    Default 28' Norwegian fishing boat

    I found these plans when going trough my ďarchiveĒ. I measured the, at least 100 year old, boat up almost 30 years ago, in conjunction with restoration and as a base for a sail plan.

    The boat was used for fishing in the Hardangerfjord in western Norway. The primary catch was sprat, using seine nets. The propulsion was by three pair of oars. Later on it was probably towed to the fishing grounds by a small ship and the oars only used when setting the seine nets.

    Itís double ended, lapstrake construction in fir, with oak keel, stem and stern. Itís easily driven and perform well under sail, carrying a main-, topsíl, jib and flying jib.

    The mains'l is a boomless gaff. I will see if I manage to find the sail plan.

    The waterlines are not fair. But not so surprising as the draftsman has faired out the knuckles caused by the angles at the plank lands.
    A good solution to that problem is to draw the breaths and elevations of the plank lands rather than water lines. The buttocks and sections can then be plotted accurately,
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    A very nice boat.

    I always thought that type was from further south and east on the Norwegian coast.
