Barros Designed Multi-Chine 28

http://www.yachtdesign.com.br/02_ingles/index_ingles.htm under stock plans, multi-chine 28.

Any of the resident experts (or random visitors) care to speculate about likley pros and cons of a vessle like this?

Should moving the traver to the back of the cocpit be a big issue?

Any idea why it would have the larger headsail than main?

Random Thoughts?

Thanks.

-- James

PS, the Barros who designed it is in no way related to me, which is odd, because it fits most of my requirements better than any other boat I''ve seen.

Not a resident expert, but these barros designs appear to be knock offs of classic good old American naval architect designs of the ''70''s updated and stylized a bit.

The 28 you are looking at appears a lot like a Jensen Marine/Bill Lapworth designed Cal 27 - T2, AKA the pop top. Of course, the chines are added to ease construction with 2 dimensional materials (plywood).

As far as the masthead high aspect main sail plan, it dates from the era before frac rigs. You might say it is a bit dated also, though I like wrestling with big headsails. Eyeballing it, the rig appears proportioned exactly as Mr. Lapworth designed it!!

Unless you are bound and determined to build a hull, suggest you pick up a T2 and convert the interior to your liking.

Here is a pic of one:

A lot of classic plastic under 30'' laying around!!

I wouldn''t move the traveller unless you put on a longer boom, because otherwise it looks like the line will interfere with the entire cockpit. If you have the tiller like in the drawing you would tend to be at the front of the cockpit anyway.

It is a nice efficient layout, but I am wondering where you would sleep while at sea. The quarterberth may work if some sailbags or something were wedged in with you.
When I first looked at the boat I assumed it was a steel boat, but I am less enthusiastic about a plywood cored hull. I am sure it would be fine, but I would prefer some other core or none.
