Re: Full Keel

Did a B-40 and a Passport mate?

Now if it has a Westsail keel, you'd have something there, Bob.

Re: Full Keel

Thanks guys.
No it will be a dark blue hull with a teak overlay on the transom as per the client's current Hinckley.

Can't very well expect you guys to get a feel for the design if I don't post those numbers.

I assume you are going to make a full keel version and that's why you are posting this gorgeous boat on a full keel thread. When can we see it?

I prefer the full keel. Twin keels don't make sense on a narrow boat

Re: Full Keel

When I get a free moment I'll draw the Paulo's full keel version. That will be fun.

Yes you are right. The boat has even went up on the classification and is now in 13th on compensated. To be on that position regarding bigger boats and to be only in 13th on compensated that means also that it is a relatively fast boat (with a high rating), certainly a very fast boat for a full keel and one very well sailed (they are cruising not racing).

I was curious about the boat that I did not knew and found out that the boat was built for a long time and only the first versions were made of wood. The designer Arvid Laurin designed a new boat in fiberglass in 1960:

"In their search for a suitable plug, they chose "Casella II" an Arvid Laurin design - which had participated in the Transatlantic Race from Bermuda to Gothenburg n 1960, arranged to celebrate the centenary of the foundation of GKSS (Gothenburg's Royal Yacht Club). Her owner - Yngve Cassel - was approached and for a fee he agreed to have his boat used as a full-scale mould

Somehow Arvid Laurin got wind of this plan and pointed out to MFI, that it was not recommendable to build a glass fibre version of an old design, when he could draw them a better and faster one, especially designed to take advantage of the flexibility of glass fiber construction. MFI agreed and Arvid Laurin set out to do something quite new to him, drawing a 32' boat that would not be built of wood but in a much more flexible material allowing curvatures that previously had been impossible."


Laurin 32

The last versions used cored hulls for superior stiffness and less weight. A very interesting boat that should have been very fast in its days and that today if well sailed can still have a relatively good performance. A nice one too:





I saw also that the boat has been used extensively for offshore sailing and have circumnavigated several times:

Blue Water

Regarding the Corona, the one that is doing the ARC. here you have the boat blog:

They are not young, but great sailors no doubt:

Do me also one with a lifting keel with 1,80/3.00m draft, a keel with very narrow fin with a torpedo, with an epoxy cored hull and vacuum infusion, with a light interior and carbon mast and boom. Give me a hugely stiff boat. I am undecided between that one and the one with the full keel.

Paulo

Re: Full Keel

I think you need to get a 'good faith' deposit from Paulo, Bob.. that's a 'picky client'

.. and he'll probably want both built before he chooses!
