Hello,

My name is Kees de Mol, I am 26 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I am a member of the MKCN (Model Trawler Club Holland) www.mkcn.nl

Currently I am building a model of a small Eurokotter fishingvessel. The ship was build at Padmos Shippingyards in Holland.
The model I am making is in scale 1-50 and is 48cm long. Here is a link to oms fotoīs of the model. http://www.modelbouwforum.nl/forums/...urokotter.html

As you can see, the model is almost finished and thatīs the reason why I am looking for a new project to build. I decided to build a UK-trawles and on the website http://www.trawlerphotos.co.uk I found beautifull trawlers like the FR 927 or the BF 500 and I really want to build a trawler like these.
In Holland, models of these ships are very rare so it would be nice to build a ship like this.

On your website i found a small technical drawing of a 9.95m Aft Wheelhouse Trawler and you would really help me a lot if you could help me with some bigger plans. The most difficult for me is to build the hull so I am kindly asking you if you can help me with a plan and/ore some dimensions.

I will not use these drawings for commercial purposes only for private use. If you have any modelbuilders around, I might have some drawings of some Dutch beamtrawlers in exchange.
If you like I will send you a building report with fotoīs as soon as i start to build the model. Offcourse I will put the name of your company next to the model

Sincerely yours,

Kees de Mol 


So if anyone can help me or can bring me in contact with an owner, please contact me. I got plans and info in return.

Greetings Kees

Hello Kees,
you will find photos on www.trawlerphotos.co.uk and www.shipsnostalgia.com. On the shipsnostalgia website you have to tell them when registering that you want to access the fishing vessels section, otherwise you will not see it
Best Wishes

Kees there are several vessels in this design class and if you contact jonah on Trawlerphotos he may be able to supply you with more photos as he was skipper of a close sister ship to the Propitious FR927
