    "Searcher" was a Graham Goodchild design offered as a free plan in "Model Boats" in December 1981. Here is my version of "Searcher", many years in the building, still not complete, but getting there. Access to the hull on the original design was via a hatch above the cockpit - I had no faith in my ability to make it water tight so went for  removable grp. hatches.
    I have forgotten what shade of yellow I used for the hull and can't find a match!

    Members of a similar vintage to me and readers of the best comic strip ever might recognise, in the name, the homage I have paid to that publication.

    "members of a similar vintage to me and readers of the best comic strip ever "

    A wild guess - Tin Tin?

    A very nice model and I will even forgive you the flat hatches! (Not too large and with not too many bolts.)
