    I am a student at the University of Plymouth and my final year project is to design a 4 meter collapsable / folding boat. This boat is required to be motored, rowed and sailed, seat 4 adults and have positive bouyancy. I am aware of a few boat designs around such as Seahopper, Clamboat and Porta-boat.
    If anyone could help point me in the right direction in terms of boat design information, explaining what a good boat design is, points to consider etc etc.
    This would be of great help.

    Many thanks
