Roberts Longboat 21

Hi All.

I just purchased a second hand Roberts Longboat 21 ft. It has 2 broken windows and I am wondering if anyone has the window dimensions/plans for this particular boat and can share the dimensions. I've tried going direct to Roberts Boats but they said I need to purchase the entire plans just to obtain the window dimensions.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Roberts Longboat 21

Welcome aboard Knackers.

I can't help directly but let me say that the very few Roberts Longboat 21s that I have seen have had different sized windows. Some (many?) Longboats were amatuer finished and as such, the plans weren't always followed in detail.

Could you not measure the existing broken windows or even just the hole they were in and go from there?

Cheers guys, great to be aboard.

Thanks Wotname, I'll remove the old windows and have them copied. I didn't realise some of the longboats have different window sizes.
