Hope someone can assist or point me in the right direction..
I'm searching to find who a particular boat plan / original drawings were sold too. (who purchased them off Samson)
One of the notes on the plan says:
"May not be reproduced in part or in whole other than the construction of one vessel without permission of Samson Marine
design Enterprises Ltd"
So I presume someone somewhere must have a list of who purchased the designs in the first place and who in the end made the hull
The boat plans are from "Samson Marine Design Enterprise Ltd" (Navel Architects & Consultants)
And the details ont he plan are:
53ft 6" Schooner
C.F.Norris also says: S.N.A.M.E
27th October 1972
During the 70's / 80's there was a lot of self build ferro
cement boats some professionally built and some not, a lot of the bad ones never got finished and ended up in backyards around the world. This one did get finished and we are trying to find who built the hull
I have searched all over for Samson
& Hartley designs and alot takes me back to a website Ferroboats.com who don't seem to know of this boat "Colin Brookes" from Hartley & Brooks says it didnt exist even though I have the plans in front of me, I am not sure if Richard Hartley (Part of Hartley & Brooks) is the original Hartley from Samson Hartley or not, and understand that Samson has passed away now. Either way Hartley & Brooks don't seem to know of this boat.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where I could find further information on this.
The address for Samson Marine enterprises Ltd at the time was: 833 River Road, Richmond, Vancouver, B.C, Canada
Fingers crossed here.
