The home of the "Backyard Renegade"
Here is a
Quote from Ira's Dory plans I wholly agree with.
"A problem I think most people have who would like to try a project like this but don't, is that after looking at projects done by amateurs and professionals in the glossy boat publications, they're scared off, because they don't think they can recreate the perfection seen in the magazines. To that I say, well maybe not, but you can turn out a reliable and functional boat anyway. And there is something very rewarding about doing it yourself. As for appearance, if you use some care I think you'll surprise yourself."
Originally Ira developed these plans in a Design Program called CadStd by Apperson and Daughters. A free version of this software can be found at http://www.cadstd.com. I have taken them and put them into a few more formats below.
The original .CAD files and a text file with basic instructions as to how to build the boat are here.___CAD.ZIP/17 KB
The same files in Bitmap format can be found here.___BMP.ZIP/42 KB
A copy in Autocad "DXF" can be found here.___DXF.ZIP/18 KB
JPG's can be found here.___JPG.ZIP/80 KB
Why, I don't know but I did "GIF" files too and they are here.___GIF.ZIP/36 KB
you go, I have covered the spectrum however I will not guarantee that these
files will open on your computer and if they don't please don't flame me I did
the best I can. If you have trouble with these and write me a nice letter I may
help...if I happen to be in a good mood!
