No worries!

Is the ballast shoe on the keel all the ballast? or is there internal ballast in the keel molding too?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The keel you see on these images is what we call a "place holder". In other words we have not really attacked the keel design because we do not have a weight study yet. But we want to complete the image so we give it a keel that I think will be very close to the final keel design. There is a natural sequence to how these items are aproached.

Nice design Bob.

I hate that dinghy place. It does nothing good to the boat aesthetics and it will take a lot of light to the interior but probably with such a narrow beam it has no space to be stored forward, I mean if the dinghy was stored there the lateral space available on the deck would be probably too small for a safe passage to the bow.

Have you 3d drawings of the interior? What is the weight of the boat? The weight you have in the drawings refers to what (I cannot read the small letters)?

That's a pity the needed small draft. That boat screams for a decent draft and a fast foiled keel, one that keeps the weight down, maximizes upwind performance, keeping the wet surface and drag low.

Regards

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo:
The client currently carries that dinghy on the foredeck. This is a big improvment over the foredeck. This is his 10 year old daughter's sailing dink and it will see a lot of use. He does not like to tow it. Where I live we usually tow our dinks. This client knows exactly how he will use his boat and he really likes his current boat. He just wanted more DWL so he could get better speed. He also wanted the freeboard as low as I could get.

We are just now getting started on 3D drawings for the interior. I'll post them when we have them.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I agree with Paulo on the placement of the dinghy.......BUT.........foredeck is not aways were one wants to put one. Nor is having davits with one hanging off the stern. Boat does not appear to be long enough to go for a rear garage as some have. That seems to start in the upper 40 to low 50' range............

I am sure the client will like the boat. For me I would want ALL the DWL I could get out of the boat, along with ALL the draft I can get........then again, I am all of 10 miles south of BP, usually in 300-600'+ of water........draft is not an issue.

Now we are talking personal tastes etc.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Bob,

I am seeing what appears to be a flip down off the stern. Is that an ingress/egress off the stern? kind of a best way to keep the classic look, yet still have an option of easy stern access when one needs this? An interesting way of solving that issue if so.

Marty

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Marty:
Yes. This will be my fourth "flip down". Remember young feller I did a flip down 30 years ago on the Islander Freeport 36. This is not my first fist fight.

Both JAKATAN and CATARI have flip downs.
