Workboat Show

If you ever find yourself in New Orleans after Thanksgiving I highly recommend the International Workboat Show. Lots of cool vendors and very interesting boats on display.

Re: Bolero Build

For the sheer you said that you used the NURBs trough the points defined by the transverse frames or did you use the control point NURBs? i am sure you know but the control point NURBs will give you a fairer curve generally, conversely since the data you have (Body Plan) you are forced to use those ...

Re: CNC Conversion

I will agree with sproggy on this one as well. CNC is a great tool to have but in the end the amount of work that will be done with the CNC where absolute precision is required is not there. In shipbuilding there is a term called mold lines. The mold line is the exact line of the ship at an infinite...

Re: Barrelback Modifications

I think the tumblehome curved transom would look cool. Definitely will add to the complexity, lots of time in the thinking chair though from the rough model i threw together below I agree with Matt, it looks gorgeous!

Re: Jambalaya Recipe

Louisiana steak and potatoes. You can find this at every festival, parade, ect. Always someone cooking it up and selling it at a football game. Nothing better when the weather gets cool (60s :lol: ) In the river parishes a favorite variation is to make pastalaya (use spaghetti vs rice). Going to hav...

Re: Monaco Restart

Chris, I think I saw you driving north on 190 today by the chevy dealer as I was heading south from work. I can honestly say that she is even more amazing out in the sunlight and as close to "in person" as you can be when on the other side of the neutral ground. Have to say it again. Great job!

Re: Coastal Cruiser vs. True Grit

One of the chief reasons for the canted windows like you mentioned are for increased visibility. The line of sight to areas close to the vessel hull is increased if you are able to lean over the console and see the bow or sides of the vessel where your vision would have been obstructed/reduced by ve...

Re: What do call this type of sheer?

5387157_20180423090011907_1_LARGE.jpg FWIW, In the image above note the sheer line down turns and abruptly ends and creates a discontinuity (sharp point) at the bumper as described by Jarrett Bay Boat Works. I would consider this a broken sheer as the line has the discontinuity. In the link given b...

Re: What do call this type of sheer?

It would still be called a sheer. Sheer is just the line that separates the hull side from the main deck. This sheer in particular has an inflection point where the sheer goes from a convex to concave (or Vice Versa). This does not mean that the sheer is not fair. FWIW: Capture.JPG Take the image of...

Really looking forward to seeing it and you in the water.
