A salty collection of complete building plans for six small cruising boats, including a fantail steam launch (17' or 25'), working tugboat (14' or 20'), supply boat (20'), cruiser (14' or 20'), long-distance-sailing cruiser (14'), or fantail catboat (20'). Among the most popular designs offered by Benford, special effort has been made to reproduce the plans to scale, so that the builder will be able to work easily from the prints in the book.


"All of the plans exhibit the professional presentation and well-conceived accommodations typical of the author's work. WoodenBoat Magazine Benford's boats all seem to have some sort of magical quality, a unique character all their own that defies definition."  —Danny Greene, Cruising Sailboat Kinetics
