These plans are sold at a nominal charge to allow purchasers to gain an insight into the nature of the vessel and the extent of, as well as the quality of the drawings which comprise the working drawings. This information will assist in making the decision to whether to purchase the full drawings or not. The extent of the information in Study Plans naturally depends on the size of the vessel and the number of sheets which comprise the working drawings. Study plans generally consist of selected views at reduced scale of the working drawings and should not be scaled in an attempt to build without purchasing the working drawings.
An examples of Study Plans is that for SCAMP which is a 10foot dinghy.
Two A4 pages of descriptive info.
Two A4 drawings and pictures of boats under construction and completed.
The number of sheets and other information provided with a Stock Plan varies with the vessel under consideration and again taking SCAMP as an example, the full design package consists of :-
Sh.1 Outboard profile and Sail Plan
Sh.2 Inboard profile and ½ Breadth Plan
Sh.3 Building Jig, Transoms and Midships Building Frame
Sh.4 Spars, Rudder, Centreboard and Fittings List.
Sh.5 Materials list, Plywood cutting schedule and construction details
Seven A4 pages of How to Build Instructions
Notes on Plywood
Notes on Stitch-n-Glue Construction
As SCAMP is a small boat, a little thought will reveal that both the Study Plan and the full Design Package for larger vessels will be much larger e.g for SUPER SCOOTER the drawings run to 13 large sheets and many A4 pages How to Build Instructions and “Notes”
All drawings and other design info. is copyrighted and may not be reproduced without written permission. Stock Plans are sold for the construction of one boat only and include a design royalty for one boat. If more than one boat is built to the plans an additional design royalty is payable.
