    Looking for CNC files for a 16-19' minitug. Something like the Berkeley Candu EZ or the Glen L Rebel 19. I don't want to spend my budget on plans. Any help appreciated,

    If you can't afford plans or think they are a budget buster, then you can't afford to build a boat either. Simply put, do you really think someone is going to surrender cut files for a design for free?

    I am willing to pay. And if I had created the files myself. I would give them to other amateur boatbuilders for free.

    hershey2014, I think I can help. If you have a GA and a body lines plan, things will be easy. Otherwise we will have to work a little harder but I'll be happy to help you.

    But you haven't, because you can't, and even if you did create CNC cutting files from a commercial design, you still couldn't legally release them into the public domain as this would constitute a violation of the copyright.

    If the designer's work is so worthless to you as to be worth no money, what do you think a boat built from such worthless plans is going to be like?
