    Default Folkboat plans

    Hi all ,

    I am contemplating the renovation of a wooden Nordic Folkboat (1949) .I wonder if someone could let me know where could I get a copy of the original plans. In addition to that, any additional information or links about Folkboat restoration projects would be very welcome.

    Regards,

    I restored a folkboat in northern california. I was never able to track down an actual set of plans. I usually just copied the dimensions of pieces that i replaced. Here is a link to some photos of the process feel free to send me a PM if you have anymore questions.

    There was a very nice book published about Folkboats a few years ago. I'm sure the plans are published in it.

    I believe you can get the plans from the Nordic Folkboat International Association, http://www.folkboat.com/, check it out.

    The "plan plans" are not in the book but you should be able to find them on here somewhere...use the search function.
    PS Kerry's thread ("A Folkboat Found Me") is an unreal source of information/inspiration.

    We had some correspondence with Peter Ament, Secretary Nordic folkboat international Association at Folkboatuk2@aol.com some five years ago.

    If Peter's still Secretary, he can supply you with an authentic copy of original Folk Boat plans, first drawn in 1942, or direct you to where you can get them.

    The only 'upgrade' in plans is translation into English; the originals, of course, are in Swedish. Otherwise, every line drawn is exactly the same as the first FB ever built.
