Check this website for Hess information. The NorSea association is trying to put together a Hess Library or archive of plans. Lets hope that somebody does, I would hate to think that these treasures might disappear.
If you really like this style of yacht, and any sailor who's blood still flows must, have a look at Paul Gartside's page for some of the most delightful examples of the english workboat style.

Interesting sites, thanks for the input. Eddy and Duff, LTD of Mattapoisett, MA, USA also produce the Lyle Hess series of Fatty Knees dinghies to a high standard in glass.
Sure would be neat, or a feat, if one had a collection of study plans for Hess's smaller boats... I recall a cat boat and other interesting 'trailer sailors'...
