Don't need a stinkin engine- this is a sailing forum, we are sailors...
But I do need to figure a way to steer.. No wheel or tiller, maybe just use sail trim...

Re: Traded Up

Interesting boat. I remember reading up on the ferro-concrete ships the US played with during WW1. They took the stress well, had very little engine/shaft vibration, but needed more care when docking and bring pushed about by tugs.

I want to see more as you progress

Re: Traded Up

Figure out steering first. Until that's done nothing else matters, and it concerns me a little that after 30 years no one has installed a rudder yet.

After that fix the engine, and take her sailing!

Re: Traded Up

The interior is surprisingly nice looking compared to the exterior..

The description states "Skeg hung Rudder"

Re: Traded Up

Ok, the truth. Did not buy the boat, was just browsing and saw it. But someone bought it. Maybe they will show up on sailnet. Looks like the boat was just a "live a board". In any case, a lot of work (and money) to get her going again.

Re: Traded Up

Judging by that stern shape, someone tried to make a ferro-cement IOR race boat.

You have your work cut out for you for at least the next few years.

Whatever you do to it, keep lightness in mind. I know it seems ridiculous with a cement boat but over the years I have seen many of them - Vancouver was cement central in the 70's. The single biggest problem they suffered from (after build quality or lack thereof) was everything was made "a little stronger" than called for. I've seen quite well built ones floating 18" below their lines because of the cumulative effect of that attitude.

If you go about your refit or construction with the attitude that you are building a racer, you might be able to keep the displacement somewhere near the designed disp. or even be able to add a little ballast.

Good luck and have fun.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Traded Up

The thing that would concern me on these ferro boats is how are you sure the reinforcing steel (chicken wire) is not corroded? That is where the hull is getting its strength (tensional strength).
