Re: How Crazy is it to get your boat LONGER ?

It would be foolhardy in the extreme to undertake this project without the help of a naval architect, if you can find one willing.

Wally 143' provides a great version for a long transom...

Elegant, sleek, functional, UNTRADITIONAL as to many of the comments above... :-)

No connection that I can see between the Wally 143' and your plan except the water they float in.

Old boats with long counter sterns are beautiful too but without those mizzens they'd look awkward and unbalanced IMO.





Maybe paying somebody with CAD skills to make a digital 3D rendering of your design would let you see what some of us see - and save your beautiful boat from becoming a laughing stock.

I honestly think if you do actually build it you'll immediately want to take an axe to it but - it's your money

Who needs 'cad skills' when you can get a (rough) idea with paint...

A good try but in 3D it would be obvious that you'd cheated a bit at the sheer line. Not fair.

Deleted the rest, think I might be getting a bit grumpy in my dotage. Meh.

Dear All, the Wally 143' came quite at a surprise, in providing a brilliant solution with the bulkheads tapering off towards stern!

It provides discontinuity at deck level, a sleek profile, a lower platform, a dismissed stern area..... it is Also easier to work out in joining the two parts....

My boat is a late IOR derived design, not too pinched astern, as final Beam is 10'.

Were it with a GOOSE stern, by when LWL was rated, and an old classic, I would not dare changing it at all...

Jim...Thanks!!! For your excellent work :-)
