Re: LB26 Scaling

BTW, to scale, you can use the DXF files. That would make it easier. Don't focus too much on galley size and headroom. Headroom is really irrelevant: you can stand in front of the galley and almost stand in the head. 1" difference is not worth troubles. I don't have an Autocad software. How do I vi...

Re: LB 26 Understanding plan drawings

No worries. In the process you also cleared up some other things for me. I was redrawing for scaling purposes and needed them clarified. Appreciate the quick response. Thanks.

Re: LB 26 Understanding plan drawings

From what you point out 1+ is actually between station 0 and 1. So, 0+ would be halfway forward of 0. Correct? if you look at the picture from the specifications book (A283_1) the station 0 hull bottom is 369mm above DWL. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88813/Station0.jpg However, on the ...

LB26 Scaling

Jacques, I tried to scale the plan @7, 10 and 13% and figured out some general measurements. Looks like 10% meets my wish list but the beam is above the 8'6" NY State limit. This will require a wide load permit which brings some headaches in trailering restrictions and permits. Have to ask again. Ca...

LB 26 Understanding plan drawings

I'm trying to sketch out the scaled model and having trouble the measurements between different sheets in the drawings. 1. The station 0+ is halfway between 1 & 2? i.e. at 355mm between 1 & 2? 2. Having trouble matching the measurements on the specification book and plan sheet. For example, on the s...

Re: LB26 build in Long Island

Sorry, I don't monitor the non-technical sections. I will check on Monday but I think the berths fit between bulkheads and that should give you the length. If it doesn't, it means that the final dimensions of the furniture are up to you: we always give dimensions for all the bulkheads, stringers an...

Re: LB26 build in Long Island

The drawings on the study plans page are to scale: http://bateau.com/studyplans/LB26_study.htm?prod=LB26 You can measure everything from there. It is not a 1:12 or 1:20 scale but if you print the picture and measure the length, you will get the scale like: 7.5" on the picture = 26'. Take all the di...
