Location: New Jersey English Punt with a twist I've been searching around for a first boat to build and got hooked on the English Punts, completely by accident, while searching for information on Venetian Gondolas and Pupparins.
Being a fan of the Venetian style of rowing, I decided to deviate from punting and instead want to build the boat with a forcole and row it instead. I've been trying to enter the dimensions for this into free!ship or hulls but I don't know how to import the numbers as offsets.
I have enjoyed reading the numerous posts on the forum, always an interesting discussion to be found.
Location: Essex UK Interesting idea, the Punt is very similar in purpose to the Venetian boats. The Sciopon was the type of boat used by the fishermen & wildfowlers often carrying a large calibre Gun for shooting ducks. We went to Venice some years ago and met a Gentleman called Gilberto Penzo, he is passionate about the boats of the lagoon & has a fascinating shop where he builds models sells plans etc, well worth a look if you ever get to Venice.
Location: Iowa, USA Gondolas are able to be rowed with an oar on one side because they have asymmetrical hulls and are long. Location: Essex UK The asymetric hull of the Gondola is a relatively new phenomenon only in use for little over a hundred years, before that they were symetrical. The Sandolo and similar boats are symetrical but can be rowed with one or two oars or oarsmen. In the end its worth a try as if it doesnt work just fit another Forcole & row standing up Venetian style with a pair of crossed oars!

Location: Essex UK Gondolas are usually rowed with the blade in the water most of the time, the two man ferries that crisscross the Grand canal, Tragheto's often row with blades out of the water, there are moe variations in Venetian rowing technique than you can shake a stick at. I moved the standard Jon boat oarlock on the starboard to just in front of the rear seat (the seat runs from gunwale to gunwale). Your concept as drawn at least will give you a high platform like the pupparin and the gondola, which is really great, but you’ll have to use the longer oars made for those boats rather than the shorter ones made for the mascereta, sciopon and sandola because you stand inside these instead of on a poop-deck. You may need to add ballast in your bow for proper trim unless you make your boat over 25-feet. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Location: NW Washington State USA I think we kinda sorta had this discussion before and concluded that a Grand Banks 36 took 50 hp to make 7 knots and a Willard 40 took 23.

Location: OREGON I'm guessing that you could fit about 300 lbs of flotation far up in the bow in the enclosed space.
Location: Eustis, FL Unless you can devise a way to hide in the neighborhood of 32 cubic feet of flotation (yep, that's a whole lot of dead, unusable space) adding buoyancy bags or foam or whatever is a fruitless operation. I suspect the under sole areas will be enough to keep, if lightly loaded, boat awash, but afloat in the event of a problem. Location: Alliston, Ontario, Canada The bottom edge of the bulkhead is flat but it's sides suggest a Vee bottom so it probably continues down past the visible floor. Location: Eustis, FL That's what I saw Terry, but my tip offs were the scuppers in the transom, several inches above the bottom of the boat.
Location: East Sandwich Restoration Thanks Gentleman for your interest.
You could stuff some foam up under the gunwales but that would probably only float the boat.
PS, if that deck is watertight and there are no limber holes in the frames and stringers under the deck then you have a great big airchamber that will provide flotation. I'm thinking of a Capsize, as in he got caught where he shouldnt have been and was rolled over. With an outboard, and Battery etc that would be heavy, but Gasoline that would float, would the Foam or whatever under the Gunn'ls keep the Gunn'ls on the surface? Location: Washington That is why I suggested he put flotation under the gunwales. I gues it wouldnt matter where the floatation is, as long as it kept the boat on the surface. In CCAnglers case, By himself, he may have to sit on the overturned boat, but with some help you might be able to turn the boat back upright.
Then it would stay upright and on the surface, if it had some floatation up in those Gunnl's.
In the NFL players case, the Bimini was just too heavy to ever get the boat upright without a lift.
Location: Alliston, Ontario, Canada Weel, you could add a bouyant mast to stop it turtling and a fin keel that you could stand on to right it, but then it would be well on the way to turning into a sailboat.
Floatation under the side decks is the logical location and yes it matters where you place the floatation. The English punts are often quite long of similar proportions and the long straight chine would add to directional stability.

The enclosed spaces below the sole (cockpit decking) will be a buoyancy chamber and just as effective as if foam filled, plus they'll support slightly more boat, without the weight of the foam.
Since you're under sole areas are sealed up, have limited under deck space, you're best just running with what you've got. With that much floatation low down I don't think you have much chance of making her self-righting, but by the looks of those holes low on the transom you have a self-draining cockpit if the motor isn't too heavy.
