Cheers guys,

Yes have seen boat in link - budget 5 - 10k / specs 12ft to 14ft max / 202 engine / width 5 to 6ft

Hey Red Dwarf have seen some links for your cracker box it is way cool - might be interested in your other boat - bit of an inboard sort of guy - the cyclone has made it to Kalg and there is water in lake so skiing is the go for next week. A long time between drinks.

The criteria is for light weight - easy towing and easy handling onto trailer at end of day - I love the look of the Cracker box style where you sit behind motor - there is 5 tiny mites in Kalgoorlie all built by old local guys (some deceased) no one interested in selling

I am building the tiny mite but are worried it will never finish you know how projects go - but are navigating lofting and layout of drawings.

Cheers guys

the switzer bullet is from an australian who is redrawing several old boats from 10' to over 30' the link is /www.classicwoodenboatplans.com/index.htm
the bullet is a flat bottom 13' race type boat that was considered a hydroplane back in the 50's .more of a flat water boat not the best in chop it will take up to a 70hp engine depending on how thick you build the hull. it slides in te corners .patience is required in building sometimes during building i'd sit back and ponder for a while.
