Hi Martin she is 53" 1/4 long & 8" 1/4 wide  O0  from what i see from the plans  the stern will need to be re-worked as it's not the correct shape.
I have two sets of plans 1/8" & 1/4" = ft from what i can see he has used the 1/8" set.

My mistake i can only find 1/4th plans for the hull & nothing in 1/8th so i assume 1/4th is the scale, the 1/8th plans are only of the upper decks.
I assume this was to get a better view of the fittings.
