I haven’t seen anything like this on LJ’s, so I figured I would post them up. A long time ago, my Grandfather made half-hull models of various sailboat and rowboat hulls. I believe his earliest one was made in 1966.
The first 2 I have hanging in my apartment, and the second 2 are part of a 4 boat set that is hanging in my parents house. To give a representation of size, #1 is about 21” long, #2 is 30” long, and #3 and 4 are roughly 16” long.
The lines through the middle of #1, 3 and 4 represent the design waterline of the hulls.
