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!!

Are you sure that your sail emblem is not a dutch sabot? If so and if it is a pram type hull it is a Naples Sabot. There are thousands of them around mostly in southern California.

I know this post is fairly old, however, I do have the very same dinghy in my basement. A 8't red Sinbad Sailing Dinghy manufactured in West Bend Wisconsin.
