There were two sources for plans modeled after Joshua Slocum's SPRAY.


SPRAY Plans - created by Ken Slack, author of In the Wake of the Spray
Ken Slack is no longer living.

Plans were being sold by Kendal Slack, one of Ken's sons.
A full set of plans were being sold for AU$795.00 plus shipping.
The plans are no longer available.
Kendal Slack and his father lived in Australia

The website that was used for the Spray plans is no longer in existance.

Concerning these plans, Ken wrote:
"My plans are as close to the original as possible,
since I prepared them for my own use and
have no need to respond to market demands."

The set comprised:

1. Lines plan and table of offsets, scale one inch to the foot.
2. Construction plan and table of specifications, scale one inch to the foot.
3. Special construction plan with details of sternpost, deadwood and rudder, together with a transom expansion, scale one inch to the foot.
4. Sail plan and rigging profile, scale half inch to the foot.
