I could be wrong, but mast base “appears” to be a bit too far forward - unless your sail plan is for a mainsail with a rather large foot dimension, extending back past the hatch opening. ( a personal observation) Have you run CLR and COE numbers yet?
Most masts for a traditional rig, are seldom this far forward of the leading edge of the keel. I could be wrong, but my first impression is that you will have lee helm. Is jib designed for full mast height or fractional? If a small jib, you may be OK
Has nice lines - reminds me of a Lightning class boat. Will be interested to see final finish and hear how it sails.
:zbeer: Dick, sorry an M505 has a Una rig!:graduate:
It’s currently set up for a single main mast sail, Una rig, etc. to comply with M505 rules.
And can be converted to a typical Bermuda rig with a small jib and a large main sail that will extend just behind the hatch opening.
Since the mold is made, I can make a whole bunch of hulls with different configurations.
Right now, I want something that will be fun to sail around.
There are only three of us around the US building a hull.
One is complete with main and jib sails.
We have about about 25 interested members in our yahoo group. Not much currently happening. Maybe once we get a few boats in the water, more folks will jump on the bandwagon…
that looks absolutely lovely sven! very nice shape! geez, now my new one looks like the ugly duckling… best of luck, and who knows, i may be contatcting you about a hull!.. maybe…
now i have to go build…
great job once again!:zbeer:
