Issue pasting a sketch onto a parallel plane in solid works

I am trying to copy a sketch I made in the right plane and paste it in a parallel plane. When I attempt to paste it I get this message:

"The item on the clipboard cannot be pasted here"

I am not sure why my sketch cannot be pasted. It is a 2-d sketch using a mirror about the y-axis of a spline with connected straight lines. (It is the cross section of a sailboat) Help please!

If the final goal is to get the same sketch onto a different plane, have you tried 1. clicking on the second plane and starting a sketch 2. clicking on the first sketch's name in the feature tree to highlight it 3. hitting the convert entities button. This should copy all of the non construction lines into your new sketch.
