Plan packs...do they exist?
« on: September 05, 2010, 01:33:11 PM »

Is it possible to buy a "plan pack", i.e. a hull, plan and other hard to buy / fabricate bits for say a 1m class yacht?

Hi,

I have been doping a search for my son and came up with the following.

Bought a disc off E-bay with a substantial number of plans.
Quite a number of Yachts are included. Also had drawing software etc. on the disc.
Cost three pound inc postage.
Here are the links.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Model-Boats-R-C-plans-100s-Disc-/190439857561?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item2c57199d99#ht_1841wt_1137

I was also recommended the following book.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Build-Radio-Controlled-Yacht-Step/dp/1844860434

As for kits there are many suppliers best do a web search and check the main suppliers of molded and other hulls.

Regards,

Allan.

I don't know about a 1 metre, but MMI have some plans with associated packs, the hard bits cut out ready! Wee Nip is one I believe.

The book arrived and includes a full plan and very detailed construction details which are applicable to building of yachts.
I strongly recommend it to all scratch yacht builders.
