Devlin's "Nancy's China"?

Devlin's "Nancy's China"?

I'm ready to build a small outboard cruiser capable of negotiating
skinny water for gunkholing and possessing a traditional appearance.
Stambaugh's "Redwing" is my first love but she's a mite more boat than
I wish to tackle.   I would like to try deleting the mast step and
centerboard on Nancy's China and adding an outboard well for something
like a 5hp Honda 4-cycle.  I've talked to folks who weren't estatic
over Nancy's sailing close to the wind but this is immaterial to my
projected use.  I'd like to hear about her overall stability .  I have
twice written to Devlin's boatworks asking for his opinion of this and
for a quote on a set of revised plans-- no response.  If there's
anyone with experience with Nancy's China, I'd sure appreciate hearing
from you.  Thanks.
