Pops, that change you made to the bow looks outstanding and much more like the original Orca (Warlock)

A lot of people try to build a boat that they saw in a movie, like "Jenny", "Orca", "Minnow" and the like, which gets kind of old---.

For inspiration, and maybe a fresh change of subject material, they should go down to the docks---.

Yes Sir your right but for my inspiration is copy the vessel to it spec's with out plans, that is the challenge in life and the fun part of model making.

Remember Karl- it may be old for YOU... but for someone who hasn't built that subject before, it's all new and shiny!

Actualy the best start for an Orca is Greg Hiltz's 35'' fiber glass Cape Islander hull with a straight shear instead of a raised foredeck. With that you have the correct hull for the ORCA/WARLOCK.

"42 Orca


Man, thats looking good.....I too, am building a "42 Orca myself.
For the record, the real "Orca" from the movie JAWS was in fact,
'42 ft. long - as why I am using "1 = '1 ft. scale.....seems to me you and
I are the only ones going "42 long......
You have any updates ???

DAVID, the orca/warlock was 39 feet long not 42'. When they added the brace under the pulpit attached to the forestem, they may have counted that as the overall lenght but the Warlock as built was 39' This is according to the spec's in STEAMSHIP WORLD. We had this discussion in another thread.
