Cheers Tom, I think that will do it!

If I trip up on the bulkheads, I'll let you know.

Requested an original scan but no reply. Photoshop and a pdf would have resulted, free to all.

Regards Ian.

Hi Ian,

Do you have a scan?

It's not my intention to clean up a scan but I always redraw in CAD, I often post my work here with the laser cut files but I don't think anybody ever uses them.

Edit: Did you request a scan too? I've searched long and hard for a good scan for months and didn't find anything.

Hey Gen,

The scan is good enough. I started drawing with the boat at exactly 20" long because that was a nice round number, I then decided that I should stick to the original 19" and started again from scratch. I'll post them here when done but no promises how long its going to take.

If you do make a scan then Ian would be able to stitch them back together and clean them up. His skills are pretty legendary.
If possible, a full size scan is always best. Are there any printing bureaus, print shops or similar near you. A scan should be around $5 or so.

That`s Great. Is there more plans or do the formers need scanning? This kit has never been touched before, it just sat for 10 years in my garage
