Hi guys,of course, I'm not the one who pretend to come up with something totally new,many people think that the monohull limit has been reached and I'm of the same opinion,there is no reason to go wild with hull forms unless you have gone throug basin tests etc.
I was going to put steps under this hull,following the current trend on sport ribs,but then decided to go the opposite direction,moderate deadrise without steps.
I wanted to work on stability more than on top speed,all the small boats I have seen with steps behaved very unstable.
I would like to see this thing running with a couple of 225/250 outboard,the inboard is a driver's coice,and I like it,if you could hear the SOUND of this animal you'd understand!! the exhaust are open and unsilenced the entire lake knows when we are out for trials eheh,nothing better than a V8 scream for me.
Plus with the same power you have just one leg down = less resistence,of course you also have downs = single prop torque and instability caused by this.
The nose isn't really that upturned, as I mentioned the weight has been kept all the way back and the boat is very inclined back.
And yes,we used the laser cut method to skeep the plug,the mould has been built directly from the 3D files using a method developed by my friends at www.3dwmoulds.com
this way you can come up with a fully frp navigating prototype.
