Good Morning JW

Camber just means putting some curvature into the deadrise angle - rather than going straight line. Various camber ratio's are used depending on what you are trying to achieve etc.

The amount of curvature will be much more at one end of the curve than the other. Much along the lines of many decks where you often hear of deck camber - so that the deck is flat in the centre but then drops away towards the deck edge.

Will probably be at the builders of the Ali RIB next week so will try to get some shots of it then.

Thanks Adam, that's what I guessed you meant.

I don't quite understand the description of the plating being part of the surface development of a cone. I do understand surface developments, conic sections etc. How'd you like to draw a wee pic. and post it? Ta.

latest shot - actually taken prior to Easter. Progress has slowed a bit as paying jobs have taken over at the builders.

Should have photo's with hull plating in place soon.

Actually looking to carry out other projects with my company designing and with this builder in Aluminium. May not be stepped hulled RIB's - but it is a pretty good starting point to show level of workmanship.

Hi Bogi

Nice easy (relatively) one for me this time - I'm just the designer! The boat is being built by Frank McLean for himself and to promote his own business.

Looking forward to seeing it on the water too. Although obviously a performance hull it is still intended to be a good all round boat and is not full on race boat lines.

Adam

PS still working on those F3 prices - but recently we have changed laminators and tube manufacturers - so a few things still to consider.

Adam,

Do you have any up to date pics of this RIB? Is she afloat, if so how does she compare to your Aramid demo boat?

Hope the new opti is running well.

Cheers

Tim
