Now, Steady, what I really want to see is the thread that shows all the best ways to put a dodger on a flush deck boat!

Stay tuned!

I have a Flush Deck Boat coming up that has:

1. Hard Dodger
2. Flush Deck
3. Free Standing Masts
4. Shallow Draft
5. Cold Moulded
6. Junk Rigged

A Sextuple Boat!

And it is one of my favorite boats. With nice video. More later, stay tuned!

Re: Flush Deck Boats Illustrated Guide

On the whole, I like flush decks.

BUT

I hardly ever like down below of small flush decked boats as these seem to be coffin-like inside. So PLS for me only +35' boats apply. Better yet 40' or longer.

My other half like is that some cruising boats were built with flush decks and nothing up there to brace my foot on when I go forward on a wet deck and the boat is heeled (as it may be beating, e.g.)

Otherwise I like them a lot and many of my fave boats are flush decked. Our own boat somehow is not.

So PLS keep them posted as they are a pleasure to look at.

BTW posting image attributions is a fine habit, do stick with it unless you own the copyright.

Cheers,
b.

The Swanson 42 is a pretty good example... IMHO. For those US cousins, there may be one on your side of the pond, but the bulk of them are in Australia or the South Pacific these days.

Re: Flush Deck Boats Illustrated Guide

Had a 1970 Columbia 43 for 9 years, with a flush deck and a bubble shaped short house over the companionway. There was a whole series of these flush deck types designed by Bill Tripp (Sr) ranging in size up and down from the 43. Loved the high freeboard, close to 7' headroom, and the huge practical interior. We once sailed with 3 watches of 6 people each, and 6 were on deck, 6 were cooking eating and cleaning up, and 6 were sleeping, and no one interfered with anyone else, and nothing had to be converted.

Re: Flush Deck Boats Illustrated Guide

FD Boat CORBIN 39
The following information was derived from Blue water Boats <http://bluewaterboats.org/corbin-39/>





In Brief

In 1977 Marius Corbin commissioned Robert Dufour of Montreal, Quebec to design him a sailboat based on a one-off 39-foot Dufour design named Harmonie. Mr. Corbin asked Mr. Dufour to increase the freeboard and flush the deck. In 1979, the first Corbin 39 came out of the resulting mold, and the Canadian manufacturer produced 129 Corbins until 1982. Most were sold as kits in varying degrees of completion. In 1982, a fire destroyed the deck molds, but because of continued strong demand, they decided to update the molds and continue production. The last Corbin 39 produced, hull number 199, was launched in 1990.
The Corbin 39 is a double ender in the classic Scandinavian lineage of serious offshore cruisers like the Westsail 32. She features a long fin keel of 6′ draft, high freeboard, and a blunt bow. Corbin produced various deck molds including flush, pilot, center cockpit, and aft cockpit variations.
Corbins have have an impressive 11 layer schedule of mat and roving with a 16mm Airex core. The deck is a 3/4″ core of marine grade mahogany early on but later Airex foam. The ballast is 9,000 pounds lead encapsulated with extra layers of fiberglass around the keel for protection. Most spars are by Everett Bastet of E.B. Spars Inc. in Quebec. Early ones had either a 46′ single spreader main or a 51′ turbo charged double spreader. Later most had 49′ double spreader rigs. All rigs are deck stepped.
Corbins with their fin keel and skeg rudder combination are better sailing than their 26,000 pounds displacement might suggest. They are meant as Marius Corbin writes to take someone, “safely and comfortably around the world…We get postcards from all over the world…what better recommendation is there for a strong and seaworthy vessel.” The cutter rig with a reefed main is a safe and seaworthy combination.
Specifications

LOA: 41′ 6″
LWL: 32′ 0″
Beam: 12′ 1″
Draft: 5′ 6″
Displacement: 22,800 lbs
Ballast: 9,000 lbs
Sail Area: 822 sqft
Designer: Robert Dufour
Year Introduced: 1979 – 1990
Builder: Corbin Yachts (Quebec, Canada)
Buyers Notes

Of the 199 hulls, 184 were owner finished. These owner finished hulls were shipped in varying degrees of completion out of the Corbin yard. In 1982, a fire destroyed the molds. Post-1982 Corbins have larger cockpits and a further forward mast step to lessen weather helm. Corbin 39’s with bowsprits also sail more balanced. Look for a Corbin 39 with a double spreader spar.

Re: Flush Deck Boats Illustrated Guide

Surprised you didn't post a picture of your Medallist! One of the best looking boats ever designed in my opinion.

Designed by Bill Tripp Jr. in 1962.
