The RG65 class will be featured in the AMYA Model Yachting Magazine this winter, and Eric Rosenbaum asked me to work up something for an article. Since I haven’t done an RG65 since Round Ranger, I was happy to agree. When the season winds down here in NH, I’ll build it and do a writeup with some build pics.
The plan was developed in Freeship. Displacement is 1000g, beam is 95mm, canoe draft is 35mm. Prismatic coefficient is high at .62 to retain volume in the ends to reduce pitching and help keep the bow up.
Since I needed a new boat for some upcoming racing, I downsized the design and built it as a Footy. I’m very pleased with its performance, so I’m pretty sure it will be a good “Two Footy” as well.
Name ideas and comments are welcome.
