Location: Texas Requesting Small Sternwheeler hull design and analysis help Asking for help with hull design and analysis.
Here is a Lafitte Skiff, used on many Louisiana Shrimp boats, that ravel the bays and bayous and other shallow areas, beaching, to land, without being stuck. Location: Spain I guess the first thing you need is someone to do a body lines plan for your boat.
Also try the 'search' function at the top for this site as a whole or 'search this thread' for the various forums individually. Here's the Showboat with a profile of the Selway, scaled for intended hull length to match the inner hull length from bow to wheel opening, and I don't know how to do the wheel arms. I don't mind simplifying, heck putting flat pieces together is easier than compound curves.
I also could use a bit more transition from the bottom to the transom, for better water flow to the wheels.
I'm not trying to make it harder, I just don't really know how to answer better, so I'm sure I'm not even asking myself all the correct questions.


Location: Texas Maybe simply angle the transom down and forward to where the waterline meets the profile, for the aft transition, to feed water to the wheels?
Trying to keep the deck at a level that swimmers can pull up, out of the water, and pushing the cabin up makes it too top heavy. Location: Texas I don't know how to really push and pull on a design, but I think that jon-boat is more workable than the others, if given a profile more like the Selway, and an angle to the transom, it should be right on the money, for this. Location: Spain In general, the height of the deck over the water must have a minimum value, called freeboard, established by the regulations, that does not depend on the type of boat that is, mono-hull or catamaran.
I'm sorry but due, probably, to my inability with the English language, I am not able to know what you want.

I expect the freeboard to be around 12 in-16 in, with an additional lip, around the edge of the passenger compartment, inside the cabin wall, above the hull, to provide additional resistance to the ingress of water.
By placing an extended deck, outward from the hull, at that 12 in-16 in height, Swimmers should have access to the deck, as I intend.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. It would be good that you decide for any of them and tell us the main dimensions you want for your boat. There is some good info in all these different threads and also some links to other stern wheel sites.
