You will be more than pleased with the quality of Float a Boat plan sets  :no1b....these are all hand drawn by Adrian Brewer

I have the FaB twin sets for both PS Adelaide and PS Oscar W

These provide an excellent an level of building detail

You can literally lay your scale timbers on top of the plans & see the view  :whistle

hi Damien...……...I am having problems with RCMB...…………..have tried sending you a couple of messages on it this morning and also posting on your post about the paddler plans...………..but the screen just goes blank and nothing goes through, and then the messages or posts are cancelled when I press refresh...……….think the site might be having a wobbler. I don't have Aron's email address to tell him of such...……….

however my message was about a set of plans I have seen on the float a boat site...……...the 45' Watson class lifeboat that the real boat is in a museum over in your country...…… you have paypal facilities...…...if you do would you be adverse to me sending you the money for the plans and postage for that lifeboat via paypal, and order them for me to be sent directly to me when you order the plans for your new paddler ……..if so, i'll message you on here for your email address to pay, and also my address to send them to...…...if ok with you...………… the mean time could you inform Aron via email about his site please. cheers. neil.
