Salcombea€™s first development of new properties right on the watera€™s edge for almost twenty years. Anyway that aside if I was looking for a plan of a boat like that what sort of thing should I be looking for, has anyone seen plans similar to this boat? I found this, unfortunatley this is a row boat, I would like something a little bigger that can accomodate an esky or two and a small inboard motor, maybe with slightly higher sides. This seems close in that it is a twin prow (is that the right word) but the bow is much higher than the USGC style surf boats. This is still as close as I have been able to find so far, I would not build the cabin space on if I used these plans. It appears that it was first built around 1909 to 1916 as an experiment in motor surf boats and was successful, after this the US Coast Gaurd started building and converting there 36ft rowed surfboats into motor versions.
Now, what we really need is someone that's seen the movie and knows exactly what type of boat it was. Its been a while since I saw the movie (very enjoyable film by the way, kind of a dude's ballet in the sense of the old kung fu movies) but I don't seem to remember his boat as being that large. I like the sailing version, but I don't really know anything about sailing and so i'm inclined to keep looking for just a motorised version of that sail boat, although i do like the idea of that sail boat, it looked great, maybe if it had a little inboard diesel i'd go with it. I've sent John Welsford an inquiry email about adapting his plan to include a small inboard either a diesel or maybe an electric marine motor running from either battery or a diesel generator. Whats the reason boats have a Transom, does it make them sail better or anything like that?
You can read more about this salvage in chapter XIII of David Masters’ book The Wonders of Salvage.(pages 517-518)The Great LakesSix lakes in North America form the world’s greatest inland fresh water area. They were armed with one 18-inch torpedo and Lewis guns, and could make well over 30 knots.

I believe it was caught somewhere near Fukushima, apparently by spearing it at the surface on a moonless night (it glows in the dark). To get WoodenBoat delivered to your door or computer, mobile device of choice, etc, click WB Subscriptions.
It looks like it doesn't have a flat back end but is pointed at both the bow and stern and has a tiller that you could use while sitting or standing. But I believe this style is easier to build and as this is my first look at building a boat, that'll be a good thing. Pram dinghies have a transom at both ends to maximise buoyancy and space for minimum length.
Colossal engineering feats involving a system of deep water canals have made an outlet to the sea for shipping.


Transoms are also more efficient as the straighter hull shape create less drag than curvier hull shapes and less turbulence. The CoverThe cover of the current issue shows the Finnish sailing vessel Varma (or Warma) being repainted in Regent’s Canal Dock, Stephney, London, after one of her voyages from the Baltic with a cargo of timber. With an area of over 95,000 square miles of fresh water, they comprise a natural waterway surrounded by some of the richest industrial and agricultural areas of the North American continent. Initially she was based at Dunkirk, operating as part of the Dover Patrol, and taking part in raids on Ostend and Zeebrugge, including the famous Zeebrugge Raid of 23rd April, 1918. On these lakes are ship types equal in size to the largest ocean-going freighter, and big paddle ships or “side-wheelers” which would dwarf the excursion vessels of Europe. In 1919 CMB 4, commanded by Lieutenant Augustus Agar, was used on Secret Service operations in the Baltic. This chapter is by A C Hardy and is the fifth article in the series on World Waterways.(pages 519-522)A DEEP-WATER LOCK at Sault Ste.
In August Agar and CMB 4, with other CMBs participated in Operation RK, the famous attack on Kronstadt Harbour.
Marie Canal connects Lake Superior with lakes Huron and Michigan, and passes through one of the world’s greatest locks, 900 feet in length, 60 feet wide and 21 feet deep.
The Canadian Pacific lake steamer Keewatin is here seen passing through the lock.A SALVAGE TRIUMPH. To raise the halves of the Araby from the bottom of the harbour channel, into which they had sunk, large pontoons were used. Two of these were lashed to the bow, pumps were set to work, and gradually the bow was raised. Tide by tide it was slowly moved until it no longer obstructed the harbour traffic, but was beached in the inner harbour. Similar means were used in raising and moving the stern, which is seen in the photograph above. The lowest square sail on each mast is normally called the course - for example, fore-course or main-course on the foremast and mainmast respectively - the main course being derived from the Old French world cors, a body. The course was the original square sail of primitive rig and was the body to which all the other sails were additions. The sail on which the men in the picture are working, however, - the lowest square sail on the mizenmast - is an exception, and is always called the crossjack (pronounced cro-jack). The plate is from the painting by Claude Muncaster, ARWS, ROI.(attached to page 525)Coastal Motor-BoatsCoastal motor-boats (or CMBs) are the small high-speed torpedo boats evolved in Great Britain by John I Thorneycroft and Company Ltd. The CMBs carry two torpedoes, and rely only on speed and helmsmanship to escape punishment. They are, in smooth water, the fastest naval craft, and in fair weather no other surface craft can catch them. During the war of 1914-18, coastal motor-boats played a part out of all proportion to their size. They attacked enemy submarines, destroyers, aeroplanes and patrol boats, laid mines and made smoke screens. On St George’s Day, 1918, they rendered conspicuous service during the historic raid on Zeebrugge.
This chapter is by Sidney Howard.(pages 529-534)Sea ShantiesThe sea shanties which are so popular nowadays have altered in many ways since they originated in the early sailing ships to help the crews to work together. Every shanty had its own purpose, but modern machinery often obviates the necessity of singing shanties even in sailing ships. Shanties therefore had a time and rhythm of their own, designed to give the concerted pull on the rope at thee right moment. It is difficult to get the proper rhythm and time unless you have a rope to pull or a capstan bar to push. Only the shanties for the jib or staysail halyards or the capstan were sung at any noticeable speed. The illustration shows the crew of the Penang raising the ship’s anchor by means of the capstan. Generally a fast shanty that helps the me to keep time and give a concerted pull is used, and Billy Boy was an old favourite for this reason. If the anchor was on a muddy bottom, however, a hard steady pull was necessary, and a shanty with a slower rhythm was used.


Weighing the anchor at the start of a homeward voyage was an event which usually called for Shenandoah, Rolling Home or Good-bye, Fare Thee Well. Numbers of these boats, based at Dover, Portland and Portsmouth, were used for anti-submarine work. The boats generally carried two officers, two mechanics and a wireless operator.(page 529)The Australian Coastal Cargo ShipThe construction of vessels used for coastal services differs radically according to local requirements. The coasters working on the Australian coast, where a great deal of freight is picked up from lighters in open roadsteads and in rivers, are designed to carry the biggest load in the smallest space. The composite drawing below is intended to illustrate the smaller types of ships running on the Australian seaboards and rivers. She has a small forecastle and a long well deck, with a hatch nearly 50 feet long and 14 feet wide.Abaft this ii the superstructure proper, at the forward end of which is a large insulated space for the carriage of butter and dairy products. Abaft the insulated space is the engine casing for the main diesel engine - all such ships are now motor ships - with accommodation alongside.The raised quarter deck is then clear to the after end of the ship, with the exception of another large hatch. There is a small steering gear house aft, on which a dinghy is housed in davits.Accommodation for captain and officers is at the forward end. Note the length of the derricks on the foremast and mainmast.The navigating bridge is a wide open structure with a glazed forefront. The accuracy and speed with which he carried out his work won for him immediate and world-wide recognition. His greatest achievement was the correct plotting on the map of many lands in the Southern Hemisphere. He sailed far south to the Antarctic, and in three voyages filled in the blanks the the early explorers had left on the map. Moreover, Cook was the first man to conquer scurvy, the disease that had been the bane of all ocean voyagers up to his time. His strict attention to detail was extraordinary, and his vision never failed however great the pressure of immediate circumstances may have been.
His rectitude and courage inspired the men who sailed with him, and they gave him affection as well as obedience.
This chapter is by Sidney Howard and is the second article in the series Supreme Feats of Navigation.(pages 536-541)The ResolutionThe Resolution was the three-masted ship of 462 tons which Captain Cook commanded on his last two voyages. In 1772, accompanied by the Adventure (336 tons), Cook sailed the resolution to the Antarctic, reaching lat.
In 1776 the Resolution sailed again and Cook attempted to find a passage from the Pacific to the Atlantic north of the American continent.(page 539)Novelties in Ship DesignInventors with revolutionary ideas in naval architecture were responsible, particularly in the nineteenth century, for the construction of many strange and remarkable types of ships, but the ambitions of the designers were seldom realized.
All through the history of shipping there has been a succession of freak designs in naval architecture.
They represent attempts to produce a revolutionary ship that will overcome all the difficulties of the shipping industry and put its inventor in the way of a huge fortune. When the object is to eliminate certain excessive costs or the handicaps to trade, the inventor is often successful enough until the circumstances change. When, however, the inventor has attempted to evolve a hull form that will cope more successfully with the resistance of the water or with the effect of waves, he has never been entirely successful, because it is only the slow and studied development of existing features that proves of any avail. LawsonTHE ONLY SEVEN-MASTED SCHOONER IN THE WORLD was built in 1902 by the Fore River Shipbuilding Company, at Quincy, Massachusetts, USA. She was owned by the Coastwise Transportation Company of America, and was registered at Boston. The Vice-Admiral Popoff was named after her designer, who was a Vice-Admiral in the Russian Navy. She was propelled by six screws driven by her six compound steam engines, which gave a total indicated horse-power of 2,400. The six screws caused her to spin round in the water, and the maximum speed attained was only seven knots. She was armed with two 40-pounder guns.(page 546)The Chelyuskin RescueFor the first time in history wireless and aviation wee responsible for the rescue of an Arctic expedition when in 1934 Russian aeroplanes saved the lives of more than a hundred men, women and children stranded on the Polar ice pack, after the sinking of the ill-fated Chelyuskin.
