I have been looking, although somewhat off and on, for a book containing sketches/drawings/plans for MG's designs. I have found nothing. Is it because there are none?

MG was a prolific writer, and produced quite a few books, some of which contained a few of his own designs and a lot of others. As he was editor of Yachting Monthly for 40 years, a lot of his designs where published there.
A brief bibliography:
Little Ships and Shoal Waters
Yachting on a Small Income
The Magic of the Swatchways
Ten Small yachts and Others
The Arrow Book of Sailing
Swatchways and Little Ships
The First of the Tide

Try these folks for information/plans.
eventides.org-designs page (http://www.eventides.org/Boat%20Designs.htm)
Thanks - still looking for more though.
I have a copy of Swatchways & Little Ships, which is great, but hasn't any plans - just a few photos and drawings. Specifically, I would like to find plans/drawings for "TINKA" or "SIXPENCE" if I can.

"Sixpence" is in "Dream Ships", which can be had from the indefatigable DN Goodchild
Can't help you with Tinka. It's not in "Little Ships and Shoal Waters". I'm sure someone else can help you narrow it down.
