If it's not you, and it's not public domain, then posting plans is a violation of copyright. Location: New York That plan is one from the Smithsonian's collection of plans, maintained by the History of Technology Division of the National Museum of American History. Location: Sweden I can agree with marshmat and Robert but I have two questions regarding this. Are designers today exposed to the same problem as the "problem of illegal downloading" as the music or film industry?

Location: Eustis, FL Having met and discussed boat design at length with the very man that drew those plans I can assure you he didn't sneak around, pulling lines from vessels, by flashlight probably, in the middle of the night. His process was quite simple, to preserve the lines of types that would soon become extinct (his assumption, usually quite accurately so).
I met him at the end of his life, when he wished he had more time to catalog the craft he felt he missed, but was no longer the man able to perform this task. Buy the plans Boreas, they're very inexpensive and he'd loved the idea they were doing what he hoped it would, spark interest in a type long gone. I said, ?He didn?t get permission but instead he snuck around in the middle of a moonless night and stole them.? and I thought it was extreme enough that nobody would take it seriously. Location: Cathlamet, WA The point I tried to make was that Chapelle likely had no permission from the designer or the builder to make those drawings in most cases.

Location: Trondheim, NORWAY It's a complicated question with no simple answers. If the design office is still in business or the boat is still in production, you have to ask. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Ohio-based Zyvex Technologies just unveiled the Piranha – a next-gen unmanned boat that is 75% lighter, 40% stronger, and 400% more fuel efficient than similarly-sized aluminum boats. Please note that gratuitous links to your site are viewed as spam and may result in removed comments.

Here is a simple wiring diagram for motor- and sailing boats with one engine and just the basic equipment. Boat owners who have no idea what this all means should of course hire a qualified technician!
I once, somewhere suggested automatic 12 vdc diode light in the engine compartment, biwired together with the bilge pump.

Because this post was only meant to help people getting started, I did not supply detailed info. Fuses are absolutely necessary to protect your safety, but with proper, careful wiring they should never do what they are designed for: blow.
Location: Outer Hebrides, Scotland CDK, can I ask what the box at the bottom left of your drawing is? There are only 7 wires connecting it to the rest of electrical parts that is located elsewhere on board, i.e.
I've wondered about taking common cheap ac switches like Delane used and attaching pigtails potting them with epoxy.
Location: Milwaukee, WI If you have fuel onboard, those switches are not spark protected. Boat wraps build your name recognition, promote your sponsor, and provide added protection to your boat.

Location: south carolina building an aluma jet after 2 years i finally finished my jet boat project.


Well, as far as mine, I started on it in February of 2005, and by July of '05, it was on the water an operational. Unfortunately, this was metal-to-metal wear, and the flats of the shaft would wear out after about 100 hours, on average.
The levers themselves were originally made out of aluminum flat bar, with the ends radiused. The way I did my throttle cable was to buy the cable conduit like that used on motorcycle control cables. I also had to make my own cable brackets, for holding the throttle, steering, and reverse cables securely.

Location: New York I remember now where I saw the prop model of the AQ that was used in making the movie. Location: Maine Michlet does a good job of predicting the wave resistance interaction between hulls (see the offset hull design that cancels the wave creation on the lee side).
Ansys-AQWA can be used for doing traditional seakeeping analysis, including interaction between hulls, but it is not free, not easy to use, and the theory is different in many respects from Michlet (e.g. Location: australia Here we go again, it IS possible to design your own multihull. You need to do heaps of reading, but there is ample info on the web to make it possible to design it well tho.
You can use FREESHIP software to do your lines plans and make useful drawings to get your hull shapes and frames ready for lofting.
Thank you There is a lot of satisfaction to be gained from designing your own boat then building it, then sailing it, at least I think so.
The software that you could use to design a yacht is not necessarily different to that you would use to design a car or an aeroplane or other piece of mechanical equipment. The two programs that I mention above are moderately expensive, I have only have the use of them due to work not connected with my hobby. Going back to your original question, I am asuming that you actually intend to draw a boat with software, if you only want to 'do the math' then a free spread sheet program may be all you need, or a pocket calculator.

Originally Posted by groper Here we go again, it IS possible to design your own multihull. However, the odds of coming out with a good boat (resale value) are quite low unless you have 10 years + of experience using a similar type of vessel. Even building from plans is a bad idea without years of prior experience on similar vessels. Of course, I am assuming you are doing it for the end result and not the joy of designing and building. I'd be willing to throw results from AQWA (not free) and OpenFOAM (free but seriously tough to use) into the mix of Delftship + Michlet + Brancells.exe proposed by smartbight, for seakeeping and resistance calculations that go beyond empirical methods. They sell copies at a very reasonable price and it would be both safer and more polite to buy a set instead of using a photocopy. Is a copyright valid forever, or is it like the music buisness, something like 50 years after the rightholders death. What aould be the legal consequece if you build a boat after someones drawings without paying a royalty? It contains the known background and written interviews with the owner and other interested parties.
He was a unique work of art, a true artist, historian, fine draftsman, builder and yacht designer. The 54-foot vessel features a high-tech carbon fiber shell that harnesses nanotechnology to yield unparalleled gains in efficiency and performance, and it recently completed its testing off of Puget Sound.
Zyvex infused the carbon fiber material with carbon nano tubes to create an extremely strong yet light shipbuilding material. Parts like the diode bridge and 4-way battery switch are available from Vetus in Europe, I did not look for US suppliers.
After having that fail twice, I went with a spartan jaw coupler, the one used on the Kawasaki 750 jet skis. I used jam nuts and washers to control the amount of friction required to operate the levers. As well as designing a weedless grate system, using some stainless flat bar, and another push-pull teleflex cable, with a specially designed watertight housing where the cable goes into the intake scoop. Even if the software can compute the numbers, it is up to the designer to determine what those numbers should be, and which numbers are important, and what trade offs are acceptable based on the boats intended purpose. However, you will only get out of it what you put into it, so if your not prepared to learn a bit more about what makes a good multihull - GOOD, then be prepared to design and build a worthless junker which has little resale value despite the thousands of hours youve poured into the entire project.


It's possible to buy an electronic keyboard at a quite reasonable price, but buying one by itself won't enable you to make music which anyone would want to listen to. I think there is no copyright on plans held by the Smithsonian but I think the book you copied from does have a copyright held by W.W.
Is it legal to create and build a "replica" built on limited information like a line drawing found on internet? In fact there is a published book that details how to document historic boats and what paperwork needs to be prepared and also covers the necessary permissions.
It was also his hope, that his drawings (generally, not a complete plan set, but enough for an experienced builder or designer, needing reference material) would continue to foster recreations, evolutions of the type, restorations and reproductions.
He took liberties, at times, a lot of heat over the USS Constellation (he was right after all, long before anyone would admit it publicly) was an opinionated, stubborn and grouchy individual, but I loved him, just because he wouldn't conform, if for no other reason (it was the late 60's and non-conformity was a thing for me at the time).
People that work hard to document old designs before they vanish are normally paid by museums. The automotive type with knife contacts costs only a few cents and makes reliable contact with a socket or crimp terminal.
FML Design uses only the best quality films and printers on the market and we pride ourselves on top of the line installation techniques and methods.
Then, I took some small brass round rod, drilled and tapped it for setscrews, and then a cross drill for the cable to fit through. By shutting off the engine, then, pushing down on a handle lever, I can drop the intake grate, allowing it to clear off any weeds. Although they are still in the process of editing the footage right now, I'm fairly certain this boat will be seen on TV, as it was hauling members of the camera crew. You need to have an idea of how you will build it, and with what materials, so you can design it to be easily built - theres no point drawing lots of compound curves when your building in sheet ply for example.
Both are good and well capable of designing a yacht, including stability analysis and weight analysis. Also, I believe there are much cheaper alternative programs but I am not the best person to advise, you really need to have used a program yourself to be able to say how good it is. There seems to be no clear best solution to this, which is why we have such an interesting variety of monohull hull shapes. This work is usually paid for by a grant from someone and the paperwork to document both the boat and the use of the money is beyond belief. He thought I was a brash young pup, that needed a good *** whipping, though he liked my sailing skills, particularly against the blue bloods. So it make sense to buy plans from the museum, even if it's just for the wall in your workshop. Glass fuses in a fuse holder are very unreliable in a marine environment but you already found that out.
Petrol & salts will dimish the integrity of the boat vinyl wrap film so it is a good idea to clean it regularly and take special care around fuels and other chemicals. Sand and mud or muck bottoms will destroy all COMMON built jet drives and possibly you if you eject in a turn with a channel marker pole in front of you.
A mini scatter shield is a very good idea for the rare times they let go completly because no one saw the first of the 3 links opening. I used the existing design of the Sea Doo Jet Boat's weedless system as a model for my design. Because the software just spits out numbers, it is the understanding that goes behind those numbers that is important not the numbers themselves. With the full program suites you can also do structural analysis by FEA, if you want to take it that far, I suspect that even professional yacht designers dont always bother, relying on 'it looks as strong as the last one we did, and thats still afloat'.
Did not someone say 'If it mattered what the shape of a yacht is then they would all be the same.'.
Attendees will evaluate the Piranha for uses such as fighting piracy and oceanographic surveying. Boat wraps require special attention below the gunwale (top of the side edge)and along the bow (front end). With a multihull the hydrostatic roll stability is almost independant of hull shape, and the pitch stability is fairly independant of it, which simplifies the stability problem at least. If water penetrates the boat wrap it will weaken the adhesive and if not addressed quickly, destroy a large portion of the boat vinyl wrap. Freeship software will work this out roughly for the basic structure for you if you split the panels up into individual layers and supply it with accurate material densities. On the other hand, the need to keep a big lightweight spidery stucture in one piece leads to interesting structural issues. I might also add that some things aren?t copyrighted and old boats aren?t likely to have been copyrighted at all. The fitout is upto you to work out and control the weights so you dont mess up the CoG too much. It has changed hands a number of times and was last seen at the Key Largo Hotel marina in Florida.
