Need a half hull of my boat, any artists here?

I need a half hull model of my boat, around 1 meter or 4 feet long, to put in my living room.

Are there any good wood artists here that can make me one?? I looked in several places and sites where they specialize at making them, but they ask for ridiculous amounts of money...I don't need them.

If someone here knows how to do them, from original plans and photos I'd love to have have one.

It doesn't have to be very well finished, (I can finish it later), and if that someone just makes the hull, I can finish it with the deck and the board it is attached to. I can also make the keel and rudder. I really would be happy with the hull only. But finished is fine too.

Thanks

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I sent you a PM, see if that's what you call the lofting diagrams.

Alex,

I seem to recal a company on the east coast of US that will bmake you a half hull of your boat. Unfortunetly at this time, the company name escapes me. If your back here in US anytime soon, pickup the mags here, or I will look and see what I can find later tonight. Or possibly go to the woodenboat site, and see if their is someone that can do this thru those mags adds.

SanderO is an unknown quantity at this point
I've done them for myself and another yacht. You need a set of waterline plans. It's not all that hard to do. You need a jig saw too.

If you want to order one, I might be able to do it. Here's my hulll in maple and mahogany.

Giu, There's a ship model business located down the hill from me with reasonably priced half-hulls. If you don't mind molded resin, that's what they provide, after carving a wooden "plug" of your boat.
