Sailboat Plans

Just curious and I'm guessing the answer is LOL NOPE LOL but I figured I'd ask anyhow.

Is there any sites out there with free plans for a bluewater capable cruiser? I really want to look at a set of plans just to get a better understanding on the structure (understanding that it varies from craft to craft). But, I don't want to pay the $500+ just to learn how they are built and never use the plans.

Are plans able to be resold? Is there a legit market for buying a set of plans and then just reselling them without actually building the boat?

Thanks,
projectfiji

Some Designers offer Study Plans....Benford Designs is one.

I have bought a few of them they are inexpensive.

There are books out there on boat design. It may be better to look at what makes a good boat than to just look at one style.
