Thank you everybody for your replies. Much appreciated. I do have a good bit of boat building experiance but was just really confused about the design of the boat. The boat looks to be built better than most boats Ive worked on. It has just been neglected for way to long. Im thinking if boat was restored it would be a vary strong/wet boat for the ocean. Fiberglass
is over and inch thick and a pretty big keel
for the size of the boat. Boat has a total of nine bulk heads all inch thick mahogany. 4 of them which are true bulk heads glassed in 360 degrees to the inside of the boat. Boat also has 6 massive fiberglass stringers from bow to stern. I had to remove three bulk heads due to rot
but replacing bulk heads is no big deal in this boat since it is striped out. Don't really plane on putting much inside the boat but a couple of bunks to sleep in. The bottom of this boat is vary flat and looks fast. Boat has a huge rig and lots of draft
. Any boat builders out there that have and comments on the design of this boat and possible performance??????? Has anybody heard of people incapsulating a keel
in stainless steel
? the out part of this keel is all stainless and not sure if the entire keel is or not. Thanks for the help everybody. This is just a weird boat and trying to get the communities input.
