Comment posted Request for help from French yachtsman in tracing plans for Robertson yacht by James Roy.
I was suffering in the rain around Tower Hill, lunch time today, and decided to pop into Lloyds Register to have a look in the library, and get out of the wet.
Yes Taiseer V/Fair Judgment III was registered +100A1 at Lloyds, until the suvey due in May 1978 was missed.
Unfortunately that ends the goods news. Lloyds say that they don’t have a copy of the plans….they were very helpful.
Fair Judgement III was owned for a number of years by Peter Carter-Ruck, a well known lawyer of his day. Unfortunately he died in 2003, so that trail is cold.
The last registered owner in Lloyds was Pitcher & Scott, Civil Engineers. They were registered in Scotland but appear to have been dissolved.
End of trail, though I’ll ask my son, who works in the industry, whether he has any ideas.

- Received the following from Pierre Primot
“Here it is.
The available plans in the National Maritime Museum arrived at home.
They’ll be helpful during the restoration.
Thank you again for your help”

“It would appear that the unofficial C&N archivist is a chap called Jeremy Lines, though I believe from one contact that the drawings are in Greenwich. I am awaiting more info.
Or Google ; Jeremy Lines C&N archivist”
- If Taiseer V was built to Lloyds 100A1 (which is likely, but I don’t have my old copy of the Lloyds Register with me to check)(or even a lesser Lloyds Classification) then plans will have had to be submitted to Lloyds who would have overseen the construction.
It is very likely these plans are still held by Lloyds.
