Do any of my Atalanta 26 shipmates have a photo of the builders plate fo their boat that i could see to have another made as there isn’t one in A115

Great to hear from you. This is the plate on A124 Helene. Sorry for poor quality, zoomed in on a much broader photograph.
The sail number is printed in the bottom right hand corner.
Does thinking about builder plates mean anything with respect to Mara’s restoration?

Here is a photo I took a couple of years ago of Hiran’s builder’s plate. You can just see A95 stamped on the lower right.

Just to say that serious moves are afoot to have a small number of replica Builder’s plates manufactured. Don’t know what the cost will be, but are you still interested?

We are definitely interested to have one made, Le Bateau Ivre, (ex Bluff, Ex Sherpa), sail number 146, hull number 161.
Best regards and hello from the Caribbean,
David and Michelle

Thanks to Nick, the pattern is with the engravers at the moment, but with no date for delivery. Will be in touch!

Hi please could you give me the exact Dimension as I know someone with a 3d printer which engraves
regards Simon West A5
- 26/05/2019 at 20:11 #18056
Don’t have the plaque to hand – away at the engravers. Will let you have the dimensions when I can.

3D Printer engraving sounds interesting!
The dimensions of the plate for A124 are:
112mm x 38mm
or, in Atalanta speak, 4.4″x1.5″

could you please send a clear photo of the script and the thickness of the plate thx

Nick I have given my man Mr Whippet the dimensions and a photo of the font he has made a dummy plate out of alloy and the results are very impressive . I will post a photo later..It can even be aged the brass so it looks the part..I know Mike has had 5x made.Not wishing to tread on anyones toes I will keep this one for A5.

Builders’ plaques update. I have taken delivery of a modest number (only 5) of replica plaques. They are not identical, but as they’ll never appear alongside the originals, a blind man on a galloping horse etc etc………….. They are not cheap, but then I didn’t expet them to be given their exclusivity. I’ll contact those who have said “Yes please” and see if they are still interested.

I would be interested in a plate if you one spare still?
- 26/06/2019 at 16:43 #18454
George – I’ve sent an email to you – no reply yet. Still interested?
