If it?s of interest to you read the notes that go with the source material for the drawings.
Location: Eustis, FL Having met and discussed boat design at length with the very man that drew those plans I can assure you he didn't sneak around, pulling lines from vessels, by flashlight probably, in the middle of the night.
His process was quite simple, to preserve the lines of types that would soon become extinct (his assumption, usually quite accurately so). I met him at the end of his life, when he wished he had more time to catalog the craft he felt he missed, but was no longer the man able to perform this task. Buy the plans Boreas, they're very inexpensive and he'd loved the idea they were doing what he hoped it would, spark interest in a type long gone. I said, ?He didn?t get permission but instead he snuck around in the middle of a moonless night and stole them.? and I thought it was extreme enough that nobody would take it seriously. Location: Cathlamet, WA The point I tried to make was that Chapelle likely had no permission from the designer or the builder to make those drawings in most cases.

Location: Trondheim, NORWAY It's a complicated question with no simple answers.
If the design office is still in business or the boat is still in production, you have to ask.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Location: Orange Beach, AL, USA I enjoyed the conversation and I want to build one of the boat motors pictured using a small one cylinder diesel.
Frosty Previous Member   They use wood bearings,even on big trawlers with shafts of 6 inch or more lumps of wood sat soaking in big smelly tanks are removed and fitted into a 4 jaw chuck and turned down. Frosty Previous Member   The props they use here are very very cheap.
Location: Muscatine, Iowa frosty what do you think it would cost to ship one of those props to the usa. Location: Muscatine, Iowa pstnbroke do you worry about engine tilt i thought you couldnt tilt a 4 stroke engine more than about 15 degrees? If you get stuck here, I can try and go to the beach, find a sample and get you some measures. Ohio-based Zyvex Technologies just unveiled the Piranha – a next-gen unmanned boat that is 75% lighter, 40% stronger, and 400% more fuel efficient than similarly-sized aluminum boats.

Location: Adriatic sea Simple wiring diagram for small craft Regularly I've seen questions on this forum about electrical wiring because that is still a mystery for many boat owners. Here is a simple wiring diagram for motor- and sailing boats with one engine and just the basic equipment. Boat owners who have no idea what this all means should of course hire a qualified technician!

Beau No, I used switches and fuses, but of course you could also take automatic circuit breakers if you don't mind the extra cost. Because this post was only meant to help people getting started, I did not supply detailed info. Fuses are absolutely necessary to protect your safety, but with proper, careful wiring they should never do what they are designed for: blow. Location: Outer Hebrides, Scotland CDK, can I ask what the box at the bottom left of your drawing is? There are only 7 wires connecting it to the rest of electrical parts that is located elsewhere on board, i.e.
I've wondered about taking common cheap ac switches like Delane used and attaching pigtails potting them with epoxy. Location: Milwaukee, WI If you have fuel onboard, those switches are not spark protected.
Tangram 3DS, a firm specializing in visualization and computer animation, announced its collaboration with Schopfer Yachts, LLC. To achieve this goal, Kevin Schopfer, president of Schopfer Yachts, chose Tangram 3DS for their proven strategic process, technical capabilities, and award-winning architectural visualization. Animating both interior and exterior views of Oculus, Tangram walks the viewer through the details of the design concept. For Tangram, the key to their successful solutions is to build upon the extraordinary designs and concepts of their clients to bring projects to life through animation and visualization. Location: south carolina building an aluma jet after 2 years i finally finished my jet boat project. Well, as far as mine, I started on it in February of 2005, and by July of '05, it was on the water an operational. Unfortunately, this was metal-to-metal wear, and the flats of the shaft would wear out after about 100 hours, on average. The levers themselves were originally made out of aluminum flat bar, with the ends radiused. The way I did my throttle cable was to buy the cable conduit like that used on motorcycle control cables. I also had to make my own cable brackets, for holding the throttle, steering, and reverse cables securely. The second in a three-part series in which we take a used aluminum boat and be sitting very high and would be put to the test when driving the boat.

They sell copies at a very reasonable price and it would be both safer and more polite to buy a set instead of using a photocopy.
Is a copyright valid forever, or is it like the music buisness, something like 50 years after the rightholders death.
What aould be the legal consequece if you build a boat after someones drawings without paying a royalty?
It contains the known background and written interviews with the owner and other interested parties. He was a unique work of art, a true artist, historian, fine draftsman, builder and yacht designer. The 54-foot vessel features a high-tech carbon fiber shell that harnesses nanotechnology to yield unparalleled gains in efficiency and performance, and it recently completed its testing off of Puget Sound.
Zyvex infused the carbon fiber material with carbon nano tubes to create an extremely strong yet light shipbuilding material.
Parts like the diode bridge and 4-way battery switch are available from Vetus in Europe, I did not look for US suppliers. As a company dedicated to the pursuit of advanced yacht design and technology, Schopfer Yachts wanted to make a statement in the global yachting community with its first design concept; the 250-foot vessel, Oculus.
Designed to accommodate 12 guests in extraordinary comfort and style, Oculus is a long distance cruising yacht. To be able to visualize a design project in 3D and through animation, allows potential buyers or stakeholders in a project to envision the final result, said Stefan Vittori, president and founder of Tangram 3DS.


After having that fail twice, I went with a spartan jaw coupler, the one used on the Kawasaki 750 jet skis. I used jam nuts and washers to control the amount of friction required to operate the levers.
As well as designing a weedless grate system, using some stainless flat bar, and another push-pull teleflex cable, with a specially designed watertight housing where the cable goes into the intake scoop. I think there is no copyright on plans held by the Smithsonian but I think the book you copied from does have a copyright held by W.W. Is it legal to create and build a "replica" built on limited information like a line drawing found on internet? In fact there is a published book that details how to document historic boats and what paperwork needs to be prepared and also covers the necessary permissions. It was also his hope, that his drawings (generally, not a complete plan set, but enough for an experienced builder or designer, needing reference material) would continue to foster recreations, evolutions of the type, restorations and reproductions. He took liberties, at times, a lot of heat over the USS Constellation (he was right after all, long before anyone would admit it publicly) was an opinionated, stubborn and grouchy individual, but I loved him, just because he wouldn't conform, if for no other reason (it was the late 60's and non-conformity was a thing for me at the time).
People that work hard to document old designs before they vanish are normally paid by museums.
The automotive type with knife contacts costs only a few cents and makes reliable contact with a socket or crimp terminal. Collaborating back and forth, Tangram was able to bring those sketches to life, through design studies, renderings, and finally animation. The exterior styling is representative of the jaw and eye socket bone structure of large oceanic fish and mammals. And in this situation, Kevin needed to deliver an amazing and captivating design concept that would set the tone for the start of what we hope will be a successful venture. Then, I took some small brass round rod, drilled and tapped it for setscrews, and then a cross drill for the cable to fit through. By shutting off the engine, then, pushing down on a handle lever, I can drop the intake grate, allowing it to clear off any weeds.
Although they are still in the process of editing the footage right now, I'm fairly certain this boat will be seen on TV, as it was hauling members of the camera crew.
This work is usually paid for by a grant from someone and the paperwork to document both the boat and the use of the money is beyond belief. He thought I was a brash young pup, that needed a good *** whipping, though he liked my sailing skills, particularly against the blue bloods.
So it make sense to buy plans from the museum, even if it's just for the wall in your workshop. I assume they just raise the prop out of the water while running if the motor doesn't have a neutral or reverse gear. Glass fuses in a fuse holder are very unreliable in a marine environment but you already found that out. Highlighting the yachts design details and extraordinary comfort and style, Tangram created an animation that is a showcase for Schopfers first design concept for the yachting community. The interior features of Oculus focus on a 12-foot high ceiling in the main salon, a cylindrical double height dining room, and a central stairway. Sand and mud or muck bottoms will destroy all COMMON built jet drives and possibly you if you eject in a turn with a channel marker pole in front of you. A mini scatter shield is a very good idea for the rare times they let go completly because no one saw the first of the 3 links opening. I used the existing design of the Sea Doo Jet Boat's weedless system as a model for my design. Attendees will evaluate the Piranha for uses such as fighting piracy and oceanographic surveying.
I might also add that some things aren?t copyrighted and old boats aren?t likely to have been copyrighted at all.
It has changed hands a number of times and was last seen at the Key Largo Hotel marina in Florida.
