At least you will not need an anchor

Re: Steel or Aluminum

I cant understand why people dont consider female once of moulds and build from fibreglass. Yes you cant get compound curves, but you can do as much as you can with the radius chine method.

Re: Steel or Aluminum

Here's another one for your viewing pleasure.

Took ten years, but it was just a couple of girls.

The Big Sailboat Project

All joking aside, folks that take on these projects amaze me. Make me feel like a wimp.

That doesn't sound out of line. I spent a lot of cruising time on a 50' steel mono-hull that weighed in around 32 tons. The 64' steel mon-hull that I cruised on was around 35 tons, so dead on after you subtract some for each hull and then add in the rest.

Your comment about the weight makes me think of something out of the movie Waterworld, though! Be sure to leave room for the gun-mounts.

It has been many months now since this post. I read all of the posts to the end.

I am sincerely curious about the outcome.

Scoobert, did you build the boat in steel? Is it finished?

How did the solar work?

Re: Steel or Aluminum

Sadly, Scoobert has left the building. You can find him if you Google 'Union Pacific'. He is a regular at a different forum, of which we may not speak.
