Thanks to both of you.. Chuck I have learned a lot about building lightweight boats from your previous post. Light weight wooden core and and thin epoxy layers seem to be the key to light weight building.
The boat looks very nice no matter which way the strips run. The natural/bright finish lets the wood show its beauty.
We may have covered this but, how deep is the boat at mid ship? Are the tumblehome panels set at 90 deg. to the sides?
Thanks for sharing. I need to make a summary of specs, angles, depth,length, etc and the effects on each other and characteristics in the boat. Just so I can understand it all!The 8.75" sides would not be enough for my payload. The width of my sides is about that much and I angle the tumblehome panel at about 115 deg. to get a depth of 10" at mid ship.
Your lower profile should decrease the wind signature and will be stiffer.
