Plans are right and accurate except they are small and lot of labor to enlarge main parts (like FRAMES, RUDDER, STEM, CENTERBOARD PLATE) to full size, that's the only inconvenient, but that's ok once you understand the idea.
As you can read about the location where I live, there are not many months during a year I can work outside, so I go ''on the double'' and do as much as I can when wheather permits.
I already have the sails, portlights (all used but good) I will be able to finish building DECK, COCKPIT, CABIN, BUNKS and SEATS this year (Glassing in spring 2014 only). As I said I really love these old boats and hope to add a few more of them to the population. Hi sailing canoe fan would it not be possible to rise the coach roof height by say 6" which would give you more bedroom? My local wood supplier (a hard wood floor manufacturer) selling various type of wood is close for 2 weeks (Summer Vacations).
It's because I was lucky last April to purchase 2 locking portlights (opeable) $50.00 each, the cut holes visible on each sides are the reason.
1 - In original plan (OP), the centerboard trunk goes outside the cabin (I found this was ugly). 3- I want to (sometime) sleep in the boat (for a 10 days cruise, or so), cabin is now managed for that. 4- Beside hull plan specifications, there are some possible modifications that make a craft ''better''.


5- I also found side decks in OP too wide for nothing, I think 8 inches is ok, for this sailboat.
6- I will make 2 portholes (fix) next winter, same size and same look as actual portlights. Some questions originated from The Marine do-it-yourself website wherein I answer inquiries.

Designers Bruce and Willard Crandall were unknown to me at that time, and their name is not written on plans and booklet. I starded construction last year and still enthousiastic about building the boat, however I'm looking forward next year to finish this baby and go sail it. Amazing boats are now built by people with very little to a wide experience in boat building.


I know only one person so far who has built the same model, (surely there are more), and it's a very nice model. I found their name because a Wooden Boat Forum member e-mailed me his souvenirs when he was young and read in 1941 Popular Mechanic magazine (March to July) plans and directions to built this boat, named ''Whitecap''. Last year I starded from ''nothing'' and stop in september after glassing both sides and bottom.
Over the years I have saved as many these old plans as I can but I don't have a copy of your boat.
If I'm lucky again to get good used ones will be ok, otherwise I will make 2 custom portholes (fix - not openable), similar size to existing units.
Looks like a sleeker Bonnie on the Polysail web site with a lower profile, which is a nice look.
