Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I've been trying to grasp how that would fold up without having virtually full length chines. I wasn't expecting the darts to be anywhere near that long.

This is MY INTELLECTUAL property.
But since you have been involved all the way since the dream of this boat started with the Rat's post I will show you.

This is preliminary and obsolete as per my talk with my 3D guy tonight. We will make this perfect. Just give me a few days.

Enjoy.

Why isn't Brent helping out? I don't get it. He's the expert.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bob,

She is really taking shape very nicely.

Looking at the smashed view, I was surprised that there wasn't more 'broadseaming' on the topsides gore. The smashed image is very small on my monitor so I may be misreading this, but it looks like the two sides of this cut remain in contact with each other for the entire length of the stakes. I wonder whether you need this gore and what shape would emerge if this gore was eliminated or reduced.

Jeff

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

The computer needs it Jeff. You may not need it. We now have a rough cardboard model.

I'm not zackly sure what you are saying. Of course the sides of the cut remain in contact. If they didn't there would be a hole in the boat. What am I missing?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Tom:
I am talking to Jim Betts in Anacortes about building the skiff. Jim built a 63'er of my design and he is a true artist with alu. We will go over the model in detail and I am confident that when we begin we will have a design that can be built without problems. That's what a good designer does automatically.


I like to keep a good, positive attitude when I start a new project:
When we started the FT10m project in China I was attacked from every angle for trying to do a high tech sport boat in China. We sold 122 FT10m's and just made a fleet sale of 13 more FT7.5m's to the Chinese Navy. They bought 20 7.5's last year. Despite the naysayers the Flying Tiger project has been very profitable for me.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bob

Will you be looking for pretty but exposed welds or a polished inside and out look ?

Would they anodize the hull after its finished as it should not be near as hard to find a tank that size ?

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Tom:
What I have in mind is a workboat level of finish. So I think that would mean leaving the welds exposed. This process is new to me so I will be learning what I really want as I go along. Like life.

No anodizing. No nuttin. I live on a beach where there is a combo of sand and rocks depending on the tide level. I need to have a boat that I can drag over the rocks, within reason. The rocks are big, round like pebbles. I have a design for a dolly wheel that will fit on the stern. Just not keen on having the look of the wheel. I'll see.
