Scandinavian Boat Show

The Stockholm International Fairs is the site of the Scandinavian Boat Show (Swedish only), November 5-9.

A highlight of the show, from the sailing cruiser point of view, is the new Hallberg-Rassy 372, which looks mighty nice to me!

If you absolutely have to have a windshield, I prefer this Chuck Paine design with a full keel to the Hallberg-Rassy 372.

::grin:: It's not the windshield I was looking at, but it *does* make a nifty base for the dodger. I'm surprised by that Paine design's rudder shape though. Scimitar blades are pretty disproven for efficiency. The rest of the boat I'll take as is, where is... Nice eye, Curmudgeon.

Well, Amgine, if you have 450K she's all yours. I imagine the Hallberg-Rassy is in that neighborhood as well.

On the rudder, I think the theory is that if you have a decent gap between the keel and the rudder on a full keeled boat, the rudder efficiency improves because the water flows better, but I'll leave that to the naval architects. I will note in passing that the rudder/keel design on the French & Webb "Custom" is similar to the configurations on Paine's earlier cruising hulls, e.g the Annie and the 40 footers he designed for Cabo Rico.

Heh. I might be able to roust out $45 tonight, but that's about it... ::sigh::

I read a bit about the "inverted" rudder designs, like Brewer's later ones, showing they were not as efficient over-all but maintained high forces at greater heeling angles. The long narrow designs in clear water were much more efficient, of course, but also much more vulnerable. But I have to admit I don't think any of it talked about rudder shapes behind full keels with bottom bearings.

I should probably poke about in my design section this winter and brush up... Too many books, not enough brains.
