    Hi,
    Taking my first steps;
    I'm looking for plans for a boat between 15' en 20', as close as possible to the Gar Wood 16' Speedster. Anyone out there with experience that can point me in the direction of someone who can supply high quality plans?

    Thanks!

    Rasorinc,
    Thanks, i've been looking around on their site for a while and i really like the Biscayne and Key Largo but the more i think about it the more i'm drawn to the Gar Wood Speedster.

    SamSam,
    Thanks, i've mailed him to see if he can help me out.

    I was planning to order them from classicwoodenboatplans but i can't find anyone who as actually build one of these using those plans. I'll keep that as Plan B for now.
    I also ordered som plans at DNGoodchild, very nice for that price but not enough to actually build a boat unless you have a lot of boatbuildingexperience. There are measurements on the plans but they so small and unclear i can really read them.
    I might give the plans from woodenboatmagazine a shot but in the description of the 16' runabout they mention a 26hp-engine so i guess it's a completely different design as the Gar Wood Speedster?
