Title: sail details for Falmouth workboat or Oyster dredger
Post by: Martin [Admin] on April 09, 2014, 05:53:36 pm
via email to Mayhem...

....today I saw someone asking for sail details of a Falmouth workboat or oyster dredger. The hull is obviously one of mine, I made a whole lot of them for the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, they commissioned the original hull. A pic of the sail details is attached, thereís also a nice pic of my own fully rigged prototype model on the Newsletter page on the KM website.

Hope this helps someone, Iíll leave the rest up to you.

Good Lord! "Kayem", as I live and breath! Mayhem members from a decade ago will recall his contributions. Nice to see you're still bringing quality GRP mouldings to the masses, Robin. Come back to the forum occasionally, old thing - your hobby needs you.

Take each dimension from Robin's plan and multiply it by 0.73 to get the corresponding one for your model.

Regiment,
don't think so
260 x 0.73 = 189.8
which is near enough = 190mm in real life
 ;)
damn, those wee dots on the plastic brain (calculator) are hard to see.

Sorry for the confusion. I misread the O/A length as the hull length. In fact the hull length in the drawing is 555mm, which is the same as 22", so the hull you have is the Kingston Mouldings one - or one the same size. That means you can use the dimensions shown on the drawing above without needing to scale them.
(Don't you feel a berk when you screw up trying to help someone?)
