Stern cabin - too odd on small boats?

    Claus,
    die Zeit die Du damit verschwendet hast eine unsinnige Idee zu verfolgen, hättest Du besser umgesetzt, ein geeignetes Boot zu finden.

    the time you wasted to follow a stupid idea, you would have better spent finding a boat to suit your needs.

    Doug,
    I have it a bit hard to see a Fisher ms in your design, sorry.

    Regards
    Richard

    Thats ok, Apex. The wood strips on the side and the angle of the front of the cabin are similar. I recessed the topsides to allow the teak to appear recessed -its not exact but with the two boats next to each other you may see a similarity.

    Richard,

    you think a stern cabin on a small boat is a 'stupid idea', and any thought about it a 'waste of time'?

    Well, I think you are wrong.

    And BTW I do have a boat suiting my needs, it is in the 'Wooden Boat Small Boats 2010'. Only, it does not have a rowable stern cabin yet.

    Regards,
    Claus

    Further,
    take a look.

    This IS a stern cabin sailer.
    I think the guy who designed it has not wasted his time, he did an excellent job:

    The Northsea 27 is the smallest production sailboat I know about with a aft cabin. The owners I have spoken with like the design.

    Larger by a good measure than you perhaps are referring to @ 25' waterline.

    Sorry, I do´nt see a aft cabin. And I doubt the 20 ft too!
    But if there is one, why do´nt you just copy it?


    Doug
    of course there are similarities.
    btw. I like the Fishers very much, a perfect styling (and good boats too)

    nice boat, but as you mentioned, a bit bigger. And I think that is about the min. size for a aft cabin.

    Ah, and three feet are almost one meter. Thats not much on my passagemaker but a lot on such a vessel.

    Heather is about the smallest true aft pilothouse manageable. I think she's either 14' or 16'?

    That's more like 22' or 23'. Compare to the size of the people standing on the dock
