Hi guys, I am sure you didn't forgett me (the one that doesn't know anything about anything). Well, I am the novice boatbuilder who wants to build a cruising boat of about 7 m in lenght, sloop or cutter, round hull wine glass shape, completely wooden, strip or carvell planked, fixed keel fore and aft, not too heavy (ballast max. 1400 lbs). Does anyone know where I can get that plan for free. Another question would be what is the best book for novice who doesn't know how to do it at all. I have just received Chapelle's ''Boatbuilding'' but I am not satysfied with it becouse it doesn't realy say how to do it as much as Bhueller's ''Backyard Boatbuilding''doesn't. They can be usefull, but for somebody else, not for me. Now I am waiting for the delivery of McIntosh's ''How to build a Wooden boat''.
