Need help with sail plan for Maldon oyster smack. Please
« on: December 23, 2010, 11:18:19 AM »

I have a hull plan for 1/12 scale Maldon oyster smack but don't have a sail plan or general deck arrangement plan. I have searched the internet but don't seem to be able to find anything of relevance. So hoped some one on here might be able to help.

Cheers for that they are pics of the actual boat that I'm hoping to make but I need the length of the mast and boom and thats not easy to get from pics.

Looking at the front page of that site http://www.oystersmack.org.uk/ it says she's 30 feet long.   I'd imagine it would be possible to use that dimension to scale the spars etc from that info using the side on picture on the front page.   Not absolutely accurate but close enough to look right I'd think.
