Considered a Norwegian Koster boat, Sjogin (pronounced So gin, accent on So) origins are unclear, and no building plans were available. Owner Russ Manheimer and friends took the links off Sjogin as several people were very interested in building this pretty boat. Word spread because of Russ's enticing blog "Hove-to Off Swan's Point" as well as frequent contributions on our WoodenBoat Forum. They approached Paul Gartside, and the results are a beautifully drawn set (12 sheets!) of plans. A lot of folks seem to feel this boat is "about right" and we expect to see more come to life. For more of her story, see WoodenBoat 247 (linked below). That's Sjogin and Russ on the cover.

I bought this STUDY PLAN just see what a study plan looks like. Two sheets, about what I expected. I spent over 25 years as a mechanical draftsman (the new term is CAD) designing machine type parts. Just wanted to see a sample of a boat drawing. Nice!
A beautiful and charming design with a construction methodology that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I wish to build this little charmer. Great lines, and I like the little stove onboard.
