    Hoi,

    Nice drawing! I'm not a great fan of motor boats but this is a good looking one.

    About your "fit the bill" question, i guess most of us do not have Westlawn course material lying about so don't know what the bill is. I don't know if they allow spreading of their material but i am sure you can give a short description of what the question was.

    I can imagine they are curious about the underwater shape of your design.

    Perhaps it would look even better when the guardrails were a bit lower.

    Helmsman view

    Have my doubts about the helmsman beeing able to view over the cabin top when behind the steering wheel.

    Nice drawing!

    Accomodation looks a bit optimistic for a 28' boat. But I could see this in my buddy's 32 footer. V berth looks like an afterthought.

    As usual seaspark, u are right about the helmsman, and Joe6, yes I think I over do in the accomodation dept. This is a second opinion than what the school give just in case there are other mistake in the drawing.

    Without wanting to do your homework for you....;)
    The head looks a little on the small side. How long is the berth? Needs about 2m. You also wouldn't normall have a navigation station as you've shown on a 28ft sports powerboat. Also, if you lighten up the lineweight on your bow rail it will give a better overall look.
    As far as fitting the bill for OptionOne goes, I'm afraid the answer is no. O-1 has to be trailerable (max 2.5m beam) lightweight and outboard powered....

    BTW - you are correct NOT to show the underwater shape in a profile & arrangement drawing

    I always try and imagine a one week trip or passage with at least two days of miserable weather. It changes the whole design conciept. I worked in a boatyard on the coast of Maine for a summer and a lot of people learned to hate their pretty boats and yearn for something comfortable

    Almost certain the 2006 drawing is hand drafted. The sides aren't mirrored; look at the symmetry of the cockpit ellipse and the pillows. Also notice the pencil baseline for the lettering.

    Aesthetically, the ports would look much better if their centerlines followed a common line (which could be slightly curved). I too have doubts about the ergonomics of the accommodations. The cabin sole appears dangerously wide as well. A person could be easily pitched from one side to the other, without a handhold near by. Always insure a handhold is within the average reach of a person, no matter were they might be down below.
