Description:

This 50-foot masted cruiser is a mixture of various images and plans on the net, with some original input of my own on the design. Everything but the engine room is true to life, including the rigging -- that's halyards, shrouds, sheets, and stays, not animation rigging. The anchor goes up; run X to negative values to raise it. The engine room is just two cubes where engine and transmission would go.

The cabin, main deck, and hull are in mirror mode, and the various levels and function groups are on different layers, to make interior scene shooting easy. I have made her modular; you could reduce her size (a lot) by deleting the lower deck group, for example, if you only want her for exterior views. Everything is properly named, and the whole craft is grouped and parented to an empty for easy manipulation. She has a taff rail for mounting fishing rod holders. I've only supplied brackets for stowing rods not in use.

Only the gauge face textures and the transom name plate are included; sources for the other textures are given below. Those areas are uv mapped.

The bridge chair started life as an office chair by dirato2000 #86864 (I modified the base). The clips on the tabernacle are originally royalty-free from Turbosquid, but have been modified by me.

Textures The faces of the assorted gauges are from all over the internet. The fabrics are from Dover publications. I think their textures are now available through iclipart.com.

Created in version 2.79.

She's christened Miss Limbo, but the transom name plate can easily be changed to your own preference and font. I created lots of hardware items, especially in the rigging; feel free to use bits of her in your own projects, as long as you give credit. Remember to add the credits listed below if you use her in her entirety! I hope you find her useful.

    asteril... I'm the creator of the EZread color blender theme...you sent me a nice comment in august 2017 regarding your appreciation of it... I just wanted to see if you think it has helped your further understanding of blender's functionalities as well as whether it has significantly helped your productitvity and reduced your fatigue while using blender....I will be updating the theme for 2.8 once they nail down the new interface specs. later this year...If you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know...

    Scruffybearx, your blender theme is my default! I'm an old lady (that's what they keep telling me), and your theme has helped me extend my productive/learning time. I'm not sure what will extend my understanding of Blender; maybe a brain transplant. I look forward to trying out the 2.8 version.

    Thanks for the compliment!
