Can supply DXF files from you in addition to 077 plans.

Yes I can produce DXF files for this design. It will take a week or to to do. I have been intending to make DXF files for all my designs, so your question will prod me into doing them for this boat.

The flat components are reasonably quick to do because the basic drawings exist and only have to be sorted out for DXF. One of the things you have to do is make sure all the shapes form continuous lines (no tiny gaps or overlaps) – which of course don't really matter on a dimensioned drawing.

The curved components, specially the hull skin expansion and the design of the lapstrake planks is what takes up the bulk of the time. But of course it saves a lot of time when building the boat!

I'll post again when the files are available for download and also send you an email.
