Ferry Blueprints

My Father had some old drawings for some ferries, he asked me to copy some of them for someone - I offered to scan in all of the drawings so they were recorded electronically, these are original film and linen copies, some with penned modifications.
The ships they cover are:-
The Duke of Lancaster
The Lord Warden
MV Speedlink Vanguard
'Ship 1717'
TSS Avalon
and TSS Holyhead & TSS Dover - these last two I had problems with the files so have not been processed yet, maybe a re-scan.
I have original .Tif format scans, cleaned scans and pdf files of the cleaned versions. If anyone wants specific copies please email me.
the ship 1717 drawings were wider than my scanner so each drawing was scanned twice, to catch the top and bottom edges.

If that ship "1717" refers to the H&W build number then she is the St David.
Oul hand
If you are so bloody clever why didn't you fix it then
