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, on the WoodenBoat Forum and two sites under the "Building Projects" section of our RESOURCES page. You'll find true inspiration there.
“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.
