    I'll take a wild guess as to what that thing is......Maybe a scow bowed ferry with an odd skeg at the front. The pictures do not show the profile very well but it looks like the transom might be immersed somewhat because there seems to be no rocker..........A planeing type ferry??? No telling what all that superstructure is all about. One does wonder what the designer was aiming at.

    Take the skeg off the front, reduce the size to less than 10 meters, and we could have an inland lakes sailing scow. A little bit like an A scow or an E scow.

    Yes, my guess is a fast coastal ferry.

    Here is a full build up in service. But still what are pros and cons of this hull. Sheer amount of planned hull would have made it a diesel guzzler.

    Not really a planner, but still relatively fast. The cg is a bit high, hope everyone does not go on one side. And of course they put the cargo on top. Must be a bear to manuver on windy days.

    Overcrowded with this weird hull

    Talk about cg of the boat, here is a typical view of the ferries.

    I know them from Sadarghat Port, many decades ago, they don't call them ships or boats but launches.

    I don't know about the pros and cons of this hull type in the given circumstances, and the name of the hull type, but it wasn't difficult to find an acident . . :(

    Here while she's being lifted and the counted number of deaths is increasing . . :(
    The BBC says ‘‘death roll rises to 72’’, and Wikipedia says ‘‘killing at least 56 people’’.

    I don't know the death count of the MV Coco-4 official investigation, but it's clear no one knows the exact number since the number of overcrowded passengers was unknown. It could be that only the retrieved bodies are officially counted.


    Here some basic regional depth info (which I didn't check for this post) where the pictured launches have to deal with.

    Here's a view at: traditional Bangladeshi passenger river boats on the river Buriganga near the Sadarghat Boat Terminal.

    I hope this post contains some info for the experts to determine the qualities of these launches in the given circumstances.

    Big advantage is shallow draft. Looks like a river boat. Would look great with a paddle wheel on the back!

    Guess I was right... these obviously should not be allowed, they are people killers. Make them wider and two stories max.

    That would be too modern, some still live in the era of the side wheelers there . . . :rolleyes:

    I think the above side wheeler makes your point clear, being wider(?) and two stories high she still lives a full service life for about a century now . . :idea:

    A lot of sand blasting, several layers of paint... a nice steam punk theme (if you know what I mean) ... they might actually make a cool home

    Got my own oversized boat to fix... and I think mine is more seaworthy. But I like the design of the sidewheeler, has soul if not sleekness. I build stuff in VR and perhaps i will build one there. Give it Capt. Nemo look.

    When I redo the interior of my boat I may do the same thing just to be different.
