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 35 hp outboard. Six gallon fuel tanks fit under the rear deck on both sides of the well.
NOTE: The Cackler 14 plans include hull panel dimensions which can easily be transferred to the plywood. Full-size patterns are not available nor required to build this model.
