Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Be great if you could include a nesting design.+1 on that. Love to put it on foredeck. Scared to fly fish in my RIB. Don't have my backcasts perfect all the time and scared to put a gaff in her. Hate engines. Rowboats are too cool. If you do a cad/cam I would buy a disc.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I think a bottom plate (a bit of wedge and rocker) and two origami sides to a pramish bow could give the beam needed for a stable tender.Then cut in half for nesting Voila!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm sure Brent will chime in shortly with some good advice. His book has the plans for an origami aluminium dinghy that can perhaps be tinkered with to get Bob's shapes. I'd love to see this go forward- the world needs a decent aluminium nesting dinghy!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

It would be rather cool to have Brent and Bob cooperate together on a project.

Bravo to Bob for suggesting it.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

This would be a great outcome to this thread. A alu dingy would be a hit up here as well in AK. A nesting one even better!

Bob and Brent working together. Hmmm, reminds me of Ghostbusters...


EDIT: All kidding aside though. I sure hope Brent takes this in the right spirit. It could really change the tone of this discussion to being very positive and constructive. It would be great to see a aluminum dink turn this steel ship around.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Aluminum dinghies from a famous designer is following in a long (forgotten) tradition. The first boat that I ever sailed in was a Phillip Rhodes designed aluminum dinghy called the Grumman Gull.

Len:
I can tell you now the bow will not be "pramish". I want this to be a beautiful boat.

Yes, it was a sliding gunther rig. The intent was that the spars could stow in the boat, but I don't recall them actually fitting in the dinghy.

I recall the boat sailing reasonably well but of course what did I know since this was the first time that I ever went sailing.
