Hi all, I have a wee prob with the plans.
In the book on the A4 1:1 bulkhead drawings. I have printed them out and all is good except for the Bulkhead A2, drawing has the size 135mm printed above but the plan measures 125mm which figure is correct please.
Thanks in advance

It would seem 125mm is correct. Must be a typo. If everything else on that page measures correctly then that proves the error.

My bad, Bryn.

Thanks for that, I managed to get the A1 1:1 plan printed onto A4 sheets and stuck them together, so all is good and it worked out spot on.
Thanks for the help

On this subject - is there any chance that the keel bulb length (RS750) is 250mm rather than 215mm?

Cheers,
Bob

Hi Bob, Looking at the A1 1:1 plans using corelDRAW 215mm x 30mm is correct. By using corel for all my measurements, and cutting bulkheads etc with CNC all has worked out great.

Bryn,

I'm getting 115 for my A2 bulkhead after printing at 100% on US Legal paper (which is just a bit wider and longer than A4).  Everything else, including the scale boxes, match exactly for all of the plans from the book and the various plans from the site.  Given that all of the other measurements are ok, do you think I'm ok to trace and use the A2 bulkhead as-is on the page, or should I scale up to get an A2 at 125?

Mike

Tracing the shapes is the best way to go. Bryn
