Default JAWS "Orca" Inshore Fishing Boat Plans

Hello everyone

I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have had a itch recently to build myself a scale Orca replica the old fishing boat that appeared in the first Jaws Movie. I am looking for scale plans and any other information that may come in handy for reference material etc.. i have seen a couple of things about Cornwall model boats has a set of plans but they do not look that scale. I did also see a set of plans used from a guy called Paul Tritle but those plans dont seem to have any kind of keel and i'm pretty sure Orca had a keel on her? i maybe totally wrong on that BTW.

Any help or advice would be great.

Thank you

Without the appropriate payment to Universal Studios who own and guard the copyright,, nobody can publish plans for, or produce a model or kit of, Orca as seen in the movie. A shark fishing boat of similar appearance would be another story. Just a question of using the right search parameters and getting lucky.

I saw a guy who made the Orca from Pat Tritle plans, bud added a lot of details based on the movie's scenes, really a nice job
