MM 1181 - Eowyn of Rohan, a 33in. ketch. Used to be available from MAP. Not on the X-list so still possibly available from Encanta.

Other than that, not aware of any commercially available plans for ketches. MM used also to do a yawl (MM403)

Sorry, no  - just an ancient MAP Handbook with photos of the models. I don't even know if they are still available, but someone on here may have the plans. I could scan in the page if it would help.

Hi all, The first picture as you can see is the Carribee (yawl).  I have researched this boat and have a letter from the owner in the 1950's and the book he wrote.  Anyone building her is welcome to information.  HOWEVER, the hull has been grossly distorted in the MM plans.  If you increase the size by 50% to 45 inches then you will get a more accurate huill using the Kingston Mouldings Inga IV hull.  This will need extending by a few inches at the stern but is otherwise a very good representation.
I was going to build her based on an Inga IV hull I had by me, but I was given a complete working Inga IV and came to the conclusion that I was never going to get round to it and gave the hull to a friend who builds at a prolific rate.
regards Roy

Doh that's right Roy. Think I will get the golden nectar out and try and straighten the head out a bit  :P :P
Used to go to Tasmania years ago, some little port up past Hobart, beautiful countryside I remember, also some spectacular cliffs on the way round there. The down side was the cr-p weather between you and the big island to the North!!

Yes mate the straight can get a bit bumpy, the car/passenger ferry that was running from Sydney to Devonport, came around the bottom of the mainland into 17 metre seas, it was strong enough that it pop the locks on the bow doors, they tuned around and sat out the storm  and were a day late getting in to port......

Ah memories !! I much prefer it now when I hear ' hove to ' to think it's the start of the footie results and not the prospect of being chucked around from bum-parts to breakfast time watching the seagulls paddle past you !
Anyway, better get off now as we are getting off topic and could get told off (again)

cheers
