Boatshed???

You and I have entirely different ideas of what constitutes a boat shed. That's a mansion compared to my steel framed fabric covered hot house which, when I put it up, thought was pretty flash for a backyard builder.

Very well done indeed. Looks like you have "plans" for the shed once your boat building project is complete.

As we say in Australia - "Yeah....Nah"

That looks way too cold for this black duck. This past winter I think I brought out a jumper to wear for about a week for an hour or so each day just to ward off that early morning "chill". In fact, I recall it getting to single figures overnight only twice this year...8 or 9 degrees (can't remember the exact number). But that's 8C (or 46F). :D

Hello folks and greetings from The States. I must be the Lone Wolf Yank here. I’m at a bit of a disadvantage here in that I don’t have the ability to visit other builders. I do stay in contact and thank all of you for sharing what you have. During these hard times we all need to find something productive to get our minds off of what’s happening. Here’s another glimpse into my world.

I need advice.
I’m sure you everyone has their own opinion and all are welcome.
As we all know one big problem with a catamaran is the bridge deck slapping the water in big chop. Has anyone thought about a design that might help with this? I have an idea and I’d like to pass it on for your scrutiny ;) . Of course this is just a mock-up so be kind. I’m positive someone has thought about this and would share their thoughts.

Hi Dean

In my honest opinion I wouldn't bother with that idea. Bridegedeck slap usually only happens when you're under way and the wash under the bridgedeck is coming every which way not just from the sea passing through the tunnel but also the reflection of those waves hitting the inside of the two hulls as well as the wake your two hulls generate as you make way. It's like a washing machine under there. Your idea will add weight and therefore reduce the bridgedeck height above sea level and, therefore, increase the potential of bridgedeck slap.

The best way to reduce bridgedeck slap is increase the bridgedeck height above water......or get a monohull.....no bridgedeck slap there :D

Thanks for the advise.
How’s your boat doing??

Nearly there...just doing the last of the electrical work. After that it's just locker, cupboard, cabin doors and soft furnishings. Up until the Covid rerstrictions came in I was planning on only doing the cockpit lockers with the rest being done on the water or when I get down Brisbane way where I have the use of an industrial sewing machine to do the cushions, shade covers etc. I was looking at a June launch but now probably Sept / Oct. In the meantime I have a house to paint which will keep me occupied.
