Plans are complete and lofted to full size, frames, stringers, transom assembly, hatches etc…includes a detailed set up plan showing heights from baseline and spacings. The Custom Barrelback 19 of the same era may also be of intrest to Chris Craft enthusiasts.
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. Location: CT Looking for Chris Craft plans I am looking for a set of plans for the 1937-1940 Chris Craft 16ft race boat. Location: CT I contacted the Mariner's Museum, but they do not have those plans on file. Originally Posted by nbehlman I am looking for a set of plans for the 1937-1940 Chris Craft 16ft race boat.
If you wish to get your hands on the John Hacker Plans or the Chris Craft plans you need to know exactly what type of boat drawing, Photograph, brochure etc. Location: Bellingham WA I'm toying with the idea of adapting the signature design elements of these old Chris Crafts into a kayak design. Location: Fort Lee, Virginia That's great if you like to work your arms out.
Location: CT I think the performance debits can be mitigated by smart design. Originally Posted by nbehlman I think the performance debits can be mitigated by smart design. As far as I can see, the key design elements of this vintage of Chris Crafts are the continuous deck with small cockpits, the planked decking, rounded sterns, single hard chine near the waterline, and fairly vertical prows.
Originally Posted by Eric Sponberg Your wine glass section might be OK for a displacement-type hull like a kayak, but quite the wrong shape for a planing hull form, in my opinion. Eric You're absolutely right, the design I'm talking about would not be suitable for a full size planing hull, but should be tolerable for a displacement design.
Besides, if I could plane my fat a$$ in a kayak then we would have to re-think some laws of hydrodynamics!

You may have to pay research fees for the staff to determine if they have the plans, and if they do to have them copied. The first few times you had at it, you probably could barely please yourself, but with practice and some guidance, you managed to impress one or two prom dates.
It would obviously be much more narrow than a Chris Craft and you would have to taper the stern quite a bit.
The continuous planked deck, small cockpit, and steep prow are all common kayak design elements, and the hard chine is mostly a function of construction method. An extremely high-quality publication, The Brass Bell is the flagship publication for the antique and classic boat niche.

Built roughly around the same era as their famous barrelbacks many of the lines are very similar if not identical. I plan to build a small classic runabout and I have a couple Hacker designs I like, but I would like to check out this particular Chris Craft design. I was able to get a few chris craft drawings from the mariners museum that turned out to be not exactly what I wanted.


I wrote a code that reverse engineers the radius of curvature of the film and flam on the 1937 double cockpit runabout. The CCs used a shallow V planing hull form at the stern, which could come with a significant drag penalty in a displacement hulled kayak. From specifications to handling, Terry delivers a review of a very impressive and popular little boat. I have a few plans that I like, but I am really interested ini the early 16 and 17 ft chris crafts.
I was able to contact a guy in new Hampshire that had exactly what I wanted, but he refused to share.
They corrected the design flaw and so I am probably gonna use the Neiman Marcus hull and profile on my boat. I another code for weight, displacement calculations etc but I'm sure there's plenty of stuff out there for that. To avoid this, I'm thinking of using a modified wineglass stern design like the one shown below. I ended up designing my own boat based on some plans and pictures, then made my own desired modifications. If the waterline was at the level of the chine then it would give the appearance of the CC design while minimizing the drag penalty.
When I was developing the lines for my boat, I essentially cross breeded my own line drawings with chris craft stuff to get what I wanted.
I took a pic I found edited it in paint and then opened it in PowerPoint copied it pasted it, rotated it and now I have the frames. The woman to contact about Photographs of the plans is Erin Lopater Phone757) 591-7769 Fax: (757) 591-7354.
