I completely forgot about Macduff ship designs.
I actually have quite a bit of information archived about the Macduff boats...
Thanks for that link. I just sent off an email to the designer to see if it would be possible to get some drawings. We will see......
Robert Allan was the Marine Architect that found his designs being built in China, after sending a set of
those plans to a boat modeler. There was legal action, and many design firms stopped sharing out plans
after the incident. Just a month ago, Robert Allan posted on our local boards, and "issued a cease and desist" to
a modeler that was posting a build up of one of RA designs. It probably wouldn't have been an issue, but
the modeler had gotten a hold of hull lines from a builder, and posted a partial image of the lines.
They C&D order was posted by the time the thread got to the second page, four days... http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1338105&highlight=rastar#post16545114
However, if you can build from the photos and other public information, go crazy....
I built the Fireboat that Robert Allan designed, and had no issues.
