All Full Construction Plans and Study Plans are now available as electronic PDF files which can be sent to you as email attachments, for you to download.

If you want to receive PDF files rather than paper hard copies then mention this in the ‘additional notes’ section of the ordering process and make sure we have your email address – or send us a separate email (to with your requirements.

Most reasonably sized towns have a Copy Shop or Print Shop with an inkjet plan printer capable of taking PDF files and printing them out onto A1 or A0 paper. You can also print the files out at A4 size and zoom into the plan files within Adobe Acrobat reader. The advantage is of course, that you do not have to wait for the post - as soon as your order payment has been made, we can email you the plan files.

After a youth messing around in all sorts of boats on the Thames, I gained my degree - a BSc (Bachelor of Science) in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding from Newcastle University in 1974.

Straight after University l worked in the design office of McGruer & Co. Scotland for 4 years - famous for high performance racing /cruising yachts beautifully crafted in wood (cold moulded as well as conventional clinker and carvel). l then became Technical Manager at D.M. Russell Marine - formerly Jas. A. Silvers yard just up the road at Rosneath, for 5 years - famous for their motor yachts - this period found me sailing/cruising in all sorts of craft around the coast of the UK and regular racing in everything from Dragons to the IOR fleet on the Clyde.
