Gator Boat Co. Wooden Boat Plans for the Novice Boatbuilder.


CROC Model 2-Man Utility Skiff

The Croc Model is an expanded version of the Gator Sneakboat, with a wider transom and taller sides.  This results in a dramatic increase in stability and capacity for a small boat that can fit 1 man and a mess of gear, or 2 men on short trips.  This boat really shines as a small adult and child craft.  Good for backwaters, rivers, and lakes, the transom can support an electric or gas outboard.  It can be built with or without the livewell and front seat. 
Requires no special tools or skills, and built with materials commonly available at local home centers.  This is a quick and easy boat to build and is a great compromise between a sneakboat and a johnboat.  The versatility of this boat makes it one of our top sellers.
