  1. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

  2. Hi there, I sent you $25 for study plans for a Conch 32 and haven’t heard anything so I thought I’d see if I could touch base and see it’s still happening 😊

    1. Hi Simon–I never got that order. Sometimes people use a 12 yr old email address that still turns up by mistake. Will email Study Plans as PDF file attachments.–Reuel

    2. Simon–Sent the Study Plans and your server rejected them. Your email address is no good. Please send a different one that accepts attachments! –Reuel

    3. Simon–The problem is gmail. Very bad. Never works.

  3. How much are plans for the 36′ Sampan? I don’t see it listed. Also, can the plans be scaled down? As designed, she’s bigger than our needs require; looking to build something in the 25′ range, with an 8 1/2′ beam.

    1. Go to plans prices under products and scroll down to the Sampan 36. Plans are $125.

  4. Is there any way I could see a sketch of the lines plan for a Commuter 24? I’m asking because I’m trying to see the angles of deadrise. I’m in the process of evaluating about half a dozen designs for whether I would consider building them. I live on a shallow creek off Chesapeake Bay and I’m looking to build a boat which would be able to handle our short chop without excessive pounding while making moderate speed (15-20 knots). I’ve decided on a max hull draft of 16″ to be able to get out and back into our creek much of the time. I’m also putting a lot of weight toward ease of building (i.e. relatively quick) and fuel economy. I’ll do mostly day trips, but with the occasional extended weekend cruise.

    Also, is the article ‘Building the Commuter 36 Magic–Three Booklets’ anything more than the photos viewable online at ?

    Thanks for your consideration,

    1. Sorry Jeremy, no designer reveals lines drawings without selling them. Very risky. She has deep deadrise forward, which gradually decreases until about halfway it becomes an arc bottom, whose radius increases to the transom where it is almost flat.

    2. The three MAGIC booklets have explanatory text in addition to the photos. Otherwise the same.

  5. Hi Reuel:
    When I saw your book, I had to have it; I also have two other books of yours.
    What I would like to know is if you have stock plans for a 20 ft. – 24 ft. sampan or shanty boat?

    1. Someday I hope to design more houseboats!
