    Hello Zolty,

    Nice forum feature: "alert" ....

    I just found your post in that old thread, where I presented the Coastline Flyer. Are you interested in the design?

    During the model making I went on for a new job (a restoration project of a 1928 Gaff Ketch) and I had a friend that asked for a raid-dinghy design, which I did and was built. For the CF6.5 there was no real interest and so it went into oblivion.

    I did'nt continued to work on it, but I would not hesitate to pull it out of my archive. At least we can chat about it and see what will happen.

    Best Regards, Michel

    Hi Zolty,
    draft would be 1.6m max. but as Iam sailing in the tidal areas of the North Sea Coast, the ability of flat water sailing is important. So, a lifting keel is the solution. I would say fixing the keel at 1.0m draft to allow limited sailing and full up of. 0.35m for drying out on a sandbar. Keelballast is around 200kg and a temporary crane will lift it up.

    Have fun, Michel
