The plans are excellent. I also bought Oughtred’s book on Plywood Clinker boat building, which is the Bible. And I bought the kit from Hewes and Co. in Blue Hill. I am laminating the stem and knees and should get the kit this week. Highly recommend for a first tome boat builder (but experienced woodworker.)
Everything went very well. Thank You
