Something new


I thought for a long time, what next?  I will build a boat. Firstly, sport seaplanes, speedboats I always liked, as well as airplanes because of their swift form. I disassembled my trike. Left only the fiberglass cabin, the frame had to be cut into metal. I have nowhere to store it, but to build a new place is necessary. My employer agreed to give me a small corner on my business, but there is not enough space for two projects. In general, I have a motor – a weak rocket 125. And I want to make a boat for this motor. Of course it will be aero gliding. Something similar to American calamus bots, but I hope to make my boat more elegant. The idea is to make the boat small enough to fit in the upper trunk of the car and two people could easily remove it from there. For this, it must be easy. Also, it should be easy to join any pair of motor. More precisely, a pair of motor installation. Well, since my motor can produce a maximum of 50 kg of traction, the boat must also have an advanced hull in order to go out on the boat and quickly slide along the water surface. I read a lot of different literature about hydrodynamics, watched various videos and changed my mind about a small body with an aerodynamic body with a small cross section. All this in a complex should give speed and good handling. I made several drawings that I will exhibit below. At the moment I have already prepared the material needed for construction. My employer Roland allowed me to use the tool and work in the workshop, as well as use some material, for which he thanks a lot. A colleague Tom helped me with the manufacture of files for CNC, so that I could cut out the templates on which I then cut the workpiece using a manual cutter. For which he, too, thank you very much! In general, I will gradually build a boat and talk about my successes.
