    Decided to wait till fall to paint them. I put them in storage out of the weather for Noe. Figured I should wait till I mock up all three hulls in case something needs changed.

    Very cool! Look forward to checking out the mast plan. Also I was checking out the FB page the other day and had a question, why do new beams mount further back than standard beams on the floats?

    For the updated plans and being demountable forward beam further forard gets it out of the cabin highest point of window it also increases bunk length and aft beam further aft works for its own reasons in the cockpit. The new dagger exits through coach roof and its case transfers mast loads so exit the king post from the cabin and access to fore peak is possible option through what is standard as a watertight bulkhead. Too much to do justice in a post but gives a general idea.
    Cheers

    Clearly makes nothing but sense! I suppose I just looked at the picture wrong, I thought I was seeing stock beam location and amas moved forward say 12". But larger cockpit larger cabin is just plain smart! Haha

    The cabin isn't structurally longer it is just the fact the beam is set almost out of it so gives 2m long bunk from memory without plans in front of me.
    Cockpit larger.

    That puts the beam weight a bit further forward, how much difference is there?

    Ask Sam GDT handled it with the standard floats so it isn't stepping away from what is proven to work. As ours isn't built yet everything is based on yacht design calculations no time to write that book .

    I completely support your work in developing a new version of the basic B24 platform. However I hope you will also give it a new name, as it will no longer be a Crowther Buccaneer 24, the boat which stands as Locks most successful design and is today still carrying his name. :cool:

    OS7
    Totally agree.
    Any thoughts regarding a name OS7, would make sense to keep some link to the original as all of the simple ply updates for modular plans are following what have been done by home builder modification and retrofit able to the B24 original with work.
    The Foam glass new floats for stock B24 with all the modular aspects is for sure a new design inspired by the B24.
    The test mule is also a new beast of 8.5m being a test bed but again B24 and NZ 8.5 class inspired from a cost and build simplicity aspect but with an Internationally acceptable rig size as advised by Nigel Irens and Erick Lerouge, two who have forgotten mor than most know so we definitely took their advice on.
    Erick has an 8.5 cat to his advised international 8.5m spec on the drawing board waiting for our Green light once Trimaran design work is completed so we have sought good advice before entering this design phase.
    Appreciate your input OS7.
    Regards.

    If you want it to be in the family but a different name, just use the best naming tool there is! a Thesaurus .Just a quick look I see excellent choices right here ff the top to name a few.

    Bandit
    Brigand
    Corsair
    Desperado

    And that's just a few!

    Lock used the Buccaneer name after Hedley Nicol, you could continue the tradition and use "Privateer", the name of Hedley's Vagabond mk2. A Privateer is of course something of a legitimate pirate given a letter of marque by a sponsoring country to plunder their enemy.

    Good thought, has a ring to it and fits our self funded development program.
    Privateer 24 by Ezifold.
    Privateer 8.5 by Ezifold.
    Any other thoughts?
