Pat's web site says she is not available for up to two weeks at a time,
have you given her at least this much time to contact you?
Note that the last few times she emailed me she was using an email
address that makes her messages look like SPAM to my google email
filter. I told her about this and suggested getting a new email
address but I never heard from her again.
If you can't get Ninigret plans or if you don't want to wait until you
can, here's a place where you can get plans for "Nina", a very similar
boat that might be better engineered for today's typical small boat
I haven't studied these boats in that much depth but I've been
interested in both, and so far I haven't been able to identify any
particular features that might make one any better than the other.
Here's what bateau.com has to say about Nina:
"While our fiberglass/plywood composite material is 100% original, there
isn't anything new in the hull lines. It is a proven type with very
predictable behavior. For the looks and layout, we took ideas from
several classic designs: the cuddy cabin is inspired by the Atkins
design Ninigret, the open version windshield comes from Bolger's
Halloween, the engine cover from the Handy Billy that was featured in
Wooden Boats. We mixed it all with a touch of Culler's influence and it
became the Nina."
Maybe Nina is worth a closer look, here's two more links:
