Hello. What is it about the ocean? Sometimes I look at it the way a video game
captivates party go'ers. It draws you in. For as long as I can remember I have loved the ocean. Fishing
, swiming, diving
, exploring. It didn't matter really. I just loved it. This is my first post and I have joined primarily to learn however, I do have a sail boat construction related question. Several people on my end are in on this thread.
We are trying to find a way to construct a covered "dock" that has a boat/tender birth/bay at the stern of a 50 foot sail boat. Think garage.
We have a design. A crude description would be an aluminium dock
that sticks out the back that has a birth or 2 with dock
wraping around one or two tenders. This dock is covered in a fiberglass
or aluminium roof and sides. The back has two doors that are partially submerged that swing open to let the tender/s out. Small boat could have a very small birth where as a large boat could have two or three that could accomadate a work bench ,storage, jet skies and a ramp
and so on.
That was the description of what it is that we are designing. The real question is .....How much would such an addition change the way in which the boat would sail normally?
I know long winded. Thanks Acoron
