Question about this sailboat plan?
« on: September 25, 2011, 12:53:51 PM »

Recently, I`ve downloaded this plans and I have a small problem. I printed them on A3 paper and found out that I have problem. Some plans are in 1:15, some in 1:20 and some in 1:10 scale. Could someone tell me how to print them and make them equal so I can build this sail.

Here is the plan

This is a general problem with  "free plans".  Probably done to slow us down.

The answer is to go to a commercial printer and have them individually scaled to match whatever scale you want them at.  Or you could try doing it on a computer and its not easy.  %)
