The boat was designed using some software I had written in the early 1990s (DOS running on a 386). The drawings on this page were measured off the paper copies used to build the original boat. The same 10cm grid is used to generate the offsets, although not all of these are probably needed to create a smooth curve to the edge of the planks. Click on the image to bring up a full size drawing in a separate browser window which can be printed off. At the bottom is a full size print out with all the components condensed onto a single 250cm by 56 cm drawing.
A new window will open with the plan above drawn on separate pages that can then be printed. In order to avoid compounding errors when the plan was stuck together I drew a 10cm grid on a piece of plywood and used this to align the paper. The pages of the plan were aligned with the grid and then tacked to the plywood with very small pieces of tape which would easily pull off later. The plan was then laid out and the original drawings placed over the top to verify the shapes are the same.

It says a lot for the standards of the Watercraft magazine Amateur Boatbuilding Awards that this very nicely made little boat only came second this year. True, one might complain that the material of the clinker strakes is perhaps a little slender, and tradititionalists might suggest that theĀ  knees could have been grown rather than laminated – but these seem to be small issues when set alongside the near-flawlessness of the work.

These plans include all the forms and plywood parts drawn at full size needed to build the boat. The other great labour saver was the ability of the software to send the plan to an old wide carriage dot matrix printer loaded with continuous paper. If you do this please make sure the grid is the correct size as the results do vary between browsers.
A length of sheet metal clamped to some wood as a T square was used to draw the short lines of the grid. Where the pages overlapped I cut away the margin of the page so the red tick marks in the corners and the lines could be aligned, but the grid on the plywood was always used as the master.

It is important that if the plan is used to cut the full size sections that the grid lines are checked so they are straight and the overall length and width of the grid is correct to avoid distortion.

Looking at my copy for the first time in a few years, there are some killer sets of plans – including a set of drawings for building a Cornish pilot gig and various classic American boat types. The plans were then printed off in strips, taped together, laid over the plywood and a point used to mark the edges onto the wood.

Unfortunately, the only plank of plywood I had at the time was slightly narrower than the plan, but a wider sheet would make it much easier.
When all the pages were tacked to the plywood I went over all the joins with some clear tape. The end result was far more accurate than anything I could have achieved plotting the shapes by hand. It is best to avoid stretching the tape too much when you are sticking it to the paper otherwise it tends to pull the plan in when you move it.
