small wooden sloop design

would appreciate if anyone could point me toward a small ( <30ft) wooden homebuilt sloop design, along the lines of the Jamaican, Bermudan, or Caicos sloops. I am getting interested in building one as part of a larger program here in the BWI.

Have you considered the Caribbea?

Dudley Dix has a range of boats that may suit. His Caribbea design is in your size range.
If built using multi chine plywood construction would be fast, and give a nice boat.
He has quite a few tips for amateur boatbuilders on his web site.
