Hi double0622,
Have a look on the Marine Modeling International web site.
I think it's a Canadian log pusher plan number MAR2330.

I ordered the plan for this and its not the same boat, the plan is 'basic' in the extreme, nothing more than a glorified 'General Arrangment'...
There are several pics of that type of boat on the IG SpezialSchiffe website that I think I will have to use to 'guestimate' the dimensions.
The MM plan shows a very 'rounded' hull fore & aft, I much prefer the squared look aft on the german boat.
