Elessina - Scanned CAD Drawing
This drawing is a scan from a paper drawing. The AutoCad file drawing is owned by Piper Boats, who have the exclusive use of the design and drawings. From the AutoCad drawings every single steel sheet can be automatically plasma cut to within around 1mm tolerance, with each sheet numbered for ease of fabrication.
The drawing shows separate front and rear cabins, not linked by the walk-through passageway. The walkway feature was established after the drawing was produced. The Floor level is indicated by the blue line (just below the water level line), but we raised the floor in the front cabin by 200mm (retaining 6'-4" headroom) and in the rear by 400mm where the bed / table is located. This effectively 'widens' the usable floor space. The wheelhouse is not a true reflection of the end design, which is of Iroko construction.
