Miscellaneous Fishermen Collection

The miscellaneous fishermen collection contains plans for boats of any period or nationality, propelled by any method, and used for the primary purpose of commercial fishing. It does not include recreational boats used for sport fishing. The collection represents the work of a wide variety of designers and builders, some of whom are still in business. Most of the plans are copies, rather than originals, and many of the designs do not have complete construction plans.
