Mollers, yes a low hours engine, drive leg, trailer, existing hull etc on which to form my own plugs and of course the motivation it gives me seeing just how badly this one was made. All in all I am happy with the way it is going, all I have to do is look at the cost of a new engine and drive leg to tell me I have done the right thing 😊

Well I can tell you all that flipping this up the other way in a workshop on your own is a mission!! my little forklift couldn't lift it on its own so that means that the bare hull as you see in the pic is over 2t !! something tells me that the rest of the forward deck, lockers and engine room box is also soaking wet so I went and got the other forklift to make it slightly easier but still only one of me to drive two forklifts and do the strops etc. Took me the rest of today to do but at least its ready for me to trig up in the morning and start marking out the extensive modifications to be undertaken

Not really much to see today as I have just trigged up the hull and sanded it all back with 240g ready for the modifications to start. My naval architect friend will be here on Friday to take some measurements, do his calculations and help me mark it all up for the more "technical" modifications to the underwater area. The aim is to increase rough weather capability and soften the ride as much as possible, I am not interested in ultimate top speed just higher averages when it gets nice and choppy

Current list of modifications:

Change forefoot
Remove lower forward chines (job partially done already from previous modifications)
Extend hull to 9m+
Increase Beam
Change sheer line
Increase tube diameter
Increase angle of tube flange
"clean up" the lines of the upper bow section as it is quite a "messy" shape currently
Change deck flange profile, angle and size
Alter chine profiles, angle and length at stern
Alter transom angle
Not entirely decided about a planing pad of some sort, I think for our goal it may have more negatives than positives but my friend will have the final say on that.

All of these are modifications that have to be either done to the hull or allowed for at this point before I can take a mould from the new hull design. Will post pictures of the modifications as they are done, any comments or observations on the modifications as we are undertaking them will be welcome. My own expertise is in high speed displacement craft so this is a bit of a baptism of fire for me anyway plenty to keep me busy

That hull does look a bit 'basic'.

It looks as if the builder/designer could only work in flats and straight lines and he whacked on all of the chine rails left in the workshop.

Triggers Broom , I like that for a boat name it might well end up on the stern

Mollers, nothing wrong with basic but it needs to be 100% right if it is basic. When you look closely at things like the the existing chines then you can see that the angles do not change where they need to but just remain the same throughout the length of the hull.

I guess only time will tell if we get the new hull design right

Glad you are enjoying the progress, I know that part of the world quite well and yes it should be ideal for your seas

Modifications start today, simple stuff to begin with and then the more complicated bits can happen next week once the calculations are done. Not exactly sure how much I will get done today as I have a few businesses that demand my attention as well, I will post some pics later today showing what I have managed to get done.
