New Member looking for plans

Hello everybody,

We are interested in obtaining plans for a 5 to 7 meter RIB design. We just recently opened a foam cutting / CNC business with a 6 x 4 x 2 meter five axis, high speed router. We are looking for new experimental projects that will give us experience working with foam. Our shop is in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Once the hull is finished, we would need to purchase a kit to finish out the boat. Please let me know if there is a good source for boat plans or if anyone is looking to do some kind of joint venture. Our main objective is to gain experience and add to our portfolio.

We love boating and own a World Cat 266 which we use here on the San Francisco Bay and beyond.

Check at https://boatbuildercentral.com

The guy that owns it and designs the boats has decades of boat design experience with some big names in boating. Very knowledgeable. You might get in touch with him, Jacques. A whole boat would be cool but if you could make one off molds for things like hatches and wells and such that would be a boon to the DIYer.

Thank you for the great feedback. We checked out the aluminum designs are are excited about a few of the possibilities. I'll try to update where it leads.
