    Default Help needed identifying a boat

    Does anyone know what boat is in the attached photo? The bronze nameplate came off a very similar boat. They would have had an Albin twin in them.
    I'm interested in building one so ideally i would like to find drawings.
    Thanks.

    Thank you all. those are somewhat larger than what I'm thinking of. Attached are three photos of the boat I saw. it was modified at one point and now serves as an outdoor bar.

    Nothing like the orignal picture posted, completely different type of boat. Try a google search on Dutch wooden "Vlet", you should find some for sale, they are still made.

    John, I don't think they will sell their plans, but you can mail them. I'm looking around for you, but up until this moment I haven't found a readable lines plan. I do have a very small drawing of a construction plan for a 5,5 meter "vlet" (=approx. 18 feet). If you measure it carefully and loft full size it will probably work. I will scan it for you and send it as a PM.
    I'm still looking for a drawing with some scantling information. I will post this later today.

    Peter

    This page is in Dutch but at the bottom you will see a drawing of a 6,5 meter vlet with some scantling information. The drawing will explain the dutch names of the different parts.

    Nice link. Still have a soft spot for those curves, very similar to the Danish beach prams.
