    Hi, folks; long time, no posts. I've been pretty busy with my teaching assignments at the Nova Scotia Community College. Which brings me to my request...

    I have to give a lecture to my students outlining the rudimentary structure of a typical FRP boat (sail or power, or both). I am having a difficult time finding an illustration of this. Can anybody help me?

    The students are not boaters or boatbuilders - they are workers getting training in how to work with GRP, carbon fiber, Kevlar, etc., so blueprints of boats probably won't really get the idea across unless they are exceptionally clear. What I was sort of hoping for was the FRP equivalent of those lovely drawings that Sam Manning did as a poster for WoodenBoat that showed, in three stages and elevated three-quarter perspective, the labelled components of a wooden boat. I don't have time to create the illustration in Rhino or somesuch program, so am looking for an illustration that I can import to a program like PhotoShop and add labels and arrows.

    So... Anybody got, or know of, a perspective illustration of a boat hull with the deck & interior removed, showing stringers, engine beds, bulkheads, etc. that I can use in my classroom to show students what parts are what?

    Thanks for your time & efforts on behalf of my students in the Composites Fabricator Technican Program.

    It's not exactly what I was looking for, Charlie, but thank you for your efforts on my behalf.

    A better solution was offered in a different thread.


    Best regards,

    Michael
