In truth, I have not contacted John Marples yet though I did browse his sight. I know from some personal experience that people who publish plans for almost anything of interest tend to get inundated with time-sucking queries by phone
, mail, even people showing up at their door so I generally try almost all other tacks before I ping a designer
. As my intended use is for a different boat, I don't need plans per se as much as I could use documentation
like construction photos and the like. I have a fair amount of experience in boat construction so none of this is a project-killer. Just like to do my homework first. Thanks for the response though.
