Cackler 14

The Cackler is a new generation hunting skiff designed for hunting in areas where seaworthiness is essential and at a time of year when great distances may need to be covered in a hurry to avoid cold nasty weather. The Cackler will carry a load in those conditions of two to three men and gear. I have been hunting in 40 plus knots of wind with four hunters, three dogs, and six dozen decoys. She performed admirably and still got up on plane. The Cackler has an ingenious outboard well that accommodates up to a 35 hp outboard. Six-gallon fuel tanks fit under the rear deck on both sides of the well. The Cackler can be enlarged to 16 or 18 easily and is an outstanding performer.

The Cackler 14 is available as study and full construction plans, as well as a CNC cut kit.

  1. I have download your plans and I going to start sorting them out so I can make Crackler out of aluminium.
    Hope to start the build next year.
    I will send you pictures of the build if you would like I think it going to talk a while as I can only do the welding in work and there is not the space to just leave it there.
    already looked at them and I think this should be the boat for me, need to make it a little narrower because of the landing area I have to use.
    Thank you for your help

  2. Nice looking design. Can the cockpit be made self draining? Any guess how fast she would be with an 18 hp 2-stroke?
