Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

I don't think that is why he restricted the engine displacement but more for keeping the boat to safe speeds. The Glenn-L newsletter #25 essentially said the same in pointing out the difference in the bow design between the Riviera and Barrelback. The Barrelback bow will cause it to submarine at hi...

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

The latest Glenn-L newsletter linked this article on balancing the center of buoyancy vs. the center of gravity. http://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/50592/buoyancy-balance-hull/. It would be hard to move enough weight forward to offset moving the engine aft one frame. So to move the center of buoyancy af...

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

Thanks, Gary. That's a good site, and there's an intrinsic quality to free that's hard to beat. The CAD jockey info could explain the crickets I got in reply to a question I sent about stretching the plans. Concur on the value of the Glen-L plans and the forum. My interest in the CC Riviera plans wa...

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

This comes from the land down under, plans for the original Chris Craft Riviera (among others). It says 17' overall length, though I've only seen it as an 18' boat. They don't have anything on the Capri.

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

Thanks, Bill. I like your Tahoe 19 build a lot. That boat has nice lines. Wish the Barrelback had the same, particularly the transom. This is a Chris Craft Riviera 18 that I like a lot. If I could modify the Barrelback transom, it would be close. Rivera 18.jpg For those interested, here is a list of...

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

Thanks, Jenko. I hadn't found that forum. Now to see if the plans are still out there.

You're right, Yone 22. Never trust auto-correct.

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

Chips, you da man! You're looking for exactly the same thing I am for the same reasons. Why V-8? Because V-8, that's why! A recent Glenn-L newsletter pointed out that their Tahoe and Riviera hull designs can support higher speeds than the Barrelback hull. And personally I like the look of the Tahoe ...
