Been thinking of Harry bows on the lw hull. The sections forward of the
rudders could be built using the squashed cone idea. If the the centre
section of the lw hull with all its fiddly bits with the rudders and
mast bearings could be built separately and the bows added on later it
could be built in a much smaller space and making it much easier to
work on those fiddly bits. This a fairly natural place to have a change
of curvature and needs a bit of fairing anyway with the rudder
reinforcing. The fact that the hulls could be fair to well above the
water line suggest that hulls could be built using a KSS process with
no cutting or shutting below the waterline.
I was wondering about the problems of bending the halfglassed polyprop
and whether the joins could be made where you want the panels to be
near flat and pre tape them with glass tape. Or possibly weld a strip
of scrim over the joint
