Bleemers:
Those loops are part of the "dump chest" arrangement. I can't take credit for the plumbing. But I'll pass on your approval to the plumber. Anthony.

Snipe:
Everything about this build is "serious".

Jeff:
Many thanks for the images. They sure look sharp the way you present them.

I have been playing. A friend of mine saw the pilot house/ center cockpit sketch I did on the cutter hull. He said it would be fun to see that in 50'. That got the ball rolling and when that happens i need to see the idea drawn out. So in the next couple days I'll post a 52' LOA version of the carbon cutter. Just for fun.

Bob,

It is my pleasure. I have been really enjoying seeing the building process. The shot of the dolphins and the pipe are really artful. It seems like you are enjoying the new(ish) camera.

It's funny, I have been thinking that conceptually a larger version the Cutters might be interesting. I had been thinking that at the length of 42 feet is one heck of a boat. thinking that these are burdensome hulls and these must feel like a much bigger boat. A 52 footer would seem huge.

I almost wonder if the design became that large whether it does not start to become a conceptually a different boat. Obviously, the length to beam and sail plan proportions will change. Perhaps the hull form becomes something closer to the New York pilot schooners instead of the British Channel cutters.

In any case, I look forward to seeing what you come up with.....

Jeff

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Jeff:
I fiddled with all the proportions on the 52' version. But it's a heavy boat to get the volume I need while keeping freeboard low. Who cares? I'm just having some fun drawing a boat.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

I revised the pilot house of the 52' carbon PH Cutter. I added a sit down chart table.
Maybe Jeff could turn this into an image for me please.

Apropos of chart tables, when we were shopping for our 'big boat' back in the 90's, one of the deciding factors was the 'proper' forward facing chart table in the Olson 34.
We park the MacBook there, prepare food there sometimes, read books and magazines, write in the log... and occasionally even unroll a large chart on it!

Having a dedicated "desk" on a boat is really handy, IMHO.
