When I printed mine on my old hp, it took 8 for pages 2-6, equals 32 pages I had to cut and
tape together.
Printed as a fast draft to save ink. Good thing paper is cheap.

Hey boz I'd really like to get my hands on one of those hulls once you start pulling them.

Marter those parts look great, keep posting as you go! I will revise the plans to take up less paper, since you guys can tile them yourselves. I've always had access to plotters so I don't know much about tiling.

That sounds interesting! I was wondering how to modify the salty hull shape into a woody, the vertical bow would give it a 1920's runabout appearance. Its the arched deck that concerns me.
