders. The Hart Nautical Collection List, it located in Bldg.# 5 at MIT. There has been thousands of drawings,Lines and General layout drawings. One such area has 270 half hull models of vintage ships. Apparently you can order copies . I am looking for plans for the Johnsons brig Yankee (ex pilot north sea pilot schooner Emden) Roy Eklund

I have Irwin Johnson's books. He was quite the sailor. Around the world on his Brig Yankee with his family. Many times. I saw a picture of him doing a hand stand on top of a telephone pole too.
I have visited the MIT Hart Nautical museum also for plans. It is awesome.

A client asked me to let you all know that I am in the business of turning plans into laser-cut frames, decks, and deck house parts.

Please let me know if you are interested in getting something cut.

I started this business with sailboats but I do have some tug boats done and I have just cut a set of parts for a 74" Aphrodite model.

Best Regards,

Rick Shousha
