fast enough and cheap enough to build that I would feel I'd thrown my
money away by using the cheapest materials and quickest methods
available � little camper for next Summer on Gardner's Bay.
However, since our trip to CBI, I've seen the potential for a well-made
Amherst Galley to make our next trip up there truly spectacular. A
cheaply build one would be fun too, just not as much.

- Sorry about this delay, Kev. A whole lot of good reasons for this... Your inquiry ended up in the wrong hopper.
Thanks for your interest.
Yes both plans are available. 'Jochems' has been built a number of times. 'Amherst Galley' not yet, surprisingly, as she reflects a range of increasingly relevant issues between human-power, safety under sail, speed, light weight, etc.
Plans to build one boat, sent rolled in a tube, are:- #639 "William D. Jochems" on 5 sheets of 22"x34" = $300.-
- #643 "Amherst Galley" on 7 sheets of 22"x34" = $325.-
I hope that this still helps in your choice.
