Build 120' outrigger sailboat ...

KC7CC from Tucson Arizona , Im making my tools , 350 amp MIG

hydraulic forging hammers , plasma cutters , plate bending

posts , stays , hydraulic forcers , but ive run out of time ...

Im 69 YO and need help ,

I have all the materials and engines , etc . but need

help to start the mid section ,

Engines are low compression Honda 4 cylinder , for the

much higher economy , over diesels , which have MUCH higher

pumping losses , Located in a bulge on right side of hull , for

cargo loading space . Masts are stressed steel , "Y" , and rotate

at base , fall fwd for storage .

Hull is welded to structure , at spaced intervals so repair is

faster . below floor is hermetic .

Long ago , when boats size was only 45 foot , the float could be

flooded , the boat rolled for hull maintainance .

Is there anyone interested in building steel sailboats ?

Welcome aboard. Another option, if you have no luck here, you could try your local Lions club or even the Boy Scouts to help out.
Anyways, good luck and welcome.

Re: Build 120' outrigger sailboat ...

you may want to find a local scrap yard.
your build sounds so far out of shape it will be a death trap.
and gasoline engines have less pumping loss? you really have no idea huh?
