To answer the OP's Q,not many people interested in larger wooden structured boats.They are extremely expensive to have them built.Those that have the means will usually want a traditional wooden boat build.Only us younger up and comers will strike out on our own and build something modern with epoxy and ply.

I'm prepping to build a 27-30 foot ply on frame design from Spira International.I'm holding off on buying plans, as Jeff will be releasing some new designs.One I am particularly interested in is a 27' LOA with 8'6" beam double ender, named the San Juan.Think St. Pierre dory with a rounded stern.I have the study plans for San Juan for review.They haven't been placed on Spira's website yet.However,I have been seriously hung up on his PNW dory plans,properly named Sitka,stretched to 30' with a V entry bow.I still have a couple years to decide before I can start building.
