I've just finished building the Litttle Moby. Plans are detailed but do not come with instructions or guide. You need to study up on the various techniques and order of construction. I did find the frame plans were a bit off. I measured them out with laser accuracy and some of the curves, particularly on the forward frames, were a little too "zig zaggy" to follow. However averaging out the points produced a fair hull. I replaced the the old school side helm with a side console. The plans show ( though the side views do not??) a huge engine well which I reduced in depth by about 5" to add extra room to the cockpit and the 40hp Merc still has plenty of room. So despite a couple of oddities in the plans the boar came out really nice.
