At BristolChannelCutter.org we get asked continually for plans, and I know in the past we tried to hard to source a set ourselves unsuccessfully.
I think we would all agree that we would love to hear from the Lyle Hess estate so that we could each purchase a set of plans for various BCC sizes in an appropriate and legal manner.
Unfortunately, no one seems to have been successful, so I propose that one option would be for those of us with some plans (we have a partial set for Ubique - a 32’ BCC) could contribute high-res copies to a publicly available document library with clear details etc - so that a complete set of plans could be made available to interested parties, and the class can continue to grow - rather than die.
I would also suggest this library has a very prominent copyright notice explaining the risks and inviting the owners of Lyle’s designs to approach us so that we can help get a system in place to ensure that copyright can be successfully purchased.
So… I’d appreciate to hear from you all on this matter, in this forum.
I think I also need to get a sense of who might be able to help provide plans, so if you could potentially help, then can you email me directly via bristolChannelCutter.org to maintain your privacy please.
