Santa Lucia open 17'

Post by maumarti »

hi to everybody !
I apologize for my a little correct English.
I am building a small OPEN from me projected, the Santa Lucia.
It is built in wood and glass epoxy, the constructive method is stitch&glue.
It will be powered with an o.b. Johnson 40 hp. two stroke.
It is my first nautical construction; with it I have desired to make practice to face the following one.
The next boat will be a small lobster (25 feet) that I have drawn from myself.
How can I show you the preliminary project?
I have desired to enter the forum to compare me and to ask suggestions to all of you; in Italy I have not met enthusiasm to help and to recommend an amateur boatbuilder :(
Thanks to everybody!

hi Gregg, hi Steve
the next project will be more binding, ambitious and expensive than the Santa Lucia.
I have many doubts, and I would like to talk to experienced people as you.
I am not a naval architect, and I have drawn 25' consulting hundreds of projects found on-line.
Me however I don't have a comfort type technical, sustained by mathematical calculations.
I desire to show you the preliminary plans, so that you can make an evaluation driven by the experience (what I don't have... still)
How can I show you these plans? (AutoCad files)

hey Falcon,

Pretty sweet boat, eh. I can't believe a guy that can build like that would bother to ask Steve or I any questions.
How's your project coming along? I've been off the net for a month, (the problem with living in the third world); and haven't heard, have you launched yet? I know you must be close.
I had hopes of taking a few slow years to turn my pile of ply into a pretty boat; but the army isn't going to let me take that long. I will hopefully be in the water by about December.


Good luck,

Send Pics.

You do some beautiful carpentry work.

Don't worry about your english on this forum. Usually we can figure out what is being ask and if we cannot we will ask.

I think in your case we could learn a lot from you.

Sorry Falcon,

I'm just a contractor, I was navy. My Pop was a thirty year Army / Green Beret; and a very good commercial fisherman. Who taught me to love fishing and boats. I don't get the time (or have the skills), that some of you artists do. But, She must be gonna float; for she doesn't let out the rain.

good luck,

kind friends
I have created on my website a section devoted to the small Lobster that I desire to build.

http://www.mauriziomartinucci.com/progetti.htm

I desire a lot one opinion of yours on it!!! :wink:
I would like to powered it with an o.b. 90hp (Tohatsu TLDI)
It will be very simpler and economic than to an i.b.
Do you think that it will be enough to plane?
cordially I thank

Since I have no experience building a boat that big (barely any experience building a small boat!) I don't think you would want advice from me...

All I can say is that would be a beautful boat, and I can't wait to see pictures!

Also, how did you make that scale model...Did you loft it from plans? My next boat might just be a scratch built model...

At the opening page look on the left menu bar. Check the "How Fast" button. I have not study the lobster boat plans. But, I think it is at least a semi-planning hull. In which case, it should be fine with a 90 hp.
