Location: CT Looking for Chris Craft plans 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.

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.

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! When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
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. It is a great step between the Lancer 20 and the Corsair 25 with all of the beautiful styling details you have come to expect from the closed-deck and cuddy cabin boats of Chris-Craft. 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.
Shown here in our Heritage Edition package with all teak options, the unique design of this boat is Chris-Craft through and through. 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.
This is a problem since my success on these will hopefully help propel me to a position where I can one day, hopefully( a big hope) own one of these.
I would putt around the many coves of Moultonborough Bay in my 14′ Starcraft with a 20HP Johnson and I would discover a new beauty to dream of owning one day.
When Dad was feeling flush we would take a boat ride out of Weirs Beach in what they called a Winnepesaukee Racer and the ride was the most incredible and exhilarating experience of my youth. We probably took a ride after that and got some pretty good air off the chop of the often turbulent lake waters.
Durning my short stint in great land of Ohio, I went out dozens of times in both vessels to Put-in-Bay. The movie is worth not seeing not for this though, but rather the two best faces ever to star in one movie.I had the pleasure of helping to restore a Chris-Craft Sedan like the one in this link.
