NEXT DESIGN

Here is some more iterations on the Next Design
Click once or twice to enlarge.

The next design is here 5.8 meters long. A 20 feet container is 5.89 meter long inside. The boat also has more beam 1.44 meters, the reason to have storage for water on each side of my bunk. To the starboard there is a bilgeboard. In the aft section there is a guest bunk also place to sit athwartships.
Me sitting on the port side in the aft cabin. Ample place for even a taller person. To my left towards the bow of the boat is storage for eating things.
Modell with 3 balanced lug sails each 4 sq meter.

The modell seen from abouve. Two of the holes that can hold the mast are seen on the starboard side. The mast can be mowed around to suit the conditions. They are not more heavy than a strong oar. The holes can also be used to hold a strong winch to haul the boat up on a beach or back into deep water when she has run aground.

NEXT DESIGN

While working on Exlex a prototype I am thinking of next design.

All the errors I encounter I tell myself I correct that for the next design. I also get bright ideas. One such is to have an two meter long aft cabin with a bunk for a short girl. It will also contain the lunch-room if you sitt atwarth-ships. To make that possible I have increased the beam of next design to 1.4 meter. This has enabled me to make the boat shorter. Next design is now 5.6 meters long or 18′ 4”.

The hull made of 5 cm thick Divinycell reduces the inside beam to 1.3 meter. I need about 1.2 meter sitting space so plenty of room. Headroom is 90 centimeters.

The picture below illustrates the idea.
