Does anyone know if the plans for the YM 5 Tonner are still available?

I am sure I read a old boatbuilding hardback many years ago that gave a full build schedule and step by step guide on one. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Is it the Robert Clark Yachting World 5 tonner you are after? I don't recall a Ychting Monthly 5 Ton design - there is a 3 ton which the EOA have.

The YW boat is well recorded including articles in PBO and Classic Boat.

Re: Yaching WORLD 5 Tonner

There is also a long previous forum thread with some useful contacts. It comes up as the second link on Google. Easier for you to pick it up that way as I am crap at posting links!

You may also try and contact Stuart Welford who owns Joelle - his family have owned the boat almost from new and what he does not know about them is not worth knowing. Will pm his contact details.

You could try contacting the Maritime Museum at Greenwich as they have an amazing archive of Robert Clark drawings, which they will copy for a fee. They were very helpful with my research on Joliette.

Hmm I think that there must be some mistake, the site giveds the following info
a 5-Tonner gaff of LOA 24ft 5in (7.5m) with a LWL of 7ft 10in (2.2m) a draught of 4ft 4in (1.3m) anda BEAM of 3ft 6in (1.1m)

Yes, it's clearly an error. I believe the beam to be 7'10 (2.4m).

I believe the book you are thinking of is "Amateur Boat Building" by Michael Verney. But the boat is the smaller YM 3 tonner, an Alan Buchanan design.
