Viking Boat Building with names such as Odin Tor and Skadi they are referred to as gods and goddesses followed from Norse mythology and the intention to unite the soul of travel and exploration that Norsemen had been renowned for the State-of-the-art engineering and contemporary design roomy Viking Boat Building . I am considering reconfiguring an interior on a center cockpit 42' steel ketch I recently purchased. CatBuilder Previous Member   Jay, I've been down this path on past restorations. Interior components are mocked up on board the yacht with door skin ply, hot glue and a staple gun.

Location: spain The interior is designed to compliment the way you use your boat. Plenty to think about here, and it will take many attempts drawing it out to scale to get it right.
This thread seems to be addressing all of them at one time with all of us posters going in different directions.
PS: Better than using a computer to model an interior layout, IMO, is using a scaled drawing of the hull.
I was a wooden boatbuilder turned live-aboard after I got tired of waving goodbye to my work from the dock. Keep the boat simple for ease of operation and also for a lower cost basis in the rebuild and overall maintenance. I don't have much interest in reading of those who feel an urge to tell me how I don't have enough cash to make this happen.

Vikings are known as fearless warriors, but they wouldn’t have gotten anywhere without being great shipbuilders. According to Jorn Loset of Norway, most skills and knowledge were passed down verbally without any drawings or diagrams. The following video shows the building of a present day Viking ship using the same techniques as originally used. David enjoys research and writing about cutting edge technologies that hold the promise of improving conditions for all life on planet earth. Please let me inform you that we also in Denmark have a museum with these great ships from 1000 years ago.

My intention is to be mindful of the trim of the boat as I go along and with the aid of CAD solid modelling have some idea of component weights and therefore the centre of gravity front to back and side to side.
Sukisolo was right about traditional boats being designed to maximise load but he is totally wrong when he says I now have the opportunity to refine the shape.
Anyway, lots of work to do on my part playing and sketching various alternatives so things may go quiet for a while but I will be back to show progress and listen to your feed back.

The boat was designed for a client with a very different SOR to yours, ergo, different solution. The main cost of the narrow boat shell in this country is the labour, even if you use heavier thicknesses. Location: Hampshire UK With respect, I never said you cannot have a near maximum area in the midship and for a significant length. How you persuade water (dense fluid if you like) to start to flow around the midship prism and then recover the energy expended is the key to a good design. Mostly ACAD will be fine for your design work but may be a struggle with the shape as it resolves in the bow and the stern. Oh, I think you owe Ad Hoc an apology, as his design allowed for both pressing the panel and or welding.
The reason for the mains understanding is that on first face post are made that seem to be not relevant to the title subject which is Canal Narrow Boats but I'm beginning to learn that people are expressing a wider opinion in order to give an example of what a certain part of a boat does by comparing if to another type of boat. My first impression was that what was I was being told to do on my boat but I now I'm developing an understanding for the principles and reasoning behind them and how they can or cannot be incorporated into a canal boat. So far as the overall design goes I think I need to resolve the midship section before progressing on to the bow as I'm sure there is a whole new can of worms to open there in another forum subject.
I too overcame many obstacles when designed telecommunication masts and hold granted international patents on the subject!! I have access to Rhino because one of my work colleagues prefers to use it, I've not tried it myself because the screen format just seems so different but I will make a special effort to try it out.
I have had stuff cut (CNC) including 4m dinghy, printed (lost wax) for casting, stereo lithographed etc from Rhino with no problem at all.
I think the posts on here have been helpful and you are gaining a little more insight into the design of your canal boat.

I have to apologise to you in that no, I never considered building a boat in fibre glass for the reason that it will be a big boat, we'll not big; long. Also it is not really the right material anyway, yes as you say it is repairable should it get damaged but I suspect only after the boat has been recovered from the bottom of the canal. If you read the other forum I have going regarding Bilge and Ballast you'll learn like I have that dimensions of a empty canal boat shell will result in a very shallow draft and whilst that may sound like a good idea for a shallow canal there is also a maximum permissible air draft otherwise the craft won't be able to pass under bridges and tunnels, therefore in order to have enough internal headroom the boat needs to have a reasonable draft. A fibre glass shell may be lighter than steel one but then would need more ballast to achieve the desired draft and as I've been told time and time again; ballast takes up internal volume. So you see there is a compromise to be had and I think a steel hull offers a better starting point in that regard. Originally Posted by waikikin Richard, what you've proposed in using a steel fabricator is sound, much of your Narrowboat to a degree is much like the body of a tip truck although with framing to the inside.

To that end this boat will be completely different to any other boat you've seen before in terms of looks. I assure you my boat will not be value engineered but right from the off it will be Design Engineered!
Think of the old Route Master Bus and then compare it with the new one, same with the TX1 and the TX4 London Taxis, both are instantaneously recognisable as design icons as each is generically the same and yet they are different from each other in a Retro kind of way. Location: Spain richardw66, perhaps because of my difficulties with English but do not understand at all the boat you want to do. Location: Coastal Georgia He wants to make a Narrowboat for the English Canals that have a lot of low, narrow places with not much water depth.
Location: Flattop Islands Right at the beginning you need to figure out what you are aiming for and why? This was my goal when I decide to develop this plan, which had to be: easy to build and rig , quite cheap, and produce a small sturdy trailerable sailboat enough roomy to allow a small family of four to travel for a week holiday.
Plans are, as always, richly detailed; this time I decided to add a drawing about mast building, to allow an even cheaper realizations (alloy masts are quite expensive, in this case you can built your own wooden mast by plans).
Engine is a 5-8 HP long shaft outboard fitted on transom, aside from a transom hung rudder, simple and effective.

If you are going to be sailing long ocean passages, you will benefit from a relatively small galley with plenty of places to brace yourself against. If you can, measure the interior space and re-produce it in 3D CAD; that way you can try a large number of different options, and you *should* be able to cut parts direct from the CAD definition. Here is a bit of my story - I am sharing it because each time I seem to post something on these forums ideas come back to me which I had no idea were applicable.
I always wanted to see the other side of all of those customers leaving in apparent euphoria. Have the ability to have my family (four of us) and a couple friends here and there for extended cruising. This will help you arrange the accommodations, find flaws and not spend a lot of money or effort re-arranging and altering as required.
Stick built is easy, if you're a reasonably skilled wood worker, foam sandwich if you'd like lightness and have 'glassing experience, taped seam is an option as well as other avenues of construction detail pursuit.
A well built, but uncomfortable or not well suited accommodations arrangement, may be good looking, but unusable. Norse ship design was passed down from father to son from generation to generation as the art was developed and refined. Traditional boat making before the Vikings involved the use of timber formed into strakes or ribs. The earliest boats were waterproofed with animal guts, which also served to bind the strakes together. It is placed in town Roskilde which was the capital of Denmark many centuries ago and where most of the Danish kings and queens are buried at the Roskilde dome. Addition of an elevator, locked entrance door with passcode, smoke detectors, video surveillance cameras, double glazed openable windows has enabled us to meet the needs of safe and contemporary living.Thus, we take pleasure in offering you five trendy, each individually decorated appartments with the top one having an exceptionally beautiful view.

Currently, there are five: the Balancing Barn in Suffolk, the Shingle House in Kent, the Long House in Norfolk and our favorite, the Dune House in Suffolk.
He got the idea when he was researching his book, The Architecture of Happiness, which explores how the quality of our environment impacts our psyche.
That is why I have pointed you at Ad Hoc's excellent design of a larger version of what you are doing. You have the opportunity to refine the shape and use significantly less power for the same speed.
I've been educated about ballast, I now understand that a boat has fixed ballast, movable ballast and variable ballast. The knock on effect I envisage with the concrete floor idea is total lack of movable ballast. I couldn't appreciate it at first but I can now understand the format of the illustration and Ad Hoc's suggestion does look good with the chimes and slope angles and probably would cause less wash and consume less fuel BUT I have to say that one big flaw the design has it that it fundamentally fails to address the principle requirement maximum internal volume.
Joining different plates together involves welding, welding is a skilled process and takes time, time is money so adds to cost. The fact is I'm stuck with a box design that has to fit within a box limitation and I'm trying to make it with standard plate sizes that don't help. On one project I did designing a mobile phone mast unit we had 6mm difference (potentially) in movement diurnally between 2 materials of the main housing. Rhino would be a lot better for the hull itself, and it can unfold the panels ie give you the flat sheet prior to bending.
No doubt lessons will be learnt there that will have a knock-back on the midships and that may be the case several times over. It is a bit like anything, naval architecture has its own ways of drawing and designing, aerospace another, architects their way etc.
I will not actually be building the boat myself but will put the construction out to competitive tender. This is the start of a very long path of design and I thoroughly accept that the devil is in the detail.
I'm not talking about the standard of workmanship to the cosmetic frills and add-ons because there won't be any nor will the final design look 'cut'. It's what happens when you have a lovely beautiful completely wholesome design for a building that looks great BUT then the 'bean counters' get hold of it and decide parts of the build are too expensive and so substitute all the good bits that make the project look like something for some inferior or cheaper alternatives in an exercise known as 'value engineering'.
Rather than have a badly fabricated detail not done by a proper boat builder I won't have the detail at all; I will just have the clean classic unmistakable lines of a narrow boat.

I purchased the vessel as a restoration project (it is currently in rough shape) and at this time I am working at laying out my long term plans.

If you are only going to sail short distances, and intend to do all your cooking at anchor or mooring, then you can afford a larger galley, with less concern about it's effectiveness at sea.
What you do need is light, so don't skimp, as this will change the whole atmosphere in the boat. I lived on my 38' wooden ketch ( see profile photo above) for 4 years between Maine and South America. I have seen most of my best friends pass on from this world without their biggest dreams coming to fruition, or even having given them an effort to make happen.
The best and most useful method, to which a well fitting and serviceable interior can be established, is a mockup. On the other hand, a cobbled together, but well fitting accommodations plan, will see better service underway, even if it needs duct tape to repair it from time to time.

If you don’t already know the answer to that question, this is a good time and a good way to find out.
The exact paths of the fluid flow are not blindingly obvious, and hold a few surprises to those who do not observe carefully, and note the behaviour of different shapes through a fluid. My idea of the thread title was to unveil my concept of using thermal mass as ballast but the idea seems to have gone down like a lead balloon. The standard layout is usually to have a big water tank in the bow and the fuel tank in the stern.
More over cutting plates down from raw material size causes wastage and therefore more cost. That's probably why a UK narrow boat looks like if does and may be there is no other alternative.
It also gives limited Hyrdrostat data but is fairly quick to extract other essential hull stuff. I have used many different CAD packages in the old past but I have to admit I an totally biased toward AutoCAD, especially for what I do for a living which is essentially putting lines on paper for someone else to build from. Been there used Acad since Rel 9 with 2 screens etc and before that a mainframe and PC Dogs!. It (Rhino) is designed to be easy for Acad users to grasp, which is so so to me but it is the easiest 'hard' NURB modeller out there still. Welding steel is a specialist trade and I should imagine fibre glass moulding is even more so. I also understand that to take path I've chosen to take on the construction with a typical steel fabricator instead of a true arts and crafts boat builder the details will need to reflect this. Usually this means paying 90% of the original cost but only getting 50% of the quality, and as we say in the trade; it looks cut! Does anyone have any thoughts on a few books that they hold in high regards on interior joinery?
As I remove the unsalvageable interior this summer I would love to have an idea of how I will be going about making the main salon more comfortable.
It is the time to think about as many aspects as I can since this boat is somewhat of a blank slate of possibility. The boat has fantastic custom stainless hardware to start and I have the resources to fabricate more as needed.
I have asked a few questions here not knowing exactly why I was asking and look at the thought provoking responses.
The historical, colorful and multicultural area is surrounded with museums, mosques, churches, art galleries, bookstores, designers boutiques, jazz clubs, restaurants and coffee shops. May be cheaper to join another plate than press one especially as the bend has to line up along the length. It is also why I suggest you look at the older Victorian and Edwardian launches and large commercial passenger vessels not too unlike the 'Marchioness' as they leave so little wash and disturbance as they pass through water. If I was to partition the tanks so I had left and right tanks with the possibility of pumping from one side to the other that would effectively be moveable ballast.
The cross section will enviably be a box but I can now better appreciate that the challenge is to make slight alterations to the angles with the intention to make it look less like a box.
It is much cheaper to fold a plate and as my cross section demonstrates best to keep to overall standard raw material plate widths.
If I had a million to spend and it could be done for half naturally I would spend the half, not that I will be cutting any corners.
Will admit I don't like Acad but don't draw buildings, more products including some architectural or 'street furniture'. You will not need all the possible equations and formulae to get a good hull form but you will need a few simple ones.
Therefore I believe there is a larger pool of resources for welders than there are fibre glass lay- uppers.
Has anyone read "Interior Design Methods for Yacht Design and the Boat Building Industry"?
I am going to keep it as simple as possible with minimal electrics but I want to be smart about it. Their underwater shapes are what you need to study, also any barge lines especially known fast ones. I don't think the small amount of angle changes possible would have a significant effect on the efficiency of the hull side but I think angle changes can be taken forward and extenuated into the bow design and there they may be able to be given a physical benefit. Press bending the panels along the length is carried out on a CNC Press in a full batch quantity and the repeat ability between items is spot-on and the whole batch will be exactly identical to a very fine fraction of a degree.
When you draw it up, make a list of all the things you need just to operate the vessel, and maintain it. What do you want to do with it exactly, and what may have maximum draft, and what maximum strut to pass under the bridges?.
I can handle the woodwork fine but as far as the initial planning goes I would like a strong jump start in the right direction.
I want to end up with a simple and modern boat that holds classic appeal and is extraordinarily elegant.
Either way I've never seen a narrow boat quite like that so may be Sukisolo is right and that will be my opportunity achieved.
Although I have not had a boat fabricated before I have had far larger and far more complex structural fabrications put together. A model with removable topsides would be an excellent tool prior to build, I reckon it would be worth every hour spent on it. In addition, I need to do this by resorting more on my skills as a craftsman than on buying the best of everything. This past fall I was just happy to get the boat here in one piece and have it drained before freezing! Depending on the level of the fuel tank it is lighter or heavier than the balancing battery bank therefore he trims the boat with the sacks of coal that he carries on the roof; - moveable (and variable?) ballast! To my mind UK narrow boat builders are a cottage industry and not at all regulated as much as the construction, (or maritime) industry for weld testing and quality. I have 9 years to rebuild it (as I continue a healthy and wonderful relationship with my wife and kids) and when my kids are old enough to embark on their own I hope they might join me.
That's why I am confident that a competent structural steel fabricator can weld a boat together. These elegant and efficient vessels can trace their evolution back to Stone Age Umiak boats but has appeared generally that we have more in common with these days between the 9th and 13th centuries.
My wife sailed with me for the previous voyaging and supports me doing this but she will not be on the boat too much.
