The Flyer Racing Runabout is a 13.5′ outboard powered racing runabout designed in the 1930’s by Bruce N. Crandall.
Original Plan Opening Text
“The season of 1933 saw outboard racing, which has long been popular on the Pacific Coast, gain a foothold over the entire country. The Flyer Racing Runabout has been designed for the stiffest competition, numerous experiments and long experience with West Coast runabout racing contributing towards the finished design.
While simplicity of construction is stressed in this design, speed is in no way sacrificed. This racing runabout is the result of years’ experience in designing, racing and actual manufacture of racing boats on the Pacific Coast. It turns sharply, handles well in rough water and has plenty of speed. Bevelled chines make the craft non-tripping yet the beam is sufficient to keep it riding high at full speed.
The overall length is 13 feet and 1/2 inch, and the beam 48 inches. The boat can be raced in the four runabout classes – class F, class E for service motors, and class C for racing motors and for service motors.”
This plan set is a scan of the original publication in Motor Boating’s plan book from 1936. Plans have been scanned in high resolution and adjusted for maximum clarity of the text and drawings. The plan contains material specifications, build instructions and a clear table of offsets for lofting the design.
