Re: I'm a Boat Builder! G-L Ski Tow under construction!

Re: Just ordered plans Cracker 15'

I only have one sheet and all frames are on the same sheet. We had another that scanned them in and had success. I will reach out to him to see if there was any differences between the patterns and the plans. Seems kind of you know what that the patterns were not true to the plans since you paid for...

Just ordered plans Cracker 15'

Greetings all!,
Going to stretch this so I can fit a transmission and hope to launch middle of next year, probably smoking crack. The only way I can make this happen is with the combined help from all of you and digitizing the plans and having a little CNC carve some time off.

Re: Another Cracker box in Michigan

I am ordering my plans this week and have been lurking about. Seems like you really need to stretch to get the velvet drive to fit. I am planning on stretching. Here is another one being built and he stretched his. Maybe drop him a line.

Re: cracker box - is born

Andy,
Your boat is looking awesome. I think I have finally settled on the same boat. I will be purchasing plans this coming week. I also have access to a CNC machine and am pumped you did the same. Looking forward to your progress.
Thanks,
Tim
