- Apr 12, 2005Yes, lofting is required. Rescue Minor is built the old-fashioned way on a
strongback. A fellow who'd posted here built a large-scale model of Rescue
Minor (how's the full-size one coming Richie?) and reported trouble twisting
the bilge panels into place at the bow. He resorted to batten-seam
construction there. The plans call for 3/4" plywood planking, which is
A Universal Atomic Four would probably be the easiest suitable used engine
to find. Lots of perfectly good ones have been pulled out of sailboats and
replaced with diesels by owners afraid of gasoline. Try to find one with a
straight through gearbox, no reduction. Here are some good Atomic Four
