If it's not you, and it's not public domain, then posting plans is a violation of copyright.
Location: New York That plan is one from the Smithsonian's collection of plans, maintained by the History of Technology Division of the National Museum of American History. Location: Sweden I can agree with marshmat and Robert but I have two questions regarding this.
Are designers today exposed to the same problem as the "problem of illegal downloading" as the music or film industry?

If it?s of interest to you read the notes that go with the source material for the drawings. Location: Eustis, FL Having met and discussed boat design at length with the very man that drew those plans I can assure you he didn't sneak around, pulling lines from vessels, by flashlight probably, in the middle of the night. His process was quite simple, to preserve the lines of types that would soon become extinct (his assumption, usually quite accurately so). I met him at the end of his life, when he wished he had more time to catalog the craft he felt he missed, but was no longer the man able to perform this task. Buy the plans Boreas, they're very inexpensive and he'd loved the idea they were doing what he hoped it would, spark interest in a type long gone.
I said, ?He didn?t get permission but instead he snuck around in the middle of a moonless night and stole them.? and I thought it was extreme enough that nobody would take it seriously. Location: Cathlamet, WA The point I tried to make was that Chapelle likely had no permission from the designer or the builder to make those drawings in most cases.

Location: Trondheim, NORWAY It's a complicated question with no simple answers. If the design office is still in business or the boat is still in production, you have to ask. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.

The LODESTAR design features all-steel construction of the hull, keel, deck, and cabin, welded together for incredible strength. While the LODESTAR has the strength to sail in virtually any sea, the emphasis has been placed on cruising of the "island hopping" or touring type (we've given a centerboard option if shoal draft is necessary).
The forepeak has been devoted to utilitarian duties instead of fitting less-than-usable vee-berths here which are so common in other boats.
Topside, the cockpit is spacious, yet well-protected, and the raised aft deck can accommodate two dinghies, if desired. Plans, including Layout and Structure Drawings plus a complete Vessel Specification and Equipment List.
Our detailed NC cut files include all internal structure and plating for the hull, deck, and cabins. Before considering changes to any stock design, it is best to consult with the original designer of the boat. If our proposal is acceptable and you elect to engage our services, the design work can begin.
You may be surprised to discover that creating a new yacht design costs less than you think.

They sell copies at a very reasonable price and it would be both safer and more polite to buy a set instead of using a photocopy. Is a copyright valid forever, or is it like the music buisness, something like 50 years after the rightholders death. What aould be the legal consequece if you build a boat after someones drawings without paying a royalty? It contains the known background and written interviews with the owner and other interested parties. He was a unique work of art, a true artist, historian, fine draftsman, builder and yacht designer. Instead of cramming in numerous berths, we've kept the accommodations to three couples, plus space for an extra "stowaway" if necessary, all with luxury, sound control, and privacy paramount.
The galley will be the chef's delight, with plenty of work room and space for all appliances, including a washer and dryer opposite. I think there is no copyright on plans held by the Smithsonian but I think the book you copied from does have a copyright held by W.W.

Is it legal to create and build a "replica" built on limited information like a line drawing found on internet? In fact there is a published book that details how to document historic boats and what paperwork needs to be prepared and also covers the necessary permissions. It was also his hope, that his drawings (generally, not a complete plan set, but enough for an experienced builder or designer, needing reference material) would continue to foster recreations, evolutions of the type, restorations and reproductions. He took liberties, at times, a lot of heat over the USS Constellation (he was right after all, long before anyone would admit it publicly) was an opinionated, stubborn and grouchy individual, but I loved him, just because he wouldn't conform, if for no other reason (it was the late 60's and non-conformity was a thing for me at the time).
People that work hard to document old designs before they vanish are normally paid by museums. However as this is a second-hand boat she doesn't have the original plans, and she bought it (or her) with its (hers) interior already modified.
Through careful hull design, we've moderated the chines into rounder, more attractive softer lines, making a lean hull that offers sparkling performance, considering its size and weight. The double headed ketch rig with club-footed jib is easy to handle and offers a wide array of sail combinations. This work is usually paid for by a grant from someone and the paperwork to document both the boat and the use of the money is beyond belief. He thought I was a brash young pup, that needed a good *** whipping, though he liked my sailing skills, particularly against the blue bloods.
So it make sense to buy plans from the museum, even if it's just for the wall in your workshop.
Even tough I've been on the hunt for some time now I have not been able to find any shred of useable information about the original interior layout. Since this is a large design and there is so much to tell about it, we suggest purchasing the Study Plans if more information is desired. An inside helm is optional in the deckhouse, primarily for use under power in foul weather. I might also add that some things aren?t copyrighted and old boats aren?t likely to have been copyrighted at all.
