Greetings... I would like to order the Alden 18' O Boat - Item #: 400-006 set of plans. It says “Plans include 4 sheets.” How big are these plans and what does level of detail “Average” mean? Thank you for your help.

Sheets are approx 20″ x 24″, 18″ x 24″. Drawings are in 3/4″=1′ and 1″ = 1′. Plans are for experienced builders, no materials lists or building procedures. Alden plans tend to have less details than more modern plans as they were drawn for professional builders.
