Re: CRACKER BOX

I decided to save up and go for the low profile headers in the meantime I just used a leatherette cover stretched over the engine, hopefully one day I'll get to finish the hatch just need to find the boat first :( .

Re: Just ordered plans Cracker 15'

Also the inboard installation book is very handy. Start to keep an eye out on eBay for your hardware things like windshield brackets can take awhile to find at the right price.
Best of luck.
