    anyone familiar with a sleepboot called Opduwer ?
    it's a little tugboat they use in Amsterdam .
    I've been searching the web for a few days trying to find plans.
    hit a brick wall.
    for such a neat boat. you would think plans would be everywhere.
    in steel/wood/aluminum ..
    but alias .. there's nothing that i can find.

    Brick wall is because google won't let you access dutch sites......

    Go here http://www.euroshipservices.nl/english/

    Scroll down to the Eurosleper 660, buy the kit and get a local welder to help you put it together....Or they might send the cut files to a local metal supplier...

    Good luck...

    thank you Joris !
    only thing is .. I'm in Missouri . no clue what it would cost to ship a boat to the states..
    i wouldn't even know how or where to begin.. :)
    most likely .. I'm going to send an email to those guys Tad is talking about.
    i know a feller in Illinois who'll build one outta aluminum ..
    let's see what the euroship folks say .
    and thank you .

    Peabody,

    It's not impossible to ship a boat to the states but it involves some work and time (and obviously money). A few years ago i investigated the costs to ship an old wooden runabout to europe and noticed quickly that it needs to fit in a container to be affordable.(around 3000euro's in my case) Making the trip to check the boat and make some arrangements and finding someone to help out can save you a lot of money because the price of transport is just one piece of the pie...

    grts,
    Joris
