At 15 JOHN BROOKS joined his grandparents and other family members on a two-year sailing trip from the Pacific Northwest to South Africa.
Would you like to understand how to design your own boat or gain a better grasp of how design affects a boat’s performance?
Whether you want to get a taste of the design process, be able to put your ideas on paper, or start down the road to becoming a professional designer, this course will allow you to accomplish several things. Students need not have any previous experience with boat design or mathematics; just a keen interest will do.
1 element means one LE mold, cheaper tools, but at the cost of morphing issues to be addressed.
Now with regards to the gap, just remenber that the main issue to be adressed by the wing section is managing the transition point as explained by Tom Speer.
For A-Cat Reynolds regime, this transition point is more an issue at hight AoA and low speed than the opposite.
The point get is a twistable structure like the Cogito, so no compression on the mast above hound.
Usually, these 2 parts windsurf masts use to brake at the junction, so the top part is generally in great condition (no wishbone) and light below 1kg for 2,60 meters long, and available below 100? on windsurf forums, so very cost-effective, if not weight optimum. Just with this part, you can address all the issues at smaller scale, and when it is OK, you can make the bottom bigger part. With regards to the twist and aero shape related problems, my brain is a bit confused with the following points.
The main mast is likely to be around 7.5% to 10% of the chord section, but the max section thickness, is likely to be around 20 to 25%. The max thickness point needs to be controlled thoroughly, usually with a I structure between both side. But when the LE twists, each spar of the I structure has tendency to slip vs each other in the vertical plan. So when the wing twists I wonder if the leeward ribs will climb a bit more than the windward one and if it could offset the vertical slip due to the twist. May be it is a stupid issue, cannot be sure, you seems to be better brain-equipped than me for this kind of problem.
Regarding aero shape, if morphing solution is seek, I remenber Tom Speer remarks about a Max lift Airfoil (mla) for 300 000 Reynolds, posted by Mark Drela, during the A-Cat world in Florida, probably 2008.
Structurally it was not very different from a dear-drop mast + sail arrangement, but as it was a Stratford concave recovery distribution, with the usual inflexion around 50% chord and no thickness but the first 20% leading edge, so not enought lateral inertia to hold the rig. Tom Speer made a very enlighting comment, saying that the wing section could be thicken without changing the leeward side shape, as long as the windward side (high pressure) can provide a slightly continously accelerating path for the air flow, a kind of flattish slice of a parabola with more convexity or curvature (second derivatives) near the LE. In fact a shape which is not very different from a basic catamaran batten shape under load, with increasing inertia from LE to TE. As a result, I feel a morphing wing section cannot avoid some tension stress on the skin to hold is as scheduled both in the horizontal and vertical direction.
Hope it is not too confused, my cognitive processes are streched to their limits with this kind of problem, that is why I do not go forward very fast. Doug - Moth is out until they firm up the rules, even then the first design cycle of Moth wings will have new rule interpretation problems. Because the wing is restrained by the ball and the traveler, the aero loads on it make it want to fold in half.
Location: Port Gamble, Washington, USA The most rapid and powerful control is the traveler. However, it's important to take out the camber when tacking, or it can fly the wing to a negative angle of attack and power up on the other tack with the traveler slack. Flap Twist, or in our team we call it #3 twist, because we just name everything after structural components.
So now we are sailing upwind and a puff hits, 14 knots TWS now, first I simply ease the sheet to maintain heel angle and Fredo might take a little height for a moment then puts the bow down again and we are now doing 15 knots or so. Now the breeze drops to 6 knots of breeze, no problem, take out all the twist in #1 and #3, then drop in a heap of camber, say up to 25-30 degrees total, resist the temptaion to oversheet. Location: Toronto OK, kids are in bed and a cold beers is next to me, now we can bear away and go downhill for a bit. If you are reaching, you probably just take two steps back on the rail, ease the sheet as you go around the mark and just speed up, maintain heel angle and probably trim back in a wee bit. Next I slide into position, in 10 knots I will likely be kneeling on the leeward hull, just behind the dagger foil.
I like trimming to leeward becasue I can look up at the lee side of the wing and see the whole show, and if it's flying or not.


At 14 knots TWS we are going 20 knots boat speed and I am playing the sheet fairly aggressivley to trim the bow to the right height. Now the breeze is building more and we have 18" chop on the course, which is about double the amount of freeboard we have. One thing I found out many years ago is that cutting the tips of an APC prop really drops the efficiency tremendously.
Location: Huddersfield, UK Some discussion and detailed work by Rick of the seacycle props used on my pedal powered cat Fangle here.
This is what I mean, there are plenty of people talking at huge length and detail about the vagaries of countless factors but lack of real life, bottom line usable information. Portacruise, the 10-1 gearing with a 16x16 ACP prop suggestion is the kind of useful stuff any budding HPB builder is really looking for to start, thanks.

Guest625101138 Previous Member   I can sustain 130W for about 4 hours when in reasonable shape.
I adjust the pitch across my blades so I get a more favourable pressure distribution on the blades.
JavaProp is a bit limited but it will usually be within 2% of actual if you make sure the Re# is in the range.
I have made and tested maybe 50 props and designed many more that people have used with success. There is some HPB racing for comparison but very few people approached from a sound engineering point of view - it is mostly trial and error. The Bolly boat prop is about the best commercial prop but it is not as good as you can make with a couple of pieces of flat bar, welder and grinder. Not sure how slippery they would be when wet but worth a try because the pulleys are dead easy to make in numerous ways.
This thread has served my purpose but it would be good if people kept posting their diameter+pitch+gearing+ boat type etc. The torsional rigidity of the drive train from cranks to prop is a large factor in the smoothness of the drive. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. House boats have traditionally been an alternative lifestyle for those irresistably drawn to a water bound lifestyle. This completely original boat home seems a bit different than your typical houseboat so we explored it inside and out for a better understanding of this popular phenomenon.
The modern interiors equipped with tons of natural light and simple white decor keep an open feel to this compact space.
The view through these windows makes them look like architectural details and the perfect accent color for the space!

In college he studied engineering and journalism, then he went to work building boats, took a boat design course, and built a Chesapeake Bay skipjack for himself.
You’ll dispassionately analyze the science of what makes a boat float and move, while gaining an understanding of the role art plays in boat design. Any technique can be used for each student’s own “dream boat,” from plank-on-frame to vacuum-bagged and epoxied veneers reinforced with exotic materials. The main focus of the course will be on understanding the concepts and principles that play a part in boat design and in developing an eye for aesthetics. It was challenging for me and rewarding and I hope to keep at it while studying on my own over the next few months. Your ELEMENTS OF BOAT DESIGN course gave me both a practical and theoretical understanding of how a boat is designed. Panels such as on Cogito get slightly shorter as they twist, this makes the mechanics a problem.
Most systems I see at present have a sheet that controls the camber and a sheet that controls the wing angle, equivalent to the main sheet so I'll call it the main sheet or do they call it the wing sheet?
First I ease the sheet, let the boat accelerate to target speed, then I lean into the rail and pull some camber out of the wing, only a few degrees. Mostly I can do it by feel, meaning I can feel the onset of a stall in the sheet loading and but the speed of the boat for a given wind speed. So I will move aft and to windward, In 12 knots of breeze I will likely be sitting in the middle of the tramp with a tiller almost up my arse.
I have now moved into the back corner of the tramp and I have eased out the #1 twist to about 20 degrees or more. You can drop the prop pitch from there for lower inputs of power from non athletes by switching to a different prop.


Once I have arrived at a satisfactory effort level by chopping it I'll then guesstimate the nearest size uncut prop.
Prop specs are one tiny part of the experience of building, operating, and fishing from a pedal powered boat in the sea in varying conditions.
This subculture of boat dwellers either work in the fishing industry or living on a budget have simply have made their humble boat a home. We bring to you inspiring visuals of cool homes, specific spaces, architectural marvels and new design trends. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Would you like to explore the relationship of construction methods to hull design—which works well with what shapes? You will learn how to back up your project ideas with sound engineering principles, hydrostatics, and scantlings that reflect the intended use and life of the boat. I have a start with my own set of incomplete plans but enough starting knowledge to have satisfied what brought me to WoodenBoat School and this course specifically. If you imagine the wing as a sliced loaf of bread standing up then twist it (or a pack of cards) it does not get shorter due to the twist. Everything else is slave to this adjustment so it makes sense to focus on this one, it is the number two control on thw wing.
Upwind equals no twist, downwind equals 10-20 degrees of twist depending on condtions, which wing we are using etc. If the breeze is steady I will probably not rush to use any twist, if it's gusty I might drop in a little twist in #3 to flatten the top of the wing a bit.
If I am sheeting hard (Clew at center line of boat) and the hull is still dropping, Fred heads up a bit to power us up.
Fred stays on the wire where he can see lots and he can eaily step back and forth to trim the boats pitch angle.So at 14 knots TWS I still have 35-40 degrees of camber, 15 degrees of #1 twist, 0 degrees of #3 twist and I am trimming to heel angle and bow ride height. In fact more recently we are seeing custom designed boats becoming a permanent place for luxury living.
In 1992 he and his wife, Ruth Ann Hill, started their own business designing and building glued-lapstrake boats, and together they wrote How to Build Glued-Lapstrake Wooden Boats, published by WoodenBoat Books in 2004. And you’ll start creating your own design, mainly working on the preliminary and lines drawings, as much as time allows. You’ll also learn about the intricate interplay of various views in a set of plans as John demonstrates how a half model goes together. The eye and judgment of the designer are still the most important ingredients in any design.
I have also pulled the board up about a foot to make sure we don;t have negative leeway and too much tripping of the boat. We have a continous double sided sheet that runs all over the whole boat so I just pick a block and trim from that, wherever is comfortable. We are now doing 22.5 knots regulalry and the boat does not really want to go any faster, so we are just pointing as deep as we dare, balancing that angle with the need to not pitchpole. I finally just bought a bunch of APCs that were around the size and pitch and honed in on the best one, much like MCDenny did in his posts on the efficient electric boats. After moving to Brooklin in 2003, John continued designing boats and developing plans while also taking advantage of an opportunity to work at Doug Hylan’s shop and Brooklin Boat Yard as a master carpenter. If so, you’ll find this challenging and fun course with talented boatbuilder and designer John Brooks to be right up your alley. Before taking pencil to paper, you will research the type of boat you want to design, discuss your initial ideas with John, and learn how to start drawing on your own, using basic drafting skills plus learning new ones required for drawing boats. Students will explore various methods and approaches to designing a boat, from ancient to cutting edge, and have a chance to pick the ones that work best for you.
You will leave Brooklin with a whole new understanding about boats and a new group of friends to share them with!
If you get a plastic ruler and twist it, it gets shorter as there are no slip planes in the structure, plus it presents quite a bit of torsional stiffness. If I'm sailing a wing do I "trim or steer" by changing the angle of attack (traveller) or do I change the camber? Some wings have a single line for both sides, some have individual port and starbord controls.
Since 2009, he and Ruth have worked together as Brooks Boats Designs full-time, developing plans for boats they built on MDI and for new designs. Some of our wings have this control double sided, meaning one line affects both sides, other wings have individual port and starboard controls. I might have to push the middle of the wing on Canaan as it can be a little stiff some times.
A qucik ease and a pump at the right time pops the bow a little from a wave and then forces acceleration with a bow down attitude out the back side of the wave which from off the boat simply looks like level flight, despite punching through waves. I wouldn't want to clutter up your thread with 'waffle'; if you would like to know more, please say so. If I want to depower quickly(gust response) do I ease the traveller like I'd use a mainsheet?
