    Hi there

    Im trying to find anybody that may have drawn up plans of the great wee boat that Serge Testa sailed.

    I have Serges book and only vauge drawings of the boat but was wondering if over the years anybody has done a similar type of design.

    look forward to having a look.

    Acrohc

    Hi Wayne

    Can not help with plans
    However the vessel is located at the Queensland Museum (Brisbane Aust.)

    Not read his book
    But was fortunate to know him when he was building Acrohc have photos somewhere

    The single most inportant feature for the size of the vessel was a lateral plate fitted to the rudder (or stock) to dampen pitching

    Cheers

    Thanks Jelfisher.

    It appears that I wasn't too far off on the boat weight, but I severely underestimated the all up displacement.
