31" Precedent Huntsman
« on: January 14, 2014, 06:21:26 PM »

I have just become the proud owner of a 31" wooden Huntsman in need of refurbishment and topsides rebuild.


Does anyone have a set of plans I could blag a copy of? Postage/copying costs happily re reimbursed


I'll be posting pics and the refurb as soon as I start.


Cheers


Ian.

I had the pleasure of doing a similar rebuild some years ago of a 36" wooden Huntsman. I had no plans but there was enough of the original left and with the help of photo's was able to complete it.
If I can help you please just ask.

Too many Huntsmen?
The Precedent model is called Huntsman 31 (as the full-size boat is 31' long) but the kit models are 34" & 46" long. There are no plans published for these two kits, although I do have a scan of the original 46" model plans.
The MyTimeMedia plans of the Huntsman 31 are 1/12 scale so the model is 31" long. Construction is also quite different from the Precedent 34" kit. Just to add to the confusion both of the Precedent wooden kits were produced in two very different versions; band-sawn marine ply or die-cut Liteply.
Confused yet? Blame Precedent - or the current manufacturers........... (AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!)
Then there's the Swordsman  8)
