Location: The Big Wide Blue Brother I want to thank all that have so kindly offered help, it is really appreciated.
I now have enough 2D drawing to get the 3D design started, but because of proprietary consideration, I am reluctant to post the CAD data on the forum; I am happy to send the data privately, providing the recipient respects the copyright. As a way to say thank you, I am offering a fully catered 7 days cruise for two on the cat to the person that makes the best 3D drawing.
