Title: Critique my hull design
Post by: jacknz123 on May 31, 2016, 13:00:56 PM
Hi all,
I have spent a considerable amount of time following the Freeship tutorial to build a boat and have come up with a design. Boat is intended to be a lightweight, sturdy river boat that is cost effective to manufacture with good looks. Here are the specs

3.1m length
1220mm at chimes
13deg deadrise
1430mm overall width
50mm 5 deg downturned chimes
1740mm from transom to dash
Seperate delta section designed to fit on half a sheet

Here are my questions:

Is a press brake capable of achieving the folds I am after on the gunnels to get a downwards sloping deck? I appreciate that this section will require a 'v' cut into it where the downwards slope begins.

Is there anything I am missing with this design? Reasons you wouldn't go with it for its intended purpose?
