The very detailed plan set is in PDF format tiled onto 61 Pages - this can be printed out on a home A4 printer to save on costs printing large sheets. Set paper size in the print options in the Adobe print menu - ensure paper size setting is correct. Think big - make a model Oil Tanker, this ship does the job of an oil production platform, it is a post panamax oil tanker size, a great project that will produce a unique model.
This is a large scale model Alaskan Crab Fishing Boat project that was started in September 2012. The free plans are for a 1:28 scale model of a fishing vessel that is similar to the Cornelia Marie Crab Fishing Boat featured in Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch.
The model was made using a foam core which was hollowed out after covering with Epoxy Resin and Glass Fiber matting.
The Ballast used was concrete which was poured into the bottom of the hull after removing the Expanded Polystyrene Foam with a cutting blade and the remaining foam brushed with Acrylic Thinner to melt the foam. The concrete once cured and aged was covered with a coat of Epoxy Resin to provide a waterproof surface. Powered by a 24v high torque motor run on 12v, the Model Crab Fishing Boat uses a large Octura x472 propeller that is normally used with a 26cc Zenoah Petrol Engine to power an RC Racing Power Boat.
Due to the considerably slower RPM than the prop is designed for, the power train only uses 2 Amps at full speed and propels the model boat way faster than a scale speed at full power. Floatation and ballast was checked and the hull loaded with dry cement and sand to achieve an approximate scale waterline with the power battery and motor installed. The Devil is In The Detail, and the longest and most difficult part of the build project is the detailing. Painting the Model Alaskan Crab Fishing Boat - normal cans of Automotive Acrylic Spray Paint was used after preparing the surface with two good coats of primer. The paint work is protected by 4 layers of Clear Acrylic Spray which is lightly sanded between coats.
I am exploring the possibility of commercial fishing wherein the model would attempt to downsize all aspects of the operatiopnin a similar fashion to modern small-scale farming. I built mine for $600 in materials, 3 weeks labor, and powered it with a used motor that I'm into for $500. Spokaloo- As I was writing this design brief I thought of the Lumberyard Skiff and your experiences with her.


It gets rowed as a shoreline work boat, and also I use the oars for a trolling motor when I'm trolling for trout or moving the shoreline casting the docks for bass. Trick I've found is to set your oarlocks relatively far forward so that you weight the bow and keep the forefoot wet, while picking up as much weight at the transom as possible. A big advantage is being able to work and stand right on the outside of the deck reaching straight down over the vertical sides. Spokaloo- I know you run your 16' LYS with a 30 HP, would 25 HP be underpowered for this application?
I actually blew up the lower unit on that 30 this winter (it wasn't in deep enough water and night temps were 14F), so I'm now running a 25. The fisherman might be going after clams, oysters, shrimp as well as flounder and redfish. The standard small boat for a one small boat commercial fishing operation in your area is the heavily built 20 - 22 foot fiberglass Carolina Skiff with a largish (90 - 115 minimum) Yamaha outboard. Remember the requirement to keep a catch fresh adds a lot of weight to a boat - either live wells or lots of ice.

You will notice that the bridge superstructure is at the opposite end (bow) to a normal Tanker.
The Model Alaskan Crab Fishing Boat Scale Model weighs in at just under 17kg to give it a scale water line.
A fair amount of Expanded Polystyrene Foam was left in place at the bow and stern to act as floatation should the hull fill with water. No specific reason for the choice of prop - I had one in my RC box and it pulled the right amount of Amps for the speed I wanted.
A little bit of overkill but when you have a large carrier bag full of burned out speed controllers, looking at extra amperage is far better than looking for it! The remaining ballast will be added at a later test to achieve the balance and correct waterline once the model is finished.

A garvey or a sharpie skiff are the primary conveyance of baymen ( aka, small-scale commercial fisherman).Plenty of stock designs out there. But for the kind of work you describe a boat with vertical topsides ( no flare) allows you to stand up right at the side of the boat.
It's been a tank, and gets used for all sorts of work, like this morning we ran 2 hours worth of water samples over 10 miles of lake. In fact, a couple weeks ago, I was rowing with 700lbs of human load and she pulls reasonably well. Never even seen one in the flesh,but from your requirements,i would say she would fit the bill,and the budget perfectly.
She's stiff enough as-is, though I think I'm going to add another thickness of rubrail eventually.
Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. I find the best way is a compromise and those extra little details can be added in between projects on a rainy day. Not because it needs to be stronger per se, but because I am really hard on it and I used Spruce so it is taking a beating. Never shipped much water, but where we crab it might be best to have the protection of a splashwell. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois). Keep in mind that's not well mounting the outboard, just a little addition to the front of the transom so if any water slops in, it drains back out.
