    as you know, I'm very interested in new designs etc... But still I don't know how it works in Class Mini...
    I know from my good friend Milan Koláček (Boat Follow Me - Class Mini proto) about options in proto series...
    But what about series boats? Is it possible to build by "my self" series boat? And who sell the plans?
    Also what are the conditions/parameters/limites for series boats?

    Thanks for your time :)

    I don't know much about Mini's but am pretty sure a minimum number of boats has to be built to qualify for the series class.

    Dudley Dix has plans for a plywood mini, I remember reading they have to race as prototypes since they are home built one offs.
