Building model/rc without any template

I am wanting to make a model of a Post Yacht 55' Sportfisher yacht. It is what I go fishing in the gulf on and am wanting to do a 1/10 scale. I seriously doubt I will ever find a template for cutting out pieces so what is some advice anyone has on recreating the contours and what not of the boat? I have all the time in the world so that's no issue but any and all advice would be great. Thank you in advanced.

It will be a lot simpler if the boat is out of the water. A lot of sportfishers are similar in hull shape maybe try to find a hull that looks close and make your own topsides ?

Where are you located ?

That may be what I do, I know a Hatteras and a Post do not have much different hulls. I am located in Baton Rouge, La but fish out of Port Fourchon, La and Grand Isle, La.

It is seeming like it is going to be easy to make the hull and making the cabin and bridge is going to be the hardest part.

Thank you for those links. That was exactly what I was looking for.

And yea. The last trip that I took we went out there. We couldn't get onto any yellowfin like we were wanting but we did tear up some blackfin tuna and mackerel.
