Item details

Plan: 942

Scale: ½” – 1’0”

The Zulu was perhaps one of the finest of all Scottish fishing types in the days of sail, and these drawings are the result of a complete survey of one of the last to survive.

The survey was carried out by Mr. George McLeod of Stornoway when the vessel was finally laid up for breaking up, and much otherwise inaccessible details were obtained during the process.

The plans were prepared from that survey by Harold A. Underhill, and copies lodged with the Society of Nautical Research for preservation.  The plans are not drawings of a model, but full constructional details of the original vessel and include specifications of scantlings, painting, stores and gear.
