- Foster and all;
I have plans for the nesting dinghy "Two Bits" by Danny Greene, N.A.
LOA 9' 5" Beam 4' 2" 4" Draft Board up. It is stitch and glue built
from 1/4 " ply. There are plans included for a sailing version and outboard
mounting bracket.. I must have had these plans for almost 20 years.
Obviously not a boat that has become wildly popular over the years, but my
impression is that Greene is generally well thought of.
I would be happy to swap for old Boatbuilding magazines or books on boat
design, construction or camp cruising. Think I originally paid either $25 or
Best regards, Warren

Look at the FB11 on Bateau.com:
Looks like a nice little boat.
