Biloxi Dinghy Sailboat Easy to build, small starter sailboat.

Cat’s Paw  Another 12 ft sailboat that is easy to build with straight side hulls.   Very forgiving.  Ideal boat to learn or practice sailing in because she will forgive so many mistakes.

Crescent 15 and 1/2 ft sailboat for day sailing on a small lake, river, or protected waters of a bay.  Of course, day sailing doesn’t mean you can’t go for a moon light cruise.  This boat is not equipped with a cabin, galley and bunks for overnight cruising.

Star-Lite sporting an overall length of 27 feet 6 inches accommodates four people in 6 foot 4 inch bunks with enough space for a private head and a working galley.  You can live on this boat.  The Star-Lite is a proven design, improved slightly from the first ship built- the Tabu.  You can build it, but it will take some work!

Tabu combines new materials with improved techniques of water dynamics, this sports sailor brings about a new concept of high in the –water speed sailing.  It rides over the surface instead of forcing its way through it.  Length is 18 feet with a 5 foot 8 inch beam, 2 people with a hull weight of 175 pounds.

Tern is a flying sailor.  Nature foots the power bill when the boat you build carries 72 square foot of sail.  It is remarkably stable, and packs as many as four persons aboard.

Here are some comments and pics a customer sent us of a boat he built.  Click on each pic for a full size version:

The boat plan I used to build my boat was the 14' Playboy Runabout. I have pics from start to finish of the project and i'm very proud of it. I customized the plans a little to suit my needs better. I built her to drive with remote controls not from the motor, and I closed in the sides and put a storage compartment on both sides. I put a bench seat accross the back with storage underneath instead of a seat down both sides and I closed in the rear of the boat for extra storage (gas tank, battery box, tools, etc). I also fiberglassed the outside and painted it. I think the plans were great and easy to follow for the first time builder.

Have some fun in the sun!

The Thing Unconventional looking boat.  Hard to describe.  Here are actual customer pics from a customer who built one along with his story:

In 1959 I purchased an original home built “Thing” and ran it for several years on the Willamette River. Years later it got rotten and subsequently discarded. Now the Son of the man who originally built it from the magazine plans in his wood shop in Milwaukie, Oregon works with me and he helped his Dad build it in 1958. We decided to search for the plans and if we found them; I (an engineer) would upgrade it for two adults and build it. I bought your disk and building started last May 25 and it was ready to launch July 20th. You are welcome to use the photos and my “title” as a former white water guild; River Rat Bob from Oregon. Hope you enjoy the pictures attached. I am 60 years old but still chasing the dream as you see from my smile in the boat.

Budget Houseboat    Budget Houseboat is like a camper that goes on the water. Its 20 feet long with a 9 foot beam, containing 300 sq. ft. of usable floor area. This means that while she can accommodate two in outrageous comfort, she can easily take a family of four on an extended vacation and be entirely self contained. There are two full size permanent bunks in the forward section of the cabin. The dining table in the rear section of the cabin, seats four and then drops down to convert into an extra bunk. Cabin headroom is 6 feet and 2 inches and two cots can be stationed to the rear of the cabin area. 

Float a Home  A luxurious 21 footer that is very stable, relatively easy to build and with an interior arrangement which can be varied to suit your needs.  It has a 7 foot 3 inch beam and the houseboat can be powered with up to a 120 hp motor.  An extremely simple houseboat to build, it features a strong hull with a heavy keel and close-spaced framing.  The craft is very stable also because of its low profile.

The hull is light enough to be transported anywhere by trailer and the boat is of a size to be easily handled.

Flight The Flight is a speedy outboard runabout cruiser whose construction is brought within the scope of the amateur builder by the simple application of marine plywood planking. The benefit of plywood make this cruiser sturdy and useful for rugged cruising, fishing, inland commuting or as a workboat. 19 1/2' long, 5' 6" Beam

HaPenny A small V-bottom express cruiser that will really get up and go.  Full bill of materials list provided and more.

Sea Angler The Sea Angler is a 20 foot cruiser of the deep V hull type that has gained so much popularity in recent years because of its ability to provide a high turn of speed with minimum pounding in rough seas.  At that time use of longitudinal steps, or lift rails, was not understood and the engines lacked the power needed for this type of hull.

Sea Babe Cruising comfort plus runabout speed are packing into 15 feet Sea Babe. For extended cruising along river and lake routes, winding through the many picturesque canal routes, or for short weekend hops that require frequent launching and beaching, you'll find Sea Babe easy to handle and economical to run.

Sportsman    18 ft Cruiser that has a unique combination of runabout and cruiser features, but is well adapted for day cruising or short trips anywhere. Its closest approach in a similar craft ashore is the house trailer, but unlike the mode of travel, Sportsman is a self contained, seaworthy, open water crafter for weekend cruises or fishing trips that will accommodate a partner.

Sunfish The Sun Fish is an unconventional looking cruiser which weighs only 375 pounds and is powered by an outboard. It can be transported by trailer easily and has accommodations for two persons for overnight trips.

Dragonfly  The Dragonfly is a 10 ft hydroplane that is adapted to all classes of outboard motors from 4 hp row boat to motor to the largest racing engines. Streamlined in design, the constructional features are unique and present such developments as extended motor wells fro quick planning action and a combination of V and convex bottom for safe and super-efficient high speed operation with low and high powered outboard motors.

EL CTD Is a sport boat that you can build in days for very little money. It will provide you hours of safe fun for youngsters of all ages. El CTDis a mini inboard hydro that's powered with a 4 hp air cooled engine. It's top speed is about 16 mph with a 100 lb. teenager aboard. It features a "dead man's" throttle that shuts the motor off when the driver lets go of the throttle, so there's no danger if the operator falls off the boat.

Flyer  Absolute maximum speed is the cry of many race drivers. For a race they want a boat that will go fast. Sufficiently fast to win and if it will win then the other features do not matter. The 135-Class Flyer is designed to give maximum speed under normal competitive conditions. Factors of design giving straight away speed, turning ability and ability to ride rough water have been so proportioned that in an actual race a high peak of speed is reached.

Thank you for the great plans.  Unbelievable amount of information for the money.  I can't wait to get started. -Jeff D., New Mexico.

I built the doghouse using the plans I purchased from you a week ago, and it was great.  Easy to read and follow, it was a great purchase.  The kids helped, and the dog just loves it.  Thank you so much. It'll take years to go through all the stuff I want to build on your CD.  Andrew H., Colorado.

The jungle gym for the kids is amazing.  We bought the plans 2 weeks ago, and built the whole thing last weekend. We are so impressed with the amount of information shown.  It is a virtual encyclopedia of plans.  Thanks.  Josh L., New Mexico.

My God!!  That's more boats than I can build in a lifetime!  Unbelievable! The best I have ever seen.  Thank you! Craig J., South Carolina.

I've seen plenty of plans on boats.  This is the best all around package of information I've come across.  Jake M., Florida.

This has saved me so much time.  I've spent weeks looking for stuff like this.  Well worth the few bucks to get this CD.  Jimmy K., Arkansas.

I bought a CD a few weeks ago that had a bunch of links and junk on it that was ripped off from websites and other useless information.  I thought long and hard before trying again and buying from you. I can actually use this stuff.  I'm so glad I did.  A.K., Arizona.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why should I buy from you?  There are lots of places to buy similar stuff on ebay.  What makes you so special?

What separates us from the rest is that we want you to be happy.  If you're happy, you'll buy from us again and tell your friends.  Getting one sale from you is great, but we want the next sale from you and the next one after that.  It isn't worth a few bucks to us to have one unhappy customer.  If you are unhappy, tell us and let us try to fix the problem.  How many sellers will say that?

Yeah, so, there are lots of other sellers on ebay.  Are you saying the rest of them will rip me off?

No, of course not.  But, beware of what people sell on ebay.  Many sellers on here will charge you an exorbitant amount for shipping.  Many will "claim" to provide discount shipping only when you contact them, they'll tell you they'll take a quarter off the shipping price for each additional item.  We never do that.  Our shipping policy is very straight forward.  All of our items ship free to the USA, simple as that, so there's nothing for you to worry about regarding combined shipping!  You'll see that we not only offer more content per package then our competition, but also at the cheapest price too.

I want to see a sample before I commit to buying.  Please send me a free sample.

We are sorry that our description, as well as our strong ebay reputation, does not provide you with a strong enough comfort level to purchase from us.  With that said, we do not provide "free samples". 

What if my disk arrives damaged?

We offer a no muss, no fuss guarantee that all damaged disks are replaced free of charge.


All discs are mailed out within 1-2 business days guaranteed!!!


Have you bought plans on CD's on ebay before only to be disappointed? Did you buy a CD only to find a bunch of useless links on it?  Did you buy a disc and when it arrives it doesn't work and you can't contact the seller?

Well, with us, your satisfaction is GUARANTEED!

All of our discs are tested before shipping to ensure customer satisfaction.  In VERY RARE cases does a disc get damaged and rendered unreadable in shipment.  If our disc shows up and it won't read on your DVD or CD Drive, let us know, an we'll replace it.  If you are unsatisfied in any way, let us know, we want you to be happy.

In some cases, customers bought DVD ROM discs and tried to play them on their CD ROM.  In those cases, it is not our responsibility for your hardware compatibility issues.  ALL of our DVD's are clearly marked as DVD's in the auction listing.

Official PayPal Seal

Shipping and Payment information

Pay through PayPal using:

Official PayPal Seal

We accept PayPal as our only form of payment.  We do not accept any other form of payment. 

All items will be shipped within 1 business day to your PayPal address. We will only ship to your PayPal verified address.

All items are shipped by USPS first class mail.  In an effort to keep our costs down, that are passed along as low prices to you, all of our disks are packaged and shipped in economic sleeves and mailers.   All of our disks are labeled with a clean text only label.  The disks are made this way for speed and cost, which translates into lower cost for you.  The disk labels do not contain fancy artwork.  We focus our efforts on the quality of the material on the disk.  We do not believe in charging you an extra 3 or 4 dollars like some companies out there just to throw in a 25 cent plastic case and slap a color label on an item.

:  Most times, your package will arrive in about 5 days after we ship them depending on where you are at.  However, lately the Post Office it seems has not been very cooperative with us and we've had a couple of customers wait a few days longer than that.  Please understand that we cannot control the Post Office, so we can't guarantee a delivery time.  If the item does not arrive by the last promised ship date in ebay, please email us and let us know, and we will make it right.  The only unhappy customers we have are those that don't bother to contact us and don't give us a chance to fix the problem for them.

:  Same deal above,  except your packages typically have been taking about 2 weeks or so after we ship them.  We've noticed that maybe 20% of overseas customers have been waiting as long as 4+ weeks for these shipments.  The only explanation we can come up with is that it must be stuck in some container in some dock waiting on customs clearance.  It happens, and for those 20% of customers, we apologize, but there is very little we can do about that.  Your disk will arrive or we will replace it.

Multiple items purchased by the same customer may or may not be shipped in the same package, at our discretion.  We do not offer any additional discounts on multiple items other than the ones noted above.

Every effort has been made to accurately describe the contents of this collection.  On very very rare occasions, typographical errors may occur and we may make an innocent mistake.  These items are described to the very best of our abilities, and in as much detail as possible.

Feedback Policy:

Please offer us a chance to fix any problems before leaving us negative feedback for any reason by emailing us first with your problem.  The only thing we ask from our customers is that if they have a problem, that they give us a chance to fix the problem for them before they leave bad feedback.  If negative feedback is left without any prior communication, we will assume you are no longer interested in communicating and working things out.


WE VALUE your positive feedback and will work hard to earn it from you.  We do not require any customers to leave us positive feedback, we do not consider it to be a purchase requirement.  We consider a customer leaving us feedback, and feedback in general, to be a favor of goodwill.  Our feedback is automated through auctiva and works in the following way to ensure each customer who leaves us feedback, gets the favor returned:


1.  When your package arrives in satisfactory condition, we ask you to leave positive feedback so that we may close out the transaction.

2.  An auto-notification is sent to auctiva after your positive feedback is received that the transaction is closed, and the system auto replies with a positive feedback.

3.  If you leave us positive feedback, you should get a positive feedback in return within a short time, sometimes a day or two at most.  If you leave a negative feedback, that situation is left for us to individually review.   Again, we ask that you contact us first if you are contemplating negative feedback and inform us of the problem.

4.  We do not leave feedback first.  If you want positive feedback, please leave it for us and the favor is returned 100% of the time.  If you do not leave us feedback, you will not get feedback from us.

5.  Since all of our products are set to immediate payment required, we can not evaluate a buyer's payment time.  The only thing we can evaluate is how easy a buyer is to work with after the sale.  In order for us to do that, the transaction must be closed.  For this reason, we require a buyer close the transaction first by leaving feedback so that we know we have successfully completed the deal.


We have developed this policy to ensure that we do not spend time leaving feedback for folks who do not bother to return the favor for us, as we have in the past.  If for some reason you are not satisfied with this feedback policy, please refrain from purchasing.  By purchasing our product, you acknowledge that you have read and accepted all of our policies.


We verify all disks prior to shipment to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.


If you have any questions prior to bidding, please use contact the seller above and let us know.  Thank you!!!!!!
