higgins boat series 200 plans(free)
« on: October 07, 2006, 01:45:47 PM »

hi i just received some nice plans for a 30 inch higgins boat designed by peter miller.i believe the plans were from a magazine.i have them on my computer and they open and tile with the paint programme on my computer . plus he sent me a set of build instructions taken from the magazine!!.the boat uses electric power anything from a 540 to 600 maybe a bit bigger.the guy who sent me the plan has one and his goes arround 15 mph with a 540 motor and gets on the plane nice he says ,running 7.2 volts i believe.i will be starting the build shortly as ive only just printed the plans off and taped them together but it looks like a nice easy build using balsa planks on 9 frames.also all the fittings ,guns torpedoes etc are made from the plan also with instructions on how so ill be making everything on the boat myself.here are the plans hope they work like i said i used paint to open and print and it tiled it automatic for me.im using windows xp the paint programm was on my comp when i bought it so i guess its a windows one.

hi mark glad you appreciate it if you have any problems with the plans i can email you them over i think the last two parts might not work as i had to make them smaller to get on here but hopefully that will be solved soon as martin has said he will put them on the mayhem site for me soon!!.

Got a slight problem with copyright so can't put them on Mayhem direct.
Please PM martno1fan and politely ask for him to email them to you.
