Looks like it tracks upwind like shit but hauls ass of the breeze. I don't know how I feel about Scow bows on anything other than scows... Looks a little like a turd

Um, I'm going to guess a boat with a u-berth rather than a v-berth so doofus hipsters can have fore-peak menages?

That abomination will have gobsmacking amounts of interior volume...fugly, but roomy.

I was a bit disappointed when I saw the rig. I was hoping for something racer / cruiser where someone had finally worked out how to do a scow bow in this area of design, so something like the next iteration of a First 40 or so.

i know this guy Barry. he worked with Ketterman and Long on LONGSHOT and broke world records with rigs made with Wing masts.

I know he gives exactly one fuck what anybody thinks 'cause he had a thirty year career making people eat their words.

He likes fast. Antrim lives for fast. 20K lbs should scoot fine. Just like Raison brought his idea to the minis for mocking and derision, and then kicked their ass, time will tell here. and don't judge that monomaran long straight waterline.

the only thing truly fugly is a bow shape that seems designed to pick up the ocean and drop on deck... that's mos fugly... and stupid.

total rig weight above the deck will be under 400 lbs. plenty of sail area for easy cruising, one halyard, one sheet. elder love.

and I'll bet you there's a lot to learn about how the junk rig functions and Antrim might get that right too.

party barge? shit yeah. since when is cruising serious?

wait for it

Are we sure it isn't the cabin trunk for the new Wally, being built upside down so they can flip it into position on the hull more easily?  That guy Ed gets around a good bit - it could be from anywhere.

The RSX olympic windsurfboard was significant faster than the traditional arrow shapped boards.
The board. nicknamed "the pancake" builds a aircushion between the board and the watersurface that provide lift and therefore is is drag reducant..
Despite the wider nose it's faster.

The scow bow massively increases the righting moment of the hull. You need less ballast in the keel, hence lower overall weight. It may be fugly, but no worries, you will only see the transom

It is nice to see all of the rebuttals to the doubters and haters in the last few posts.  According to ScowJunkie the owner has a history of sailing fast.  Antrim has designed many fast boats.  Scows have long been proven to be fast.  This boat ticks all of the boxes for me: relatively fast, comfortable and easy to sail.  Function creates beauty.  Being a fashion victim....not so much.

let's have a history investigation. surely someone can 'point' out exactly when humans began putting the point on the front. this has now been developed into the realm of stupid, especially when you think about designs that seem to sail half underwater with the lower portion of sails full of the sea as well, and everyone revels at the thought of spending time hiding from the danger of a wall of water flushing the deck.

the best part is when the crews are restricted from bringing anything 'heavy' on board to 'save weight'. how much does that water on deck weigh?, or when it's filled the cockpit? does that added displacement make the boat more stable or faster?

the point on the front. almost any shape, is dumb as a hundred years of dumb can make it.

change my mind.

cats... points are more logical perhaps. but who has tried the greenough spoon bow on something you want to go fast?

the spoon doesn't have to be big, just soft and lifty. george knew and did shit so right so long before anyone else. definitely lived a life not quite touching earth.

boats are simply a product of evolution. the chinese were doing cool shit 1500 years ago, all lost in the destruction of history by the ego of a mandarin.

To break a paradigm you have to prove the idea, often again and again, especially if there are significant financial interests being harmed by the shift. why didn't people want more wylie cat rigs? more freedom yachts? nonesuch? what stifled those expressions? did the boats not work well? if the scow junk doesn't work the laughter will be loud and loaded with appropriate insults.   

if a lone effective scow design got into a tp-52 fleet and was demonstrably quicker, there would be some owners not happy to have value in the boats, at least for top level racing, be largely lost. the resistance can be expected.

and to have the concept demonstrated at the AC level? pressure against for sure.

meanwhile, some fool keeps wasting perfectly good vinyl ester resin on this turd/potato. and the boat builder is chuckling because he knows he will be building more. shit... i heard there was a mini-me dinghy that has been turned into a sensible 9'6" ocean voyager called CHUBBY GIRL. even the dinghy world might like them.

I was on Groote Beer when it was here decades ago. Had the most incredible woodwork on deck and below. Basketweave countertops completely immersed in varnish.

Surprisingly small interior for such a huge boat - not much bigger than a 38' contemporary boat - except the beam.

And this is a truly breathtaking video of the same Groote Beer on its way to the yard right in the harbour of an old fishing village. This after an earlier refit when the sling broke at launch, and she fell 5 meter, smashing half the wooden botter.

Sorry for the thread drift, but it's all about scows, which comes from the dutch Schouw or Skou. And botter translates as "blunter", how appropriate!

Barry S's new boat. IMO it's going to be awesome.

I was wondering if that was Barry's new boat. I saw those drawings two years ago. As someone else in this thread mentioned, the owner gives exactly zero fucks what anyone else thinks of his boat. He is an eccentric individual, a bit quirky, but he's a genius and a great dude. He has helped me out many times over the years. He basically innovated and revolutionized the wind surfing game and won a ton of titles and records as a rig and sail designer. He has a WestSail 42 now and likes being comfortable with his wife, but then he wanted to go fast while downwind cruising in the trades. So he thought up a concept to do just that and then hired a naval architect to design it, and then shopped around for a builder. When Barry is cruising fast with his lovely wife and sipping a glass of wine at 14 knots, he'll be the one getting the last laugh. Certainly not built for everyone's tastes, but then again Barry isn't trying to fit in. He built a boat a long time ago in SF and then partied with Moitessier in French Polynesia back in the day. Lost the boat in New Zealand though, when his crew fucked up while on night watch and they hit the bricks. ACtually wrote a pretty cool book about it called 'letters to Mom' or something, where he took all his letters that he sent to  his mom and then filled in the blanks and wrote a book about his early days from a vagabond to biulding a boat to a vagahbond again and then to moving to Maui and dominating the wind surfing industry. The dude is legit. Haters gonna hate, players gonna play, Barry gonna cruise like e'eryday

I’m old enough to remember some of the rule-beater boats (Cascade, e.g.) made up to beat the IOR rules.  Man, those boats were ugly—both the rule beaters and the pinch-ended, under-ruddered, broach-happy IOR boats they beat.  This boat is being built without regard to rating rules, but instead to sail especially well under specific circumstances, rules (rating and “traditional” aesthetic) be damned.  I like that.  If it sails fast, it’s a success.  I’d much rather look at this boat than one more goddamn euro-style deck salon clone from one of the major builders.

That would be Cascade.  Loophole was it was a Cat Ketch and IOR wasn't intending to measure those.  Probably should never have been allowed to measure IMO 

Much like Gord Trowers Mach 1 - which never got built because it was basically deemed unmeasurable - although his slightly less radical Warbird did get built and measured.

Photo below is after they closed the loophole so they put a Star jib on Cascade to meet the minimum jib requirement.

 Form follows function.

 

Imagine you are the WLYDO and this client, whom you sort of know of, shows up at your door. He's not Joshua Slocum, but he didn't just sell the farm in Iowa to buy a Mac-86.

In fact, in his young adulthood he built a 38' Atkin - Ingrid sailboat, in the sense he literally constructed it himself, everything ... right down to the custom cast bronze fittings. And he  cruised it in the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to New Zealand.

 

I lifted the design brief from https://reddogyachts.com/sv-rosie-g

  • Monohull
  • Outside ballast, preferably cast lead for grounding
  • Modern junk rig with 200 lb carbon mast and engineered sail structure
  • Cockpit to galley/nav/dining same level feel. No ladders.
  • Forward flush deck
  • Scow bow 8’0” wide 2’0” back
  • Electric power
  • Large deck hatches
  • LOA 42’0”
  • Beam 14’0”
  • LWL 41’0”
  • Draft 4’0” (7’6” board down)
  • Displacement 20,000 lb
  • Ballast (cast lead) 7,500 lb
  • Sail Area 842 Sq Ft

Now there is lot to agree with, and some things to object to:

  • The monohull - mutihull debate will go on forever. Monohulls should recover from a rollover. +
  • Intentional grounding should always be considered for a cruising boat. +  Outside ballast with stainless steel bolts is debatable. -
  • The 'modern' junk rig has been around for 1500 years, one halyard, one sheet, no chainplates, no shrouds, no spreaders, no chafe. +
  • Cockpit to galley/nav/dining same level. No ladders. This is the real crux. For 99.9% of your time you're at anchor and this walkspace is a real godsend. +  For that 0.00001% of the time when a wave crashes into the stern cockpit, is it too much water below the sheerline ? Is the 'companionway hatch' into the doghouse strong enough?
  • Forward flush deck +
  • Scow bow 8'0" wide 2'0" back means space to store bicycles, sups, inflatables etc below deck during passages. The interior volume is equivalent to a modern 55-60 footer. +
  • Electric [propulsion] power  meh
  • Large deck hatches +
  • Ballast / Displacement = 7500 lb / 20000 lb = 0.375  
  • Sail Area / Displacement = 842 sq ft / ((20000 lb / 64 lb-cu ft)^2/3) = 18  suggests relatively high performance +

Row away factor:

Just holding up a piece of paper to the screen, it looks like a slight reverse sheer. I like short overhangs so the profile is rather handsome. A hard doghouse means shelter from the rain and sun. You don't like scow bows? HTFU

barry's from an era way gone. he didn't know what OG stood for, so i told him if mr clean hit that he should be happy. then i said it meant 'old guy' and he just chuckled.

i see the cockpit seats looking like there might be a door in the transom to offer big drain, and cree said there would be big drains at the back of the cockpit floor too.

i can see no reason why there can't be inside steering as well

Cambered junk and split junk rigs have greatly improved windward ability, although they still won't point as high as a well sorted high aspect modern rig. This is about the only downside of the junk rig. In just about every other field they are far better.

When you consider initial cost, maintenance needs, downwind ability and ease of use the junk rig comes out miles ahead

who has ever had a junk rig made with 100% carbon and hydranet, designed by someone familiar with high speed sailing, and as yet unseen new ideas? the whole argument that a 'junk' rig can't make a boat go to weather is completely specious. 'junk' rigs go to weather all the time and who knows on such an odd hull?. maybe no as fast, or as close, but again, who knows? an argument based on total zero experience.

sail trim is all about angle of attack. seems that the 'junk' rig has some good control over that? maybe trimming above the centerline with proper twist aloft will make lots of effective power? no angle of attack and you don't have shit, just a pretty foil shape doing nothing, bernoulli be damned.

who put the point on the front first? check out this sweet ride. dry deck to weather doing 8-9, rocket of the wind to 15. dry. beating a 30+ footer to weather. yikes. who put the point on?

Thanking this thread for the link above, and inspiration:  Having spent ~5 months cruising all over Netherland's canals and casually reading about Jack Van Ommen in Latitude 38 I got myself into a rabbit hole reading about the Groote Beer.  I've seen so many cool traditional, huge and small, old and new, boats over there.  I've been to that busy, ancient, traditional boat yard in Spankenburg where they repaired GB.  It was almost like being transported back to the 1600's, the golden age of that once powerful country.  I'm having deja vu wondering if I saw the her in my wanderings there, its spectacular carvings seem familiar.  Or, if I'd seen it locally during its decade or so in Seattle.  Interesting that local restauranteur Stuart Anderson owned her and then he gave her to the Sea Scouts.

Worth a trip to the dark side, methinks.

Looks like he is avoiding New Zealand this time, but we may see him in Fiji...

bazza'z cow junk might be like the IMOCA with pushing the rules cow bow who just whipped all the other boys by 2 knots at only low twenties in a 'speed contest'..

cow junks are red

and besides, only bulls got junk.

Ya know, what a bunch of old fuddy duddies sailors are. From these forums, and this thread in particular, I have learned almost anything that differs from classic design aesthetics, will be judged as - "Ugly" "soulless" "horrible"  "terrible" "Slow " Wet"  "POS"  or any of a long list of negative descriptors. I wonder how many people secretly kind of like it but would rather jump on the slam bandwagon to be part of the gang.

To bad for you guys, and good for me, that the sport is not stagnant.

If you guys had your way we would pretty much be stuck with Hereshoff and S&S design ideals and never would have had any innovation whatsoever.

Not really.  Innovators are motivated by naysayers.
