Jolie Brise is a French Pilot Cutter built in 1913 and used today as a sail training boat winning Tall Ship's races.
18 months ago I stepped on board the Jolie Brise in Hamble to measure up and photograph. The underwater plans were found in a book and formed the basis of the 1/10 scale drawings. The previous 1/50 and 1/20 drawings were useful but inconsistant.
Drawing the stern bulwark details defeated me (trained draughtman) so it was built from basic dimensions, the photos and how it felt. The 3d shape turned out to be logical.
Planking and painting have taken for ever.  The next taks is to design the Main Sail winch, the sheet is 6.2m long. That what comes from buildig big.
Goto my website to see the hull's shape on video and full constructional details.
Plus online calculators for deck camber, sail drum diameters, Wind loads at different heights, lead ballast density....
The plans need to be corrected. The deck fitting are drawn as I make them
I have a cd/dvd of  Jolie Brise phots and I am in the process of getting permission to publish them, copyrights. 
Anybody interested in taking off a GRP mould?

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
