      Nope, sorry lah no boat designs available.. the ones that exist are quite jealously guarded too.

      In fact, plans are pretty useless for boatbuilders in Pulau Duyong, Terengganu, Malaysia.. they've always built boats by eye and feel, except for one guy: he can read & build according to plans, yours. He usually goes for more western/modern style boats as opposed to traditional Trengganu sailing crafts.

      Best is to come & see for yourself. There's a traditional phinis being built right now :)
