A tremendous model of this unique and famous racer. I do hope you will post your trawler build for us all to enjoy. It's also good to see the Surfury site finally, back online:

good evening James, and how are you?

On the plans for the Archer I found that it was frames 6 & 7 which would not correspond and I therefore had to alter them.  However, after building this one, I went on to build the Sea Lady and once again encountered similar problems with the framing.    Upon further investigation though with a club member there is a strong indication that the faults on the plans are indeed a printers fault.  This is because several water lines and buttock lines on both drawings do not match up - we came to the conclusion that when you originally drew the plans on your drawing board - they would have been on 2 separate sheets (the full set of drawings).  Therefore, when they go to the printers the printer would electronically move the drawn items around on the sheet so they can be located in the finished print and this moving around electronically must distort and mis-size the actual finished item.   So, any minor/very small discrepancy on your drawing board would be greatly enlarged when come to print.   Maybe a word with Model Boats plans service may be in order.

Kind regards,

John

Do you still have the originals as it would make for a complete thread.
