Wharram Builders and Friends

I rediscovered a set of plans for a 27'6" Tane......

That I had put in a briefcase some 35 yrs ago. They are in pretty good shape with the usual stains and such one might expect of paper plans of this age. They are plenty clear enough to be useful and have the builder instructions as well as some other informational notes and even a brochure showing various other cats.
I was showing a Bolger Bobcat I build at the Port Aransas Plywood Boat Festival last month and a friend told me there might be some interest in plans like these. If anyone IS interested please email or call me for more details and description. Make me a offer I can't refuse and I'll send them off to a new life. Thanks, Martin.

I have a Tane project boat and would love to have the original plans or even digital copies.  Mostly just as a curiosity, to see how it all went together, as I'm customizing mine into a sail-powered commercial fishing vessel.  I don't have a clue what they might be worth and what to offer.

Hey Shawn. I don't have the slightest idea about their worth either. I've been told some fabulous stories about some sets of plans selling for large amounts of money to people who collect such things. I've never trusted people who collect things just to have them. I would love $200. If you think I'm crazy let me know. If you think I'm selling the Mona Lisa to cheap let me know what you think I should ask. I'll pack them very carefully. Shipping to Hawaii ? Who knows. Let me know what you think. Martin.

Not totally unreasonable, but more than I can do right now on my budget.  I'll keep it in mind and get back to you.  Thanks!

They are sitting here doing nothing. Make me an offer I can't refuse and I'll send them along. I've had them for a very long time and I haven't done anything with them. Think about it. I'd hate for them to go to waste and since yours is the only interest shown I'll be very easy to get along with. M

Martin, I'm interested, do you still have those Tane plans available? PayPal, International money Order...? Say US150 including S&H to Australia?  Regards Graeme

Edit - This pic has been on my desktop for a while:

That's my boat!  Moku'ola in Hilo Harbor.  Graeme- if you buy the plans, I'd be interested in full size copies.  I'm just too broke to buy them right now...

Hey Graeme, Done. PayPal works for me and is probably the least trouble. Email me your address at mtidswell at yahoo dot com. I'm cantxsailor on PayPal.

Hi Martin, Done! Your PayPal handle drew a blank in PayPal, so I just used your Yahoo addy to send the USD150. I'll email you my shipping address now although it should show up in PayPal's email to you with the funds.. my addy is graemes4-boatstuff at yahoo dot com dot au

Hi Shawn, probably, or a decent photo. I've  sent you a message. g
