Hello all, new here and assuming I have the right section here.  I am trying to find details (plans might be asking a lot) for the boat No. 153. It looks a lot like a Maynard built craft, although there is a rather fancier version of the same shape built by Brooke in 1915.
The photo I have shows it in Basrah, Irag, but has no further details about it. I would very much like to make a model of it in my normal 1/16th scale.

I do hope some of you knowledgeable chaps might help.

Many thanks,
Martin
