Pondering a 1966 Glastron runabout build

Crazy Jay here at work has one, so I have access to a prototype to take measurements and inspiration from.
does anyone know of any plans out there to start out with for a boat like this?



simple out board motor, generaly used for pleasure crafting and water ski towboat.and I THINK it was the foundation boat for the old 60's era batman series batboat...

one of the first all fiberglass hull speed boats on the market.. so, y'know.. historical significance and stuff.

so back to the question at hand.. any plans for something like this out there to start with?

Just wondering why it's idling along with no body in it?

Its the Batboat man... kinda like a old westerns horse... if you are in trouble you just gotta whistle really loud and it'll come tearing around the corner to rescue you

that boat right there isn't idling unattended... it's...

...waiting.

I would say first find an outboard that you like and build around that to scale .
