Re: Catastrophe

It seems that you are on the right path but i want to re-iterate what Sprogy said before. It is not as simple as just changing the corners on the transverse frames and you achive the desired result. You should start with the major defining lines (keel, Chine, Sheer, Deck CL) and let them dictate the...

Re: Mast support pole in cabin of Glen-L 17

"Skene's Elements of Yacht Design" has a simple formula for mast design (granted it is a little dated... written in 1904) should be a good starting point for the calculation of the required load. 1.85*[(1.5*RM30)/(b/2)] where RM30 is the righting moment at 30 degrees and b/2 is the lower shroud spre...

Re: Barrelbacked Overniter Build in UK

I am an engineer/architect and have done design work before and believe me we take our old designs and massage them to meet the particular customer's desire. Since you were able to check to see if it is develop-able then I think it is probably a non-issue. I know i will be tuning in to see how this ...

Re: Barrelbacked Overniter Build in UK

I would first like to say that I really like the look of it. the finer or non vertical bow compared to the barrel back and the little deadrise that you have to the transom I would think make her ride smoothly in a rougher chop as the barrel back has no deadrise aft. I have never used DelftShip befor...

My first mate's class has the pleasure of building floats that they get pulled around part of the play yard by the upper class. So being the kind of guy I am I thought i need a fl...

Re: Renegade Redesign

While the deck will help slightly with the structural integrity, I don't see any issue with it. In a Longitudinal bending sense the large aft cockpit there is not any continuous structure for a large portion of the vessel so almost all the bending is supported by the bottom and side structure. Depen...

Re: Pondering some Amigo questions...

Though I dont use Lloyds on a regular basis, I can say that the American Bureau of Shipping does not have a set plate thickness for shell plating. Generally, the rules account for many variables, depth, tankage, location (midbody or ends), desired frame spacing, among a host of others. The ABS guide...

Re: Monaco Restart

I work in Covington M-F but live on the Southshore, so not that far away... I may be able to come over and help with the flip as well if you need hands.

I'm a member of the Bayou Chapter of the ACBS and we hold a lot of events in Mandeville, Madisonville, and Covington. Welcome Aboard! I have purchased the ...
