You probably won't, because the rebuild didn't require blueprints of the entire ship, but just the cargo holds. I would be surprised to find any blueprints of her as a cement carrier, and if they exist, finding them would be a lot of work. My advice to you- build the vessel with the 1904 cargo ship blueprints and then try to make alterations. Or, if you are really feeling ambitious, you could try to hunt down the conversion blueprints. Hope this helps, Andrew

does anyone out there happen to have any newer plans from the JB Ford, or any of her previous names, EC Collins, Edwin F. Holmes? I cant seem to locate any plans of her in her current cement handling configuration, I can locate original plans, but nothing of the last 60 years. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. -Steve
