This iconic racing boat was originally designed by George Crouch in 1924 and went on to win the 1924 and 1925 APBA Gold Cup. It has been said that the 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world.
There are some 15 frames, 2 keels, twin hatch assembly, vertical cleats, gas tank fixing, drivers bench seat, breast hook, front and rear stems with knees etc. In brief, Baby Bootlegger was originally drawn with some 54 frame, spaced from 6 to 7 inches apart.
The Bay Pilot 18 is a smaller boat with very much the same underbody as the Jiffy V-22, which has earned high praise from its builders for good performance and excellent sea-keeping qualities. Construction uses the girder method (one each side in this boat); the hull is built upside down over a series of bulkheads and frames.
The plans include nine large sheets of drawings, showing the hull at various stages of construction, full size details, cabin layout, and other information. The plans include drawings and instructions for the cabin cruiser and center console models show below.


EPOXY KIT:The epoxy kit comes from System Three Resins, and provides you with all the resin, hardener, fiberglass cloth, additives, measuring pumps, brushes, rollers, and other items that you will need.
In brief, there are 16 frames including the transom, full length stringers, dual stepped keel set up, engine hatch assay and seat assay. Due to many requests, Super Flyer was drawn up, providing identical lines and looks as the original 15 footer.
Babyface Nelson is a replica of this fine vessel and it is absolutely amazing, built by Bruce Hutchison, a dedicated enthusiast with an eye for beauty. It has a rear and forward cockpit, twin separate fuel tanks, a rear deck and enough detail to frighten the bravest of men! Full size patterns, printed on Mylar, show the stem, transom, bulkheads, building frames, girders, and other items.
The larger Flyer allows for more room in the cockpit area for those wishing to include back to back seats for passengers.
Also included is an illustrated building manual, which takes you step by step through the building process.


I found this to be a very advanced design in that the stringers start at the transom and end at Frame 2.
It includes specifications, a list of materials, sources for marine plywood, and other information. Other than its impressive deck lines, Zephyr lends itself to a variety of engine sizes through its generous beam.
This tested plan has the corrected offsets incorporated into the lines so is suitable for full size construction without the need for correcting the lines and attempting to fair frames. Original offsets are notorious for errors as they were often measured up as a matter of record rather than used to build.
