: Have any of you boat the package from http://www.myboatplans.com
: that includes 500 plans, boat design software, guides etc? I'm
: wondering if this offer is as good as it seems. Your comments
: are appreciated.

This kind of thing has been circulating in woodworking for some time, and according to the reviews I've read it's almost 100% scam, with plans and photos lifted from other places without copyright permissions or royalties paid.

Will you ever build 500 boats?

If all you want is to look at plans, Wooden Boat, and others I'm sure, have books of study plans, and Delftship design software is free. If I were going to spend money, I'd at least want the people who made the plans to get their cut for someone using their intellectual property.

If you want to actually build a boat, I'm guessing you'll have to get more detailed plans for any designs they have anyway.
