Computer programming? That makes me laugh. Had a grant to write for government research

Hopeless with computers
Simply tripping on overwhelming happiness.
low but if similar sailor interested he's she's welcome to my homework and build of his her vessel.
I have a 45 foot marina berth rented by another.
Interstate is an older design hull
, masts and engine
to give away. Never launched, no hull
I don't know how rough you've seen outside but been out before when through hole started whale blowing shooting cabin
ceiling. Priority job. Plug
blow hole LoL.
She hasn't any holes.
Modern boaters often prefer to heavy brace rudder
. Leverage to strengthen rudder
. I'd rather a full keel
that braces rudder below waterline. Let her sail herself. This one has skeg. No complaints. That'll strengthen leading edge and an inbetween of hull bracing, deck
bracing rudder system.
She no deck but ketch
masts. Should be able to swap them for 3 masts and mount with halyards.
Cost if anyone else wants project
before I can afford.
$14000 delivered to boat yard. Transportation and crane costing.
$1000 per month. 24 hr access working yard.
Some like (probably most) sloop
, etc because the feel of strength and enjoy ability to sail.
Some like square because of feel of point with full size working throats to deliver pure grunt. Suit something heavy.
Eg horsepower like comparing motorcycle to truck of same horsepower.
I'm liking idea of Junk. I'm ignorant yet guessing could probably add throat eyes and brace horsepower into the breeze. Eg when crewed, giddy up.
Or probably just chill out like normal, short throat from halyard
would have halyard
bracing enough eye stability to simply enjoy a more controllable tack via a bit of grunt. More importantly, reefed or raised with one hand.
To me that looks ideal yet a bit costly because 12 months on hard would equate to 2 days a week work
, holiday weeks, $24000 + materials to install rudder shaft, pilot wheels, hull , bulkheads, tanks
, deck, masts, prop shaft, batteries
to get from slip to marina can borrow from a mates boat for a day.
easy.. find something pretty and sew battens to UV retardant cloth.
Thus. Although I study my best to avoid storm, if caught out dancing with whales, she won't be able to show how much she admires there beasts and show her crew Watt sailboats do to look like whales. LoL.
Easy going too. Someone went through alot of effort and last year or so she's been on market at $1.
Is expensive yet.. how well do others know their vessels?
I gotta talk to a wright first but figuring ballast tanks
as secondary skins. Punctured? Less flow plane on ballast full. Better than a blow hole. Better than a reef. Not 100% if good idea due to service
intervals but a secure locking sizeable threaded port above each tank would enable cleaning
and forget about weight low for another year.
I simply can't imagine bracing a square throat. Rolling the dice, we point with knots or we reduce.
