Shimoda

Around 15-20 years ago, there was a 26 foot sailing boat in Kuala Belait river, Brunei Darussalam named Shimoda. Now in 2017, I have rescue the sailing boat from a swamp and now i am conducting a life saving renovation.

In order to do these, I need to gather as much information as possible on the boat's history in heritage. All I have to work with is LOA, Draft, Beam and couple of photo attached. I do not have any idea of the rig or rigging points. She was built with a single cylinder Volvo panther diesel engine complete with sail drive unit and two blade prop.

I would be be most grateful for any information to help me with the design in order for me to pursue my dream.

Re: Shimoda

Welcome to CF, Cynthia! That's quite the boat project you have there. I can't offer any insights, but would love to hear how you progress.

Re: Shimoda

cynthiazbhi,

Welcome aboard CF.

That's a project boat for sure!

Is there no evidence on the outside of the hull as to where the chainplates were attached? If you can find them, you can probably work out the mast height by making a scale drawing, then projecting the mast up perpendicular to the earth, then the length of the side wire to the chain plate, and voila, you have two congruent triangles, and given the lengths, can work our the degrees of the included angles, and so forth. It's high school geometry, and you can do it. However, let's hope someone comes along and can just give you the numbers, it'll be easier, but given some scrap paper, you can work out most of what you need, I think. [Using graph paper to make scale drawings has helped me on many projects.] Anybody out there should feel free to point out where i have gone wrong, if I have.

Ann

Re: Shimoda

Boat looks to me like a Maxi 77

MAXI 77 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

There's a guy on here I think he is in Singapore? He has one and would be a good source of info, I just can't remember his name. Haven't seen him post much lately. He is an ex-moderator. When I remember I'll post it unless someone beats me to it.

Edit - came to me. Here's your guy. Super knowledgeable. Nice guy. Good luck with the project!

Re: Shimoda

Good luck with your project. I hope you will continue to post pictures of your progress.

I think there are many here who would enjoy seeing you bring this boat back to life and equally as many who would enjoy providing their knowledge and expertise.
