What you get:
First of all, you get personal support: Though most questions are covered in the
building guides, I am always happy to answer questions at any time during your build.
 
Plans - Boat plans include a comprehensive, well illustrated building guide,
material and tool requirements and full sized patterns for mostevery part. The
construction guide includes complete instructions for building the frame, skinning the hull
and coating the fabric - as well as sources for fabric and hardware. We want you
succeed, and the plans reflect that.
 
NEW!  Digital Plans, delivered via email after purchase, are now available for some of our
designs. Digital plans are $5 to $10USD less than paper plans, there is no shipping charge, and
they arrive right away.

Paper plans patterns are traced from templates onto heavy recycled paper. And, we are moving to
printed patterns, and have them for a growing numberof designs. Patterns are full sized, and
include a template for most all the plywood parts - frames, stems, transoms, knees skegs, etc.
Just glue to a sheet of plywood and saw along the lines - no lofting required!

Here is a pic of what you might get - these patterns, while simple and effective,
are being phased out by professionally printed templates.
   
                            Full sized patterns

Frame Kits - Frame kits include the building guide, pre-cut frames, transoms, knees, etc,
and all the fabric needed to skin your boat. Due to shipping costs and difficulties kits do not include the longitudinal
stringers (Gunwales, chines, keel, et al.), or spars, nor epoxy or fasteners. Sailboat kits do include wood for the foils,
but do not include sails.
 
Note:  We use only BS1088 Okoume marine plywood in our kits - the best, by far.

     
 
     Ordering         

Ordering plans is easy: Use Paypal  by clicking a button below  - no account with them is necessary, and you can pay with credit, debit or check.

Note: I am trying to update the ordering - but, for now, if you prefer digital plans, place your order, then send me a note. I will send the plans, and refund the difference in cost.  Hopefully I will get this fixed soon!

Digital plans are currently available for the Annabelle Skiff, Chuckanut 15, Disko Bay, Aloha, Wee Lassie, Ruth and the Shenandoah Whitehall. See note, above.

A plan or kit licenses the purchaser to build a single boat, for non-commercial purposes only. The fee to build a second boat from the same set of plans is half the original price. If you order plans, but later want a kit instead, we will deduct the cost of plans from the kit price.
