    bucket list capable cruiser. Up the In side passage to SE Alaska, great loop cruiser. 80 up diesel, 2.5:1 reduction. High chine sharpie wedge with naca derived box keel aka Hawaiin sampan with box keel and fat stern. Stitch and glue construction. Foam core super structure.

    Whtcha think. I'm thinking 26-28ft. 5000lbs, 20mph top. Stiffening up at 12. Sharp fine entryreaching out fast as it goes aft.

    Hi,

    Are you looking for this boat to be designed so you can build it?

    I am a naval architect currently in Canada and looking for a project to keep me busy for a short period. Also looking to build a new 38 ft cruising sloop

    if you want to talk a bit more about it then message me or i can give you my skype and we can talk boats!

    I take it "80 up diesel" is unicorn power as opposed to horsepower.
    Very fitting for West Coast. Wondering what the conversion formula is? ;-)

    Nevermind. It's going to be a marriage of a pacific dory to a husky version of Chappell's Waterman. My father and uncles discussions and builds of a diamond bottom semiplaning hull sunk in. . 1/2 sides,1" bottom, frames 12" OC. The back 60% WLL of the keelson will be dead straight as will be the chine heights. It will be fast enough downhill when needed. I have a Isuzu db1 for the project so it's overpowered for flat water but it will be fine chugging up rollers. On the west coast we buck a chop and rollers out and surf in. I may still run out to the Long Hole in rough weather. The profile will be similar to the Redwing. Beam to length about 3.23 depending which side of the line I cut. The length will be what I can get out of three sheets of ply for the sides.
    The designer builder and owner wear the same shirt. I don't foresee any conflicts there.

    JM said he had noodled a version of the Waterman along modern lines. I'd be curious what that looks like.

    Thanks to Weston Farmer, Chappell, Jacques M., Sam Devlin, Tracy Obrien and the four centuries of family boat building history at my disposal.

    Carry on :) I have molds to build, plywood to cut, seams to tape and all the fun stuff.

    Which one brews the coffee?

    Would you ever put up a small sail on any of these trips?
    I've always liked the look of the St. Pierre Dory. Not sure how it would fit it on the left coast. :)
    I think these are both Bob Payton interpretations...

    big dory

    Not many around here. Nexus has a local example. A staysail is an option.
