For a time Bernie Wolfard sold Whalewatcher plans via his Common Sense Designs Bolger plans marketing business.
Late in his time with that business he also offered a range of 23 large and small "complex" Bolger designs, Barn Owl, Bright Thread, Kotick, Crystal, Harbinger, Victoria, Wisp, Moccasin, Sybil's Yawl, Shivaree, etc, etc, and various PCB and other article reprints.
The criteria for selection to the Common Sense Complex Boats range was arrived at... "When I told Bolger of my plans to add a complex boats section to the Common Sense catalog he asked if I had anything like the Common Sense criteria to guide the selection as he has almost 600 designs from which to choose. I wrote him that I hadn't come up with any. Bolger suggested that we choose boats that he still liked after they were built and the owners were still friends with him. Sounded like a Common Sense criteria to me, so that is what we used to select the boats presented here. It goes without saying that each of these boats are worthy of study and contemplation as exemplary examples of the designers art. I hope you enjoy them as much as do (sic)" - Bernie Wolfard, Common Sense Design Book
