    I'm a new member and I thought it proper that my first post is an introduction. Don't worry, it'll be short...

    I live in the archipelago outside Stockholm in Sweden where I have small company that's mainly about transportation on water with my two boats.

    Boat one is an eight meter aluminum boat made by Swedish company Broson with a Volvo Penta diesel and outdrive. 26 knot cruise and 35 on top.

    Boat two is made in Finland, a Capo, and she's also aluminum but with a keel cooled Mermaid Turbo Plus (Ford) and shaft. 18 knot cruise and 24 max. She's also built for ice, ten centimeters (four inches) of solid ice is about max.

    I found this place because I'm about to build a new boat and I'm looking to make the best possible design to meet my wishes and demands.

    Welcome. The first step is to make a list of the Statement of Requirements (SOR). The second is to make a decision matrix, where each item has a weight based on its importance for the overall design. Those two will drive the design.

    The OP's "wishes and demands" need elaboration.

    Welcome to the forum Magnus!

    Look forward to seeing your new boat come to life.

    Thread Note: the lengthy discussion which evolved regarding the idea of a decision matrix has now been split to its own thread at The use of a decision matrix to prioritize SOR items in the boat design process https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/the-use-and-usefulness-of-a-decision-matrix-to-prioritize-sor-items-in-the-boat-design-process.59548/

    And in case anyone missed the other thread where more detailed discussion on Mangus' project should take place, here is that link again too: Planning a workboat build https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/planning-a-workboat-build.59526/
