Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Paulo,
I will definitely think about your comments. I am not concerned right now, because, as said before, I can stretch my budget if necessary and the overall result is worth of it. Let us put the...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Copacabana: I am really not sure about the hull itself. Materials, power, workers and space rent are very expensive these days in Brazil. Argentina and Uruguay could be good possibilities, but...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

PCP: Back a bit….I am not a “top sailor”, perhaps one day in not too distant future, but I am 43 years old “yet”, so, unless **** hits the fan, there is plenty of time to be an “ok” sailor. Hummmm,...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Paulo: I am currently exploring a possible way to build the boat offshore and bring it to Brazil without paying all the taxes. No conclusions yet, but it seems doable and not too risky. If this...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Outbound: I have changed my mind a bit, now 45-55 seems to be the way to go, but, for sure, it will depend upon the project. Also, I want to have the equipment and gadgets to facilitate my job, but...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Paulo,
Quick question: I found some references about weight. Apparently, a steel boat with the same size and design would weight 2-3 times more than an AL one. Is this accurate? What about a...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

No, I am not rich (un)fortunately, unless you count my friends as my wealth! So, let´s established the following size limit: 35 to 50. Now, I need to browse around and check what can be accomplished...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Paulo,
You are right about finding AL workers in São Paulo, but before I follow another path (i.e. forget about AL or decide to buy either a new or a used boat) it is important to make sure there is...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Paulo,
Thanks again.
I can stretch my budget once I am in control of all variables. But, for now, I must have a ballpark figure to direct my search and analysis. One thing I can assure to you: it...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Thanks for the explanation. I believe I understood it.

In respect to welding, let´s put this way, in some parts of the 3rd world it is much harder to find a metal worker who knows how to work on...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Paulo,
I read the thread “Steel or not” as mentioned by Faster. Putting the BS aside, it provides interesting information about the pros and cons of steel boats. I must confess that somehow I don´t...

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Unfortunately I don't have a double citzenship nor I can apply to one. Otherwise it could be a good idea to reduce taxes.

Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.

Sometimes this is the way to go, but creating an offshore company is not a solution. It might even increase the problem and make it more expensive if the tax authorities decide that you are doing...
