    I cant find any rules for hull and construction scantlings that covers 50kn speed for wood/epoxy powerboat. Anyone had a solution?

    Yes, if you are willing to pay for the engineering calculations.

    Toplana,

    None of the above will address a speed of 50 knots. At this speed it is much better to go to first principals and calculate loads and then size scantlings accordingly. A good and current guide is ISO 12215-5 2007 Small Craft - Hull construction and scantlings - Design pressures, design stresses, scantling determination.

    This standard covers vessels up to 24 meters and any speed. It includes an excellent section on modern cold-molded construction with example.
