This info comes from an email I received this week from Duckworks Boat Builders Supply.
One of their customers downloaded a set of free plans for the Drifter 16 trimaran and then built the boat over a period of the 3 1/2 months. The boat looks great.

Here is small part of what, Mic D. (the builder) builder, wrote:
“During the summer my son, who lives right next to me, got his girls interested in sailing. First on a Sunfish, then on a Hobie Cat 16. They moved near us in Florida in the winter. When they got here they took sailing lessons on a Catalina 31. When I got back to Florida I felt the girls needed a boat they could sail here. I did some research and decided the drifter 16 would be right for them, and I was confident in my ability to build it. I was delighted when I discovered your free download, which turned out to be very well detailed. I built it in about 3 1/2 months and encountered no problems.”
