Thanks for the reply -
All of the mini's I listed can be built as a proto - as long as there is enough of a design alteration to respect the 'patent' of the design. All of the production boats are layup's - but could be modified for a home built proto.
What attracted me to the OSYD project is that the final plans would be open source. The last update to the site was almost 5 years ago. The 'team' set a design parameter of final weight, listed the hull displacement curve, and a prismatic coefficient of 0.526. Technology has moved ahead since then...
The downloads for the project can be found here: http://www.zwakenberg.de/mini/downloads/downloads.html
I want to build a mini that is fast, light, spacious - and takes advantage of new materials. I live in the southern part of New Mexico, where the boat will be trailered to a nearby lake for testing. Looking over Leo V's excellent website - I can see that trailering might also be an issue. The draft on the Dix plans are 2 m., while most production boats are now 1.7 m. Most of the production boats are also moving into a chine war, away from the radius chine.
This looked like a project that lost wind, and I wanted to see if there might be interest to get back to work on it.
