Our Study Plans are one to two page descriptions of designs we offer.

You'll get basic stats, building method, skill level, honest commentary, and especially helpful--profile and lines drawings so you can see the hull shapes. Also listed are the number of pages with that particular set of plans... that's not how many pages to the study plans.

No, you can't build boats or model boats from them, or pick-out numbers/dimensions. And, the study plans tell you about what you get when you order the actual plans. So, when the Shellback indicates 5 sheets, that's the number of pages in the actual plan set, not the study plans.

The study plans come from our wonderful print books Fifty Wooden Boats, Forty Wooden Boats, Thirty Wooden Boats, and Forty Five Wooden Boats.


We put together this short video which may help you understand the lines you'll see in the study plans:
