-Makes a lot of sense to me. It wouldn't work at any less in length.
Are those a series of steps going up to the cabin top?. That seems a
good place to sit and enjoy the breeze and gain a little height for
checking for shoaling water. Having the deck shape at that angle means
that the tramps are under the sails when caught aback and windage when
working to ww is minimised. Area under the floor of the cabin can be
used for heavy storage such as water, batteries, anchor chain. Not
sure of why the little cutouts near the foot of the lw bunks. Moveable
seats are not something that is used much on boats for good reason. It
may be necessary to find a way to anchor them. The set up means a
knuckle would be of no use and allows a very simple construction I
would have thought a slightly larger radius for the edges would have
reduced drag, without taking away from safety or ease of building. I
like the propulsion on rudders. How do the batteries charge?
regeneration under sail? solar? generator? Don't think it would win a
beauty contest judged by Dave, but is rather charming in its no
nonsense Tubby the Tugboat sort of way. Some hatches and portholes on
lw hull would make it prettier, and I am assuming you would have to
have something like this with the accommodation in them.
Can't see any intrinsic problems with the concept. It allows easy
construction on the floor without having to be overfine with tolerances
Congratulations to all concerned
