Default Cajun Gator Airboat Plans Wanted

Hi all. So, I have been bitten by the airboat bug this year. I have already built a foam version of the Lil' Swamp Buggy. Today I went out and bought a sheet of plywood to build the Cajun Gator Airboat. Already bought an engine, radio, receiver, then I came home, only to realize that I must have lost my copy of the plans on my old computer. So, I was wondering if anyone here would happen to have a set saved that they would like to please send me. I would try Mr.Gator himself, but he has not logged in for quite some time now. Thank you in advance to anyone who may be able to help me out.

Cool Cajun Gator Airboat Plans

I updated the Cajun Gator Airboat Plans with a center line on ribs (1-3). I've seen these plans in other posts so I took the image files of the plans and did some work with them in Corel Draw.
The plans are done on Tabloid sized paper (11"X17") paper, but I did include the orginal plans for reference to measurements.

Birch is the best and probably the most common.
