      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Tiger 11.5 ?

Recommended Posts

Bob, I really enjoyed my FT10. My dream boat is something like a SC37 or a J111. Doesn't need to be as nice down stairs as a SC37. A small gally, small berths and a nav station. Boat needs to be capable of offshore work and bouy racing. No more than a 7ft 6in draft. planning hull and overall fast, faster than a J111 is a must. Am I crazy? Can it be done and for how much?

Perhaps if asked in the CA forum you'd get a better response, but there WAS a plan for a FT 12 that fizzled for some reason.

 

One thing is a boat in that size is just a LOT more than just 6 feet longer, so shipping & many other aspect become much more expensive.

No you are not crazy, and it already has been done.

 

If you are interested and can handle few more inches of draft, I know someone who already has a boat that you described; a 37.5' Goetz built flyer, well under 9,000 lbs with a full cruising interior and ~6'-3' headroom.

George how fast is it? Will it get up?

 

Thought about the Farr, but would like a more modern hull and a Assy is a must.

Port tack:

I never say, "It can't be done." If I did there would be no FT10m, no Baba 30 and no Bob Perry. It can always be done. Little by nlittle you just strip away the parts that won't work and in the end you have a good boat.

I think Schooner Creek could build it reasonably but they sure can't compete with a used production boat. We'd have to do some preliminary drawings and have SC take a look to get a good idea of a price. When you finish digesting all the advice you are getting here I'd be willing to talk to you about a project. Glad you are enjoying the 7.5.

Something close- look in Perry on Design, Amati. ( No, she's NOT for sale, but the design might amuse you.) Effortless speed. Schooner Creek build. 40'. 9600 lbs. A bit deeper than you want. Skinny.

 

I for one think she would make nice series boat. You would want masthead everything no doubt.

 

:lol:

Lake:

Only in the mind of my clients. It just died a slow death as the economy crashed. It might come back to life but if it does it will just look like an old design to me and there is probably not a line on it that I wouldn't change today. That happens over time.

Bob is always the diplomat, and seems like he has no gripes, but...

 

Why is it called the 13.8 when it is really 13.41?

 

And it doesn't quite look like a Perry.

 

But it does look pretty good!

The design is mine as rendered by Ivan. Simple as that. Can't remember why there is a LOA disrepancy. Ivan is currently doing a 3d model of a 29' powerboat I am working on. We collaborate.
