TEOTWAWKI Boat

OK, the fishier boxy catamaran is as follows, roughly:

6' wide assembled (it is carried in 5 sections, 2 hulls, 1 mid deck, one engine mounting crossbeam and one forward crossbeam).

Hulls each measure 114 in. (290 cm) long by 15 in. (38 cm) high by 22 in. (55.8 cm) wide.

FRE on 1/4 in. (6mm) plywood stitch and glue construction.

2 engine mounts designed are based on 15" or 20" outboard leg.

Pictures to follow.

Hull walls are vertical and all external hull curves have a 72" radius. Spray rails will be added later.

I will post photos of progress and any modifications after construction begins.

I call it a fishy boxier catamaran.

Name to be determined later.

Your post says 114 feet long?--is that a typo.

along the same lines is 20 HP engines a typo.

I know --it was 11.4 meters with 200HP.

2 hash marks means inches not feet. 20" is length of outboard motor leg. I plan on getting a motor size from 5 hp up to 15 hp.

I understood everything fine.

Looks good.

What's your reserve buoyancy or water line?

Water line at rest estimated be about 4 in. above chine when level. Loaded boat will weigh (guessing now) 700 lbs. I haven't worked out exact weights.

Crew 400 lbs. approx. (less if diet works)
Boat 150 lbs. approx.
Motor 100 lbs. approx.
Gear and consumables 50 lbs. approx.

This boat is similar to the first one I built and it performed very well for me 41 years ago. That boat was 12 inches (3 less) high, 6 feet wide but only 8 feet (1.5 less) long. It held 2 adults and had a 5 hp motor. That one wasn't even glassed, just screwed together.

Resting, about 11 inches if hull is level. Coaming may be added which will enhance free-board.

It depends on whether he takes 2 of each animal, or whether 7 of some creatures are required.
