I hope this is the right place to post this.

I ran across this site where the designer graciously allowed his unlimited hydroplane plans to be put on the site that can be downloaded. They range from the real early shovelnose to just before the turbine area, although that one wouldn’t be hard to convert. Some are listed in different scales, but it wouldn’t be hard to convert to whatever scale you want. Even 1/16 would be a good size model at roughly 25in. I want to do one of the shovelnose ones from the 50’s or 60’s, wouldn’t be hard or expensive to build out of balsa. I have a small forest of balsa leftover and I’m really thinking of trying one of these.

Posting it here is fine......at 25" that's a pretty good sized boat.

Thanks for posting that Slingshot. That's really going to help the boat builders on the site.
