One real treasure in that collection of plans is Weston Farmer's "Dolly Varden" design; a really lovely little strip-planked outboard fishing boat. She's designed for strip planking in the old style, edge-nailed with steamed frames and no f*******ss anywhere. If I had finished insulating the garage and putting in a heater as planned, I'd be seriously considering getting a pile of cedar 1x6s and a set of bead-and-cove router bits - but alas, it was 11 degrees in the boatshop this morning.
