Designer Wanted
I need assistance in finding an individual who can design a 30'' light displacement sailboat for me. Haven''t been able to find a website other than the big firms, which I can''t afford. You can post to the board or e-mail me privately at arthurwkelly@msn.com if you wish. Thanks!

Am looking for a builder to construct a one off sailboat in fiberglass in the 28 to 30 foot range. Canada or the U.S. preferable. Boat design is a lightweight trailerable racer/cruiser without a lot of frills. Interested parties may e-mail me at arthurwkelly@msn.com

Hi: I have four sailboat designs that I would like 3D renderings produced for. I am looking at three to four drawings per design. Must be reasonably priced.

Glad you are back Slapmandoo. SA is an interesting site. It is based in San Diego so I actually know a few of the posters and their boats. I actually bought some of their gear. Burgee, T-shirt, ballcap, etc. Its a pretty raucous crowd over there but they have no problem talking about new boat designs.

HOLY **** BATMAN! I must be getting allenheimers. The Kiwi boat was on the front page about two months ago. Had a picture of it being built in the factory. They had one of those contests to to see if anyone could guess the who, what, when, etc.

THANK YOU SLAPMANDOOOOOO!

I am sure one of the morons here can dig back and find the picture/article on it.

Please, please, please do.

I like it just fine as I said before, for what it is. Again, a big step in the right direction. It looks like a very good third option in the US (or wherever). Starter boat for the masses VS hunter or catalina. THE WHEEL IS AN OPTION I also said before. Look on the website.

Um, Mr Dibbly, how much is this boat going to sell for? What do you suppose it will PHRF out to. I'm thinking fairly quick COMPARED to the competition in family cruisers. Is there really 6' headroom? And I see no head. Looks like there is plenty of room for an enclosed head.
People this is not supposed to compete with a melges32 but a catahunter 28. I own a Tartan28 which at the time, in the early 80's, was a fairly quick, decently appointed 28er. This is the new version of that design brief. I would change out the little square hunter windows for a couple of opening lewmars, try to do something with the rubrail, get rid of that silly wheel, at least put a 44" on for pictures, and sell some. Get that little wheel off and delete that image from everywhere. Lift keel and lift rudder. I think the masses have been waiting for this. Ya people will jump on the bandwagon and say this and that but they are squarely NOT the target group. I would also build a fixed keel 5.5" draft version. Would be a bit sturdier for the newbies to run aground, and more room to waltz around below. 6"5" draft is a bit much for new boat owners.
Again, how much?
Hi H20.
My name is Arthur Kelly and I am President of Kiwi Boat Works U.S.A. located in Elizabeth, Colorado.
First let me thank the Editor for placing one of our early construction photographs on the site. We have been thrilled to see the number of hits to this thread as well as the numerous inquiries that have been received to date.
Please note that the picture represents the prototype of the K-280c and there will obviously be modifications as we move forward.
We are still working on pricing but are getting close.
The standard boat will be fairly well equipped:
H20.....based on what you know about the boat to date and what I have provided, what would you peg the base price at to not only be competitive bu to drive market share.

I ask this because your post is so close to our original brief.

Best regards,
Art Kelly

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks, Stroker.

Appreciate you posting this information. Alhough I am not Art Kelly, it does go to show the boat isn't a figment of my imagination.

Now go plug in the heart monitor and hit the sack.

Nighty night.
