These pages are written in Norwegian, but is fairly easy to understand for English speaking.

Here is a small dictionary for words you might not understand:

Hekk / en = Counter / the
Kutter = C
ounter stern (often plumb/straight stem)

Losbåt = Pilot boat
Redningsskøyte = Rescue boat
Lystbåt = Yacht
Sjekte = Small double ender, open or halfdecker
Skrog / et =

Please ask for any other words you need to have translated.

If you own or know of a Colin Archer that is not on my list, please let me know.

I have now also made a list  of all boats that Colin Archer built and the boats that he designed for other yards.
This list I believe is near complete. However, you will see that for most boats, fate are unknown. So if you have any information on a boat, please let me know.
