SYNOPSIS:

As I had previously published four monographs of Mediterranean vessels, the 1903 Puna from the Western coast of Liguria, the 1863 tartan Gemma, the 1759 felluca Nostra Senioria del Rosario, and the 1759 Mediterranean pinky Santa Caterina, I thought of building another wooden boat, but this time a French river boat, the Arles lighter of 1833, a fl at-bottom tartan.
A small Mediterranean sailing ship that was very common in past centuries, it was rigged with a masthead cap (calcet) a lateen sail and a jib called a “polacre” on a short bowsprit. It could also carry a small square sail bent on a yard under the mast cap. Hoping to please all the readers and modelers who have followed my previous works, I am adding this small boat to the collection of Mediterranean vessels, in an attempt to expand the knowledge about a commercial and fishing fleet that was important in the French and Ligurian coastal areas and has been represented but little in our modeling world. The availability of documentation relating to this small vessel, the French maritime culture and its rich archives allowed me to collect the necessary information.

This information consists in pictorial records, documents, and manuscripts. We have collected suffi cient documentation to put together a monograph that will provide for the construction of a beautiful and well detailed and designed built-up model. The historic and graphic documentation allowed for the design of all the details of the structure and the furniture. Finally, and not least, for the addition of stern decoration, the very soul of these vessels.

Hallo @Javier Baron my friend,
I am pretty sure, that this flat bottom tartane would be a very good project for your collection?
Or do you work already on this mode?

Im not happy about it but i have to give fair warning to anyone who wishes to buy the plans that there are once again a number of fairly glarring inaccuracies. Not the excusable, historical kind but fairly basic stuff like making sure that the lines and drawings match with each other over several plans and the like.
One must wonder if Ancre still bothers with properly editing their works.

Can you give some specific examples of the inaccuracies you have found that we should be aware of? Do they render the plans useless or can they be worked around?

The most obvious issue are the floor timbers which do not have the correct height and need to be corrected.
There are some further inconsistencies on the plans themselfs (like the floor of frame 1 which is wider than the actual middle frame and im not realy certain about the beveling lines) but they are not useless, they just require extra work which might have been ok with handdrawn Boudriot plans from 30 years ago but today?
Tk11 on modelshipworld had a rather in depth look into the plans but he appears to think that despite being less than perfect, they are workable.
My problem is that the monograph costs almost a hundred bucks yet has plans that, despite being CAD drawn,
were done in a way that can only be described as sloppy.
