    Google Glen L boat plans. -Don't know if what they offer is APBA class legal, but it's a start.
    Remember that the Ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.

    Glen L isn't APBA legal. I've done over an hour of googling on this with no result.

    I have the diagram but that's just gives me the OML requirements and not the internal structure. I understand the frame placement location requirement for wood boats, but I don't know the shape of each frame. I don't know how the motor should mount or how to handle the drive line.

    Harlan Orrin has a couple different sets of cracker box plans for sale. I believe he has the Wickens and Champion plans. I'd look at the Wickens. I believe some of them are still racing today. PM sent with Harlan's phone number. Tim

    Why don't you check with the Doige Brothers, they have built two wood Patterson's recently. Chuck Doige should be on the board here.

    Icy,
    I have the frame patterns for both the Patterson and the Wickens crackerboxes, there is very little difference on the bottoms between the two, I will PM you my number and we can talk about them. Are you planning on racing or just building a fun boat?

    Trying to get a word on elligibility from APBA based on a medical issue I have. If I build it'll be 2 or 3 years before I'm on the water most likely. I want to race but waiting word from APBA on an issue. If I can't race then I'm probably not going to build it so I'm kind of waiting on that before I chase down all the leads I've gotten from the forum.

    I'll be in long beach most likly both days (Sat/Sun). Are you going to be there?

    We will be at Long Beach, I am running the P-21 Gramps Cracker and my brother is running the P-94 High Maintenance, there should be a decent turnout of Crackers, be sure to come by and look us up we can talk some there!
