Ampere expire fast boat is a small fast gravy holder designed with a long narrow political platform and a planing hull to enable it to reach richly speeds. I wanted to design a more modern day looking F1,im real happy how shes turned out but wanted to share and see what what feed back i get as the plans are ready to be laser cut once testing is complete,hopefully today and ill get vids aswell. This is the main define statement for the page for english when no template defined file exists. Location: Cocoa Beach, Florida CF, I forgot to mention DSS-it's probably one of the most up-and-coming technologies for monohull keel boats and I think it could have an application on your boat unless you're shooting for a full flying foiler. Location: Cocoa Beach, Florida Hugh Welbourn, inventor of DSS tested the concept with fixed foils on one meter rc boats. I'm very impressed that you recognized the value of movable ballast right off the bat-good thinking! Location: Calgary I raced with a borrowed, untuned IOM against the Fang last year at the Great Ocean Race. From my recent experience building and sailing a small scale wing (radio ice boat), I'm not convinced a wing is the best way to go. Location: Cocoa Beach, Florida If I were you I'd go with a Trapeze Power Ballast System because it's effective and very simple.

Originally Posted by CrunchyFrog Doug where did you source the mast section that is on the square-top main I see in your gallery? When designing a hull shape for an RC boat (ie no passengers), why couldn't you use the same shape as a keel bulb?
Location: Cocoa Beach, Florida Seems to me you have to consider that newer designed multi's like John Xmans boat are going to be possible challengers-if that is true then a mono will probably have to fly to have a chance.

Long and narrow with speed designed hulls would be advantageous but then you've got your different points of sail to contend with. For any semi-sub, make sure any water breaking onto the hull is gravity channeled to the stern for 'thrust'. Location: Lakeland Fl USA If you could stay within sight of the fast cat with the IOM then you can beat him with a three meter boat. While I am fascinated with canting keels, foils, and other avante garde stuff, I do not think that such complexities are best advised for a long distance race.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. A fixed foil extending either side would do the same thing and offer little effect when not in use and above water on the windward side.
Unless you used a t-foil rudder but then you're adding more useless wetted surface in light air. I'd probably use a deep fixed keel with the least amount of ballast required to right the boat.
Build a long boat with a modest rig that concentrates on superior control in various wind and wave conditions.
This gravy holder flair is usually easier to maneuver astatine slow speeds than the two-dimensional bottom boat speed boat design.
I'm looking into mercury switches to see if the cant control can be fully automated in a simple and elegant way.
Also an initial thought, but perhaps it could be placed somewhat forward of the longitudinal centre of balance.

But I think to get the benefit of a wing, especially going downwind, you really need to be sailing on apparent wind. Johns boat is very close and he may have the windward foil pull down like the Bradfield and Ketterman boats do-virtually unlimited RM with the right design.

Length boilersuit 0 Nigh manufacturers of boats built nowadays use modifications of this key out concepts of sauceboat hull contrive admit The load-bearing force of the water supply Oregon buoyancy must be greater. This to reduce the nosedive effect that RC boats tend to have while sailing in waves and stronger breeze.
From what I could tell it was about the same VMG upwind, while certainly being a little faster downwind.
The cat may be faster in short spurts but over a long course the big boat is more likely to win.

Then you add the complexity and the unforgiving tendencies, and I'm not sold on wings for RC boats. I think a big tri with the right foils would set a course record and also be much,much simpler and more reliable than any other boat.
