    I have an origional set of plans for a Spencer Adrian 24'6 keeler that i got when i purchased my boat. They are hand written and signed by John Spencer and look to be a complete set. I would like some indication of the value of the plans if someone can help me with that.. Thanks..

    GAV 501, the design was "Adrienne" by the way, I too have an unused set of drawings, John signed each set as they were printed and sent out (when he checked for errors) Seeing it was one of his less successful designs they are not really worth anything, just something to pin on the wall and look at.

    John Spencer was an un-pretentious practical man, who would have been horrified at the thought that his plans would be of value for anything other than building a boat. (and would have said so in no uncertain terms).
