Bolger Tortoise 'Off-Sets' ?

Many years ago I built Bolger Tortoise
Sadly, I lost it when I got navigationally challenged and into a tide race: a wave jumped on board and took my Tortoise away.

Now *many* years later , I have bought a 32' sail boat ; but that boat has no dinghy

I'm wanting to build a "Tortoise"
but the plans are at home in NZ and I am here in Australia

I wondered if anybody has access to the plans/ offsets of the Philip Bolger "Tortoise"

Where are you?
I have an older elegant punt which was widened by 6" you can have if you want, its on middle harbour in sydney.
Needs a bit of work, but it is useful.

The plans for Tortoise are available here:

Tortoise

$30 isn't much to pay for the real deal.

I hope you won't think it rude of me to enquire whether New Zealand and Australia have developed Postal Systems?

Congratulations on the new boat.

Gord, I've several clients in Australia and one in New Zealand. They all report reliable package carries, though times from the US with "regular mail" can seem lengthy, the specialty carries (UPS, Fed-Ex, etc.) are excellent.
