I like the plans. The 7 pages of plans and 3 pages of build instructions are adequate provided you possess enough boat building knowledge to find the discrepancies. Some of the hand-written numbers on the plans are difficult to read. The build instructions are fairly basic so you get to work out many of the details yourself, hence the joy of boat building! Recommend that before you begin, you take enough time to study the plans in order to discover the few discrepancies, as the description implies. The intermediate skill level that is required seems fairly accurate.
