      Thanks for your interest.

      The work was done in 2004, then covered in MAIB Sept. 1, 2004 Vol. 22, No 8 p.28-29.  We referred to it as 'MICRO-2'. 
      To the plans for Design #422 MICRO across three additional sheets were added modifications doable on any existing MICRO hull:
      - shorter mainmast - 18'4" versus 23' -
      - battened gaff main-sail for an overall sail-area of 210 versus 176, plus 65 sq. foot reaching spinnaker
      - all set in a bow-tabernacle, bringing her hull-length to just over 16 feet,
      - gaff mizzen on 2-foot shorter mizzen-mast 
      - moderate-angle fillets under her bow.
      As stated in the MAIB piece in 2004, these three upgrade sheets are $75.
      The complete plans-package has grown over the decades from 6 to 11 sheets and is available for $250 to build one boat.

      Yes, first I've heard of it, as well. Perhaps it's on the navigator plans . . . I haven't really studied them.
      Anyway, they sound like a worthy addition. If I still had the Micro I built, I'd likely want them.
