Re: New design build Ally 40 footer

Good morning Snow PetreL AND ALL
lI can see that you are down in Tasmania do you think I shouldFILL water tanks with glycol to stop them freezing
Yes I think I have A HARD dodger is essential are not so difficult to build I would like to sorce all the windows from
Holland but I have no idea where
I have a registered Dutch naval architect working on the keel with me and the rig
I have decided this to scale the beam up 1.05
It is not too much just a
couple of hundred
millimetres
Of course I know of Skips career dating back
To the days of the Whitbread race
The video was interesting I'm a great believer in keeping the weight out of the end of the boat
One thing I do know about and how essential good ground tackle is for my firs tboat I built a 100 lb fisherman type s it was made of 2 inch solid bar with 1 inch plate flukes and a 1 inch stock are some places in the Pacific that you just cannot get any other anchor to hold on a coral bottom that happened to us in a place called Ouvea
Lagoon
With all our chain out and then 80 lb danforth
We still dragged we could not stop the boat from dragging spend a horrible night anyway back to work on the boat once again sorry for the typos I have to dictate this and then copy and paste it into the browser have a good day

Re: New design build Ally 40 footer

On water tankage, it occurred to me that it would be best to keep the tanks away from the skin of the ship as much as possible, above the waterline. Especially if she's to be a boat designed to operate in colder climates. Otherwise you'll continually have to deal with your drinking water being frozen, & the internal ice beating up the tanks. Something which I picked up from Snowpetrel's blog. And he's also got some good stuff on hard dodgers. Again, an essential feature in any serious sailing yacht. Particularly for those that operate in the proposed latitudes.[/QUOTE]
here is a hard dodger i put on CAPE PROVIDENCE

Re: New design build Ally 40 footer

Anne you mentioned why I did not use Kubota well I have experience with Kubota tractors and I must say they are incredibly reliable they just keep plugging on housands of hours after thousands of hours I had experienced only with the 3 cylinder model unfortunately people like to see and brand name of marine diesel such as Yanmar Cummins Volvo Scania etc but I most certainly will look at it can you point me in to a source

Re: New design build Ally 40 footer

Beta and Nanni are both kubota based marine engines with a good rep. Beta seams to have a very enlightened policy of providing direct part numbers for the equavalent industral base engine rather than deliberately trying to hide the info.
