    I am searching for model boat plans that I can use to build a very stable, sail-powered, small craft. I am hoping you folks can make a recommendation to me for plans that meet my criteria.

    Here are the criteria for the design I'm looking for:

    1. It should be seaworthy in ocean conditions. It will need to be highly resistant to capsizing.

    2. It should sail with only a small amount of heel.

    3. Plans should be available and contain all pieces I would need to cut. A 3D model that allows me to scale up/down as needed and print out these pieces would be ideal.

    4. Ideal length is about 4 feet long, but again, if there's a model, I could scale.

    Here is some inspiration for something like what I am looking for:

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
