Line Drawings

Some time ago, my wife picked up several nautical decorations for one of the rooms in our house. Among them were three 18 X 24" framed profile drawings of classic boats done blueprint style, white lines on a dark blue background. One was of a daysailer, another of a 10' dinghy, and the last of a 32-gun frigate. I had often thought that it would be very cool to have a similar picture of my own boat among them. I found a suitable profile drawing in an old magazine review and had a friend convert it to "blueprint style" to match the others.



I am very happy with the results but I would like to take this project to the next level: I would like to get similar prints of the other boats in my "fleet." These include my daughter's Force 5 saiboat and my 8' Sinbad the Sailor dinghy.

I have found lots of photographs of Force 5 boats on the Force 5 forum, class website, and builder's website but was unable to find a profile drawing of the type that would easily convert to fit in with my existing posters.

I have been unable to find any information on the dinghy at all. All I know is that it is fiberglas, 8' long, has one set of oarlocks, and a single sleeved sail with an Arabian-type "curled-toe boot" as the logo. The boat is called Sinbad the Sailor and was built in Wisconsin.

Can anyone help me find suitable profile drawings of either boat?
Thanks!!
