Re: Amherst Galley
- Didn't Martha Jane (pre-sponsons and ballast update) have only 250 sq.
ft. of sail on a 6 foot or 6'6" beam, and that produced capsize
problems? Now Amherst Galley is carrying 301 sq. ft. on a narrower
beam. How does this compare with the Jochems schooner, for instance,
or other boats in this size range? (Sorry -- I don't have any of the
books or drawings at hand).
In any case, she looks like a lot of fun.

- 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.

Hi, Just wondering if plans are available for the Amherst Galley, or the Jochems Schooner. Kev
