      Hello John,

          thanks for your sensitivities on this. 
      Plans are indeed available on four 17"x22" sheets at $75.- to build one boat.

      Susanne,

      Totally different subject.

      In 1970, I purchased a portfolio of plans from Phil entitled "Very Small
      Boats". The Portfolio was the basis for Small Boats. Included in both is
      design #234 'Fieldmouse' .

      Time passes (improbably, 40 years). I attended Woodenboat Schools class on
      glued lapstrake plywood boatbuilding in June and two weeks later, had knee
      replacement surgery. As I recover (a slow and unpleasant process), I thought
      I would entertain myself by building a Fieldmouse as a small scale exercise
      in glued lapstrake plywood.

      The numbers on the "Very Small Boats" plans are big enough for my old eyes
      and I suspect I could argue that purchase of the portfolio provides the
      right to build a boat. However, a man who thinks that right and wrong are
      defined by what is legal is not a useful member of society. If large scale
      plans are available, I would like to buy a set.

      Are plans for #234, 'Fieldmouse' available? If so, let me know how much and
      I'll get a check in the mail to you.

      Best wishes,
      JohnT
