Skill level: Intermediate
Plans include 10 sheets, plus 2 pages of additional notes from the designer.

Please note: this plan is considered an intermediate skill level. It may be that advanced skills are helpful. Although we've offered these plans since the 1990s, it has recently been brought to our attention there are some discrepancies in some measurements. Most builders have worked around that.

We've decided to continue to offer the plans because many beautiful boats have been built and sailed. If you choose this design there is a wealth of knowledge about it online in various blogs and in the sites under the "Building Projects" section of our RESOURCES page. You'll find true inspiration there.
