Planning

We had the 1st go over of the plans, over drinks and pizza (no stains on the plans) followed by a visit to the Sandpiper for singing and cheer :)

It was clear that my family did not want an Aft Cabin version and there were definite modifications that can be made to accommodate a family of 5. The standard version would provide more interior space and it turns out that the cabin bulkhead can be moved aft which will increase the forward cabin comfort space which may be an option. We will be customizing the cabin to sleep 5, it will include a bunk, two benches (with potential center support) and the forward cabin. This is definably the benefit of being able to build from plans rather than purchase production for my requirements.

General materials were reviewed with a list leaving for initial pricing and budget = planning. Matching budget to build phases is going to be an interesting exercise and a key to a successful build plan.

There are a number of modifications which are strictly performance based that are on the table, this is where the mind needs to meet the budget (but dreaming is nice too). It is a must to include foils. Currently straight foils are leading vs curved for SaltSpray. They are easily repairable, simple and much easier to replicate (not to mention a great back rest). The beams will need to be reinforced (which is a non issue) and foil system designed. The benefits of foils are well proven on Tri’s and what a hoot…

I was just informed of some updates for the F-22, one in particular regarding hull shape, caught my eye will keep you posted…

Arranging for another plan review & discussion once material pricing is ready, hoping to do so this week.
