    Default Friendship sloop plans

    My favorite Friendship sloop design is "Acadia" by Ralph Stanley. I contacted his office but was told he does not sell his plans. Does anyone know of any similar Friendship plans (i.e. approx. 28' LOA, triple headed rig, large cockpit) which are available?

    Frank Stanley? Would that be Ralph's brother?

    Might check with Mystic.

    Mystic is a fine idea. And I know there are drawings and offsets in at least one of the Howard Chapelle books.

    Our host has this nice little 25 footer

    I really like the host's plan for the Frienship Sloop. Reuel Parker lists a Frienship Sloop that I'd bet looks just like Estrella. I want one.
