New project - what do you think...?

Post by PeterW » Tue Oct 05, 2010 11:54 pm

Evening all !!

Now I've cleared the garage I've now got chance to build a small (10ft) boat to use with the Forty plus that I restored last year.

Its been designed in carene, and this is the freeship output so far

Hull needs a skeg as its going to be dragged up a few shingle beaches where I plan to use it

Comments please !!!

Cheers

Not the correct nautical speak, looks a bit fat up the sharp end.

Also for that waterline I would think you will need loads of ballast.

Stick it on a diet and make it.

Thanks H-A

The waterline that is shown is the one freeship has put in and I have no idea where it gets the information from in relation to calculating that !!

I'll have a play with bow widths etc and then get on with building it ! It's designed to use 3 sheets of ply with a double skinned transom for strength.

Cheers

Ok...

Mk6 Hull with a few changes made, looks more 'boaty' at the front now ! :D

Its also shorter by 350mm, making it a shade over 10ft, which is ideal as its got to fit on the Land Rover !
