Thanks Charlie for sharing that svensons link. It looks like a lot of the same plans for free.

: Without even looking at the site it has all the earmarks of another
: attempt to bundle free plans from all over the web and sell
: them.

: This web site has about 150 free plans that came from out of
: copywrite DIY magazines from the '50s and '60s.
: http://www.svensons.com/boat/
: Svensons does sell CDs of their site as a convenience.

: This site sells similar old time plans but offers them as reprints
: in bound form.
: http://www.dngoodchild.com/front_pg_7-06.htm

: I just looked at the site and I recognize a lot of the plans as
: being available from the Svenson site which mostly come from the
: old "Science and Mechanics" magazine. Most of those
: boats are of the old plywood on frame style which worked well
: back then because the common lumberyard plywood of that era was
: much better than we get now. Of course he is offering about 350
: other plans and where they all come from is anybody's guess.
: One, the "Cheap Canoe" is a free but copywrited plan from
: Bateau.com.
: Having 500+ sets of plans sounds like a deal but you have to
: remember most builders never build more than 2 or 3 in a
: lifetime. And a lot of what you are getting are old time pieces
: that wouldn't be of much interest today.
