HI Bruce, I ordered a set of boat plans for my best friend for Christmas, here it is 1month later & we are going to start putting the bottom on her today. The planing hull design is excellent. She's a weekend project because both of us have full time jobs. We can't wait to christen her "Keel Estate". Some pictures & updates are soon to follow....Regards John Dunn

HI Bruce, I recently received my boat plans and patterns for the coastworker 25', 8' planning hull Steel / Aluminium. I must say I am more than happy. One thing I am curious about getting though is the patterns on a cad file, I have just noticed this information on the your web site and was hoping you could send me some information on the cost and the style of format e.g. dwg,dxf etc.. thanks once again      Brett Muller

ANSWER: We can supply AutoCAD files for any parts of the boat plans and patterns ... they are in DWG format.
