Anyone got any info on the deck layout ,winch, gun,etc' on the small Norwegian whalers that used to work around the north coast in the 50's, Ive got Jim Potingers plans for the 'Arthur' for the hull , the only thing on deck I know about is the harpoons as I used to get the job o straightning them out when I first started work with a Thurso engineering firm .

Thats the boats I'm looking for William thanks, I've worked on repairs and landing the whalemeat on them (the boss of the engineering firm was agent)but cant remember how the gun was mounted or the layout of the winch, used to get a roast o meat of them now and then , I found it good eating, but I don't suppose there's any need now to kill them.
