    it is far less costly to buy, espcially used, that to build. Only build if you like creating something with your hands, and you can not buy what you want.

    for a modern design best to buy plans from a reputable designer. There are lots of free plans for "traditional" boat designs, but you will be on your own if you want to update teh contruction methods and materials.

    free plans at sites like:

    Good luck

    If you are going to go with the Glen-L double eagle, pay for his plans. You get what you pay for; if anyone else is offering them for less they're likely pirated.
