Kato's Dumas Thriftway Too Page

I've always loved the cabover style hydroplane and this model with it's mahogany deck was one of the most beautiful examples. This boat and the cabover Bardahl were two experiments in placing the driver in front of the engine. I recently aquired the dumas cowling for this model and the original model plans which I have provided below. See my graphics and plans page for a construction article and plans for making your own Thriftway Too.
