Referring to your 2011 article “Builder’s simple boat serves up special times,” written by Ben Woodworth: I was pleased to find some words about a little dory that I have owned for the past 16 years.

For the past decade I have attempted to trace the source of a set of plans for this boat, believing it to be a Skene’s Dory. I have since learned that it was, in fact, designed by one Francis S. Kinney.

If any of your readers have an idea of where I might obtain these drawings, I would be most grateful.
