Location: Michigan Ergonomics - Stairs on Boats Where can I get ?FREE? drawings and information on boat ergonomics? Throwing that all out for a moment, no code just what works, I find boat stairs, doors, galleys and toilet facilities to be awkward, kids tree house like. Add to the steepness, the narrowness, lack of headroom and the fact that it's all heaving and moving about on the water and I'm just astonished any of it functions without a mutiny happening.

I guess each kind of boat (military, fishing, pleasure) has a slightly different approach, but a thing that is common is that you move yourself (in the sea) not only with your legs, but also with your arms (hands) and that is relevant to the ergonomics. Other thing is that the way you move in a small (44ftboat) is completely different from the way you move in a house (even at port) and that also changes ergonomics. I am designing the interior of a boat (my second one) and I get information on ergonomics from different sources: looking at the way things were sorted out on my own boat, observing closely (in big boat shows) the interior and ergonomics of interesting boats and looking at the drawings (cuts) of lots of boats. You can find out what works well going inside a boat and moving around, and sometimes you get surprised with good solutions that you would never consider as appropriated.

Location: Michigan I found some nice drawings on the Tanton Yachts gallery. Location: Portugal I am not a big fan of cats, but they sure offer a lot of advantages to a sailor on a wheel chair. Location: Portugal Someone (in this forum) said that the most difficult boats to design were motorsailors.
What I'm saying here is that innovation is fine if it works and doesn't take you backwards.

Now that I think about it, I can cut it down it's length at my father in-laws on his ban saw.
My other option would be to just build half the cabin at a larger scale using balsa and bass wood.
I much prefer to do rough study models which aid the design process than finished models which inhibit changes and experimentation.
Question-1: The ship ladders or stairs shown in the boat section drawings, do you go up and down them always facing the stairs? When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. I find many of actual sailing boats are conceived with no-mechanically oriented customers in mind, so leaving engine issues to the engineers when at the marina.

That boat is a Nordship 43 and Lars Buschwald, the builder is also the designer and a good sailor.
The new 40ft (I have seen it at Düsseldorf) is even better, regarding ergonomics and the use of interior space.
In the link Ike gave, I now recognize this ship, only saw it from that rear angle once - about nine months ago. Location: London Hinged bow is probably so that it can fit on the trailer or in a plane better.

Location: Oriental, NC How does ergonomics relate to the design of speedboats? This is all the ergonomics you'll ever need - if you look at it and it gives you a woody - it's got enough ergonomics!
Ergonomics is an important area of consideration in any environment where people are supposed to operate - and in the field of boat design, it is often an area which is overlooked. These are all examples of bad ergonomics and whilst many designers take the human body into consideration - probably subconsciously - just as many do not. I am very much in favor of the practice of ergonomics (it still sound funny) in the design of anything to be used by humans, including speedboats.
Do you design the ergonomics for a 6ft 6 inch tall American gentleman with long arms and legs and who weighs say 12 stone or for a 5ft 10 Ozzie beer belly who weighs 20 stone, or a 4 ft 6 inch japanese gentleman, who'd need lead platform boots not to be blown outta the boat at speed and a milk crate to stand on to see over the windscreen? What goods the exact helm and seating arrangement for hubby, if wifeys legs are swinging and don't reach the step, her arms don't reach the grab handles and every trip out is an unpleasant experience? Yeah OK ergonomics - but gimme real people ergos - not some computer model ideal crash dummy test mannikin ergonomics! One of the issues is going down into the control cabin, which is a half level below the deck. My background is that I'm an architect, a land lover who must often deal with barrier free and the ADA (American Disabilities Act).
I guess it beats trying to put your bodily fluids into a coffee can while people wait for you to do your business, right?
Need for various speeds of operation, where commercial craft are more of constant speed crusiers. They heel a lot less and they have also less differences in height between deck and interior.


The actual size of the model is almost three feet long, a foamcore cutout of a person is five inches tall. Maybe I could use some of those wooden ergonomic people and make it more of a presentation model.
Many engines are located in awkward places, being even difficult to substitute a simple belt.
He has been perfecting his boats for 25 years now and he is a perfectionist and a very enjoyable man to talk to. A remarkable piece of interior design, not to mention the rest (it’s also a reasonably fast boat, for a cruiser). My hybrid hovercraft is very similar in shape (and mission) including the low stealth profile. How many times have you been on board some flashy new sports cruiser, only to find that the seat bases are too short, or that the head is just that little bit too small to actually take a pee in, let alone a shower. If you are interested in something in particular that fits this criteria, send me a message, maybe I can help with some designs that will give some clues about boat ergonomics.
This way I can build the interior (or at least one half of it) and learn more than I could from the earlier section drawings I did on graph paper. But it is so specific that I believe it has to be done by a specialist on that kind of ergonomics (I mean your specific disability), working with a boat designer with a help of a sailor with a lot of experience with ?handicapped? sailors. However going one step further, think about why in that video they show it able to do this bow trick while in the water. The guages on that snazzy looking dash are obscured by the unadjustable wheel, which wouldn't be so bad if you could only move the bloody seat so you could reach the wheel!
I know most control cabin?s are above not below deck level, I?m thinking this could turn out to be important later on.
Remote controlled gatling gun on bow deck, two machine gun turrets up through roof of cabin area.
It could only mean that if delivered out of the tail of a low flying cargo plane the nose can be unfolded in the water.
Probably it is already done, I mean a boat adapted to your kind of needs, you have just to look at the right places. On sailboats they are usually just at the bottom of the companion way so the navigator has immediate access to the cockpit. Frankly I use an old book I have had for years on mechanical drawing (drafting) that has diagrams showing average human dimensions standing, sitting, lying down, etc.
