Plans For WAM Proas?

Everybody probably already knows this, but WAM = Waan Aaelon in Majel: a grassroots non-profit, non-government organization that trains Marshall Islands youth based on the traditions of the Marshallese canoe.
Basically they teach (taught?) kids to build proas as in and other pix in that Picassa album.
In trying to find a source for plans I got a reply from The Mieco Beach Yacht Club on Majuro Atoll to the effect that the plans belonged to James Wharram Designs.
Looking at the Wharram pages, I do not see anything like that.
Is Wharram really the designer?
If so, are the plans for sale?
