    I saw this boat and the site you speak of. I have never seen any way of downloading it. I think it's a one off. If I could find some line drawings..........

    The model is super simplified, especially noticeable when you look at a picture of the real one below. I have found a lot of drawings, but ships like these are a major project to undertake. Definitely not a "quickie", not a nicely designed one, anyways. :)

    I am thinking about banging this out really quick, you interested Inky? It would be a generic, but easily identifiable as that type of ship. Essentially, my own design. Send me a P.M. if so. :)

    I can tell you how much they cost, the different companies who make these very similar boats and the lead time for construction. Line drawings and Lofting lines are what's important here. :)
