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.

If ordering Digital plan sets: These files are in PDF format.  Some designs will have just a single page needed to be printed on large paper... typically if they had full-sized mold patterns. Other pages could be printed on letter or tabloid size paper, if you want to save printing costs. You'll see a measurement on pages that have full-sized drawings, so your local print shop will just need to print to that size.

And, if you are ordering the Digital plans, you can also order the How-to book as a PDF (see below). 


“Your downloads are ready” will be the subject line of an email you’ll receive from us—once we’ve processed your digital order. That email has the link to click, so you can then download the file.

This isn't an "instant" process, so if we're asleep, you may need to wait for regular business hours for us to process the order. Although we are quite timely, we may not be processing on weekends & holidays.
