Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat
Well, here is the latest edition. There has been a whole lot of tweaking going on. The hull lines have faired out and become a little more powerful, there have been small adjustments to the rig. The Maestro has been aiding me in coming up with a dodger that I really like. I won't speak for Bob on this. It is not really inspired by Bob's Batman costume despite what youmay think.
One of the oddities has been designing a bow roller that fits in with the lines and which is also fully functional. I must admit that this version is a work in progress.
In the end, I think this has become a much more modern boat in almost all ways. She should be faster and more seakindly, a whole lot more stabile and easily handled in changing conditions. I cannot swear for tracking ability since the rig and hull have not fully balanced as of yet. Its on my agenda.
But anyway here is version R-7E.
