and these are the drawings of the Royal Caroline launched in 1650 - McCarthy mentioned them in his book, according him, the line drawings show very much similarities

large (7).jpg
Scale 1:48. A drawing of the Royal yacht Royal Caroline (1750). Showing sheer lines with inboard detail, body plan with stern board, and longitudinal half-breadth. With the following inscriptions in pencil: -'This drawing represents the yacht built in 1749 afterwards (1761) renamed Royal Charlotte C.K.' -'Royal Caroline...in 1700 repaired in 1733 not from this draught One built in room of this in 1749 and her name altered to Royal Charlotte in 1761 Taken to pieces in 1830' -'R Caroline 1749 renamed R Charlotte 1761 broken up 1820'

Awesome so Basically if the plans cant be had for the exact Name "Cruiser" the Royal Caroline plans should suffice? My Aim is to try and track down Plans. I wont get to build it for some time, but I will eventually build it. My first up will be Constellation then I'll decide on This or Batavia. Gonna go look through the links provided and continue to search for plans hopefully I will find some information in the links to lead me in the right direction

I think the full plans from Ron McCarthy will avaialble from the publisher or AI am hoping thec can hook us up with somebody.

I dont think the Caroline plans are the same they just used the same hull design for the Cruiser as the Carolines hull was so successfull,the Cruiser was rigged as a Snow mentioned in the book.

Here is Conway Maritime Press website where we can ask about full size plans made by Ron McCarthy

https://openlibrary.org/publishers/Conway_Maritime_Press_Ltd

I sent a message to them from your links. searching the web for information is like work, but I do enjoy doing it even though its full of dead ends. the detective instincts we all have kicks in and I just spend all day looking sometimes weeks. I will run some deep web search also hopefully something can be found. lots of trash and viruses in those to wade through.

Received this book today already 1/3 the way through the read and its great so far. I sent an email to the published for Plan info and haven't received anything from them. one of the publishers is here in Maryland and does list an address and phone number so tomorrow morning Ill be on the phone to them.

that's possible I sent them another one anyhow as sometimes they go to spam. some of the books images could be scanned and sized but there is still much that isn't pictured or drawn. I thumbed through before the read

I have a full cross section drawing of the USS Constellation I will be trying my hand at rendering that in cad for Blueprints and submitting for a group build here. I may need some help with the process as I've never done that I use cad for drawing 3D prints but not Plans so I'm unsure of the process fully
