Squirt centre of buoyancy.

Postby driver06 » Sun Nov 23, 2014 9:27 am

I am planning to build a 10 ft. squirt with a 15hp two stroke outboard. Does anybody know the position of the center of buoyancy in normal for and aft trim, please? John.

Well, I got no replies to that one, even Glen L said they could not say (I thought the designer had to consider the position of the center of buoyancy).

So, I will try a different way. Hands up, please of any body who has moved the cockpit more than 6 inches forward from the plans. What engine do you have and how is the fore and aft trim, please?

It seems there is advice on just about everything else. Best forum I have ever seen. Thanks.

John.

Sorry. I just can't answer this one. There are just too many variables in a boat this size. It's just not that sensitive on a larger boat.
