Study Plan question.

Postby jaguarrh » Thu Feb 09, 2017 11:01 pm

Hi all,

I am preparing mentally for a Key Largo build and I note that there are n study plans available for that design.

It is my understanding that the Key Largo is a variant of the Barrelback 19'. Is there any sense in acquiring a set of the study plans for this boat in order to do some initial thinking towards the Key Largo? Or, are these boats actually quite different from each other?

Regards
Rob

The real difference is the removal of some deck beams and adding the longer carlings. The description say the are the same with variations in the deck. If you already have study plans for the Barrel Back, I wouldn't think study plans for the Key Largo would be necessary.

I think that I remember that if you buy study plans, then buy a full set, Glen-L will deduct the price of the study plans.

OK, thanks for the advice.

I think I will get the Barrelback study plans, it should give me some idea re the Key Largo.

One step closer to starting...

The hull size, shape and structure are the same with obvious changes in the deck and has one other difference: the Key Largo has its engine one frame forward of the location for the Barrelback. This is something to consider when looking at the study plans for either version of this hull.
