I just bought those plans from HH Payson who is an authorized dealer for Bolger plans.He ships them really fast and if you have any questions you can always call him.Here is his website http://www.instantboats.com/pricetxt.html

He also has the best price on them.

The plans have no building instructions but it looks really easy.It calls for 1/4 inch ply on the sides and 1/2 ply for the three frames.You simply nail the sides to the stem,transom,three frames and epoxy all the seams.I cant wait to build my boat.I sent you an email with a photo of one in case you have not seen one completed.They are really nice looking boats.
