Up she goes & shes so very close! Life being life, Im consolidating a few of the boats.
77 Hood Yawl -238 hours on a new diesel repower. -Full bottom work up, epoxy barrier etc. / full process pics and documented found in excellent condition. -AwlCraft /hull paint job (last coat, cove and boot stripe left) -All New standing rigging -All New running rigging -Spars AwlGripped (moondust) -All New mast wiring. -New LED anchor/steaming & foredeck lights. -All run trough new, installed conduit. -New wood mizzen spreaders w/bronze ferrules. -New VHF antenna. -Sole stripped prepped for sanding/finishing. -Interior teak is in really good shape.
She doesnt need much to finish her out with the final personal touches. Cushions etc., a head pretty up etc.
Full disclosure; Somebody gives her a little more love, and shes a fully finished classic with new life.
*I have 38,000 in invoices on her. She so close to complete. All her big ticket items have been done. Finish her up and personalize a great classic, for a fraction of the refit expenses.
USCG Documented. all her papers in hand.
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
Westerbeke Diesel was an option.
Available as cutter or yawl.
