Vic Smeed Rorqual bulkhead drawings wanted
« on: June 12, 2019, 11:52:29 PM »

Hi, I am hoping to build a mini version of Rorqual, I built the full size model many years ago, with a merco 61 in it. Sadly it and the plan are long gone so I want to draw up my mini sized plan as close to original proportions as possible. I have a fairly decent side view so could manage with either bulkhead drawings or a decent top view or both if possible. Many thanks in advance, Andy.

Would this do? I've traced it full-size in CorelDraw and also have a PDF copy of that tracing - that's if Chas doesn't have what you need anyway.

Hi , thats perfect, and very quick, thanks very much. Do you have the rest of the text by any chance? Not critical that I have it, but would be interesting read. I built mine from the plan without seeing this article. I will try and look out photos of mine to put on here. Thanks again, Andy.

Amazing, thanks very much. When I built mine, I had no idea that they hadnt built the model before releasing the plan. Turned out to be very good, even with a heavy merco 61 in it. Wasnt through choice, it was only marine motor I had.

Here are some old pics of my rorqual. The photo of me holding it up is to drain water out after it sank in 6 feet of water.
