"The majority of the Smithsonian watercraft plans are NOT original builder's plans. Most are the result of field documentation [...] the Smithsonian cannot warrant the seaworthiness or safety of vessels built from its collection of study plans. " XD XD XD XD

Are you going to build USS Essex replica and try to sail it or something? :) This is US and it's a normal procedure to avoid Court Cases filed by dumb people. 
 

These plans are perfect for games and ship models.

Chappelle's book is a great source for information on US vessels. Likely to be more than 15 USD though.
