Why not just extend to whole stern? All one would need to do is build a "wall" around that big "stern platform" and you'd have a nice SD boat.

Looks liken the Menorquin as seen in the first pic on post #76 is not very heavy. Seeing one in the water you'd think she'd be 3' deep but this one looks half that. Interestingly she's a twin screw w a Claw anchor. Are Claws popular in Europe?

My thoughts too: easy to extend the transom backwards and make it look like its been designed by a NA rather than 'bodged' as an after -thought.

Most people have delta type anchors on older models, but many now swear by the new spade type with roll bar...

Me, I use a concrete block!

My understanding is that the first menorquins were small double enders that performed admirably but were slow. At some point they attached a flat platform onto the stern and magic happened - they were now fast. Llaut I think is the term applied to this new design.
Anyway, staying true to their origins they incorporated this unique design into all future products. Tradition is strong sometimes.

Conrad,
That's probably the case but it looks way to bastardized to me to be considered a design "true to her origins". What would you think if I did that to my Willard?

I think, Eric, that the stern would then match your humongous anchor....

Kidding of course. Please don't do such a thing, even though I'm a real fan of stern platforms for dinghy access etc.

Half agree. I think if the transom was squared off and the stern platform kept, you would have a very handsome vessel.

And in today's world, get rid of all of that wood!!!

How about this as a solution: a sliding transom.

1965 65ft Feadship. I was aboard from Friday Harbor, San Juan Island to Portland Oregon. It is a real looker in my view.

Yes, it is pretty special. Here is more of the interior . that's real lead in the cabinet doors, and there are two freezers below the galley floor.

Lol!

How many minutes before it would jam; or should that be seconds?

Not sure what the owner had in mind for power. It's been awhile since that trip but I remember the the capt. that had been running the boat back and forth from the San Juans and Portland every year for the owner said this would be his last trip until the engines were replaced. I guess the owner had a couple of new units sitting in the yard ready to go in. I don't remember what they were.

Hmmm. Couldn't resist that idea, Eric. Still, the extended platform doesn't blend as well as the Rocna.

The Menorquins have always tripped my curiosity. Curvaceous.... sensuous form with an unapologetic morf of function, like a perfect eggplant with a cell phone stuck in it, but there it is. If the engine space wasn't such a pain, I may have owned one. If Ken Fickett got the inspiration of the Great Harbor by combining the ideas of a Manatee and a Florida Bay Coaster, he must have got the stern platform idea from Menorquin.

OK Larry,
I like twins but I prefer red bottoms. Big props.
Good job though Larry. With that hull I could use a lot more power too.
You always catch me off guard.
