    The Easy catamarans website seems to have closed down. Does anybody know if Pete and Anne Snell have shut up shop? Will someone else continue selling the plans?

    I'm surprised there has been no response to this. I'd be interested to know myself. Aussie bretheren??

    Roger Simpson retired from designing cats to make beautiful banjos and mandolins, with his wife doing incredible artistic inlay finishes.

    Bob Oram retired, and then fortunately changed his mind.

    The Easy's are such a proven and popular design concept, it would be great if the plans continued to be available, with the understanding that personal support from the Snells is not part of the deal. (There is a huge amount of online info from many Easy builders, so this is not a problem.) If someone like Boatcraft Pacific dealt with sales, they'd still have income from their work without any demands on their time.

    After asking around it looks like plans are still available and Anne and Peter are still contactable through the Easy Catamaran Owners Facebook Group where they are members. Try your luck there if not maybe log on to DIY Yachts and see if anyone has an unused set of plans available.
