Awesome work! Love the lines, and what's more is that when you get through with the scaffolding, you can use the material for your A-Frame paravane system!

Actually, I had to look it up. My focus was on the boobies as well.

Thanks mate but I can't take all the credit. I get my inspiration and design ideas from pictures I see online from companies like Riviera and alike. They are the real designers. I'm just a copy cat lol

Looking at your post (#2125 ), I at first think the picture is centered just forward of the pilot house but when I look at the keel, my mind wants to say I'm standing straight off from the prop/rudder area.

It will all come together for me after the launch as those many first day photos come online. Enough of this, I'll let you get back to the Axe.

G'day Frank.
Where have I lost ya mate..?
Is there something wrong with the shape?

Still really like the wheelhouse windows and the sheer break being in that position is good too.

Overall a very nice looking boat.

G'day mate.
Thanks for the feedback, however I'm not conversant with boat builder talk so have no idea what a sheer break is etc.

Is that the straight angled bit at the back that is the same angle as the transom fins?

Where would you put the post mate? I'm still tossing up whether or not I should put some in or not.

Appreciate your help and advice mate.

Thanks again..!!

Actually, just to enter into a bit of bird-brained argument, I immediately thought Matt's 'wrens' were actually these things...sorry RTF...

Bing Images


...which drive us spare at our marina because they love to perch and poo in every nice out-of-the-weather place they can find on your boat. I have those self-adhesive backed brush-edged door draft stoppers stuck upside down on anything that might provide them an edge to try and stop this fouling. It is working in most places...I think...
Better plan for this possibility Matt. Just sayin'...
I admit they are not identical, but maybe they are a West Australian strain. Whatever those birds were anyway, once the boat is moored, there will be bird roosting poo problems...take friendly warning...

Matt,
The sheer is the line that is the gunwale viewed from the side. Some swoop up a lot in the bow and others (like speedboats) hook down so the helmsman can see where he's going. Some are straight. Your sheer line is not continious. There is a break in the sheer line. A stepped or broken sheer accommodates the difference in the higher fwd deck and the frequently much lower after decks. In a way you have two sheer lines ... basically straight. For years Chris Craft had a broken sheer line that hooked down comming from the bow. It was a visual brand name identy feature that was featured more or less throught the line. A broken sheer makes the boat look shorter and a straight sheer makes the boat look longer. The angular lines of your fwd windows sorta match the angular lines formed by the "broken" sheer line. Nice marriage. I like it.

Put the posts (one on each side) considering the following;
Where there's structure to attach to.
Where activities like comming aboard and handling mooring lines aren't encumbered by the posts. Comming aboard may be easier with the post than without it. Putting canvas around the aft cockpit may be easier w the posts.
Having a "rake" or slant that mimics another prominent line like the back of the cabin. Or like vertical lines of many side windows, other stanchions or even the transom.

But it's purpose is structural so primarily it should just support the cabin roof. Then it's more or less what you like. The visual support of the post may make the boat look "correct" and the lack of a post may in a small way may make the roof look like it may break off. If my cabin roof extended all the way aft w no visual support it would look really odd and somewhat "visually upsetting".

Along with Peter B,I`m unpersuaded they are pardalotes, and not swallows.
But I get the connection between boobies, swallows, and swallowing.
