This was an interesting way to start a design. The client had a couple of Super Snipe engines kicking about and he wanted to sell them. What better way to do it and to get the greatest return for his money than to package them. The package that we chose was a 1930's style runabout similar to the old Hackers and Chris Craft, but instead of using traditional methods of construction, we have made things easy and quick by using stitch and epoxy methods throughout with pre-shaped ply frames, girders and hull panels. The frames and girders are simply slotted together. The standard arrangement has a forward control cockpit with bench seat with a large aft seating cockpit. LOA 24' 6"; Beam 6'; Overall weight approx. 2200 lbs. Note, the drawings now give detils for ply over frame construction with stringers.
