    JFWIW the owner of Ezifold has discontinued the distribution of the Buc 24 plans. The pro bono work undertaken by JYD has finished.
    JYD will continue to distribute electronic email full size versions of the plans also the associated upgrade beam, mast rudder and daggerboard plans.
    Contact can be made through their FB site or direct email from the site. Paper printed plans have become un viable to print and post/courier.

    What size line should I use for lashing trampolines? Also what is the best type and size line to use for jib sheets? My buc should be launched in May! That is, if the state will get me my hull numbers by then!

    A little depends on how many grommets your tramp has, but on mine I use 1/8" dyneema- both the B- 24 and the B- 33, or 3/16" if dacron line. The dyneema works best since it doesn't stretch and squeak. I liked 3/8" for the jib sheets, it is about minimum to grip when the sail loads up. I used 5/16" on my spinnaker. Any good grade of low stretch line works fine on a 24. Put something on the main sheet that is easy to hold.

    Merry Christmas everyone.
    The link attached will take you to the Buc 24 scanned plans for download at full size plus materials list and build instructions. They were scanned by a professional plan print shop at full size by default however there is a scale box on each pdf file we added that you can check when printed out. NOTE the scale box on pdf BUC PLAN 4 should be 100mm x 100mm not 150mm x 150mm as on pdf (my error) other than that enjoy and build or dream away.

    Yeah, only 25 hours for me, but the shed roof consumed my boat bucks after the last hailstorm in Feb, or I wouldn't be posting about it, I'd be up there buying it!
