    Who is the designer? Considering the displacement is not possible (with average construction and equipment) and the ballast a joke, it's probably best forgotten. Le Forestier's Jonque 14.15 is similar(slightly larger) and has been built. Her design displacement is 28,000 pounds with 10,000 pounds of ballast.

    If you calculate that the average submerged dimensions are 30 length, 11 beam and 2 draft, that is 836 cubic feet. Multiply by 62lb and the displacement is about 52000lb
