Morning Gravman !

The hull shape is good, though Kingfisher took over production of Cygnus boats, this 33 footer and a wide range of others are still being made by another company, Anderson.

Some history:

"Anderson Marine LLP is now well established as a boat building business in Peterhead, Scotland for the manufacture of Cygnus and Kingfisher GRP hulls and for the quality of its fitting out services.

The company supplies high-quality Cygnus and Kingfisher GRP fibreglass hulls in kit form or through its skilled fabrication department can provide in-shore fishermen with completed sail away boats."

You are right, since contact has been made with the owner / skipper, some Great pictures of the boat at work will help greatly in the build.

We'll see ~

Ordered some diamond plate and other material for the model, the real boat has a lot of diamond on the deck and other places:
