Title: selway fisher mini
Post by: windswept on January 16, 2007, 03:21:36 AM
  Selway fisher from uk has a minitransat plan for the hull and deck. A bit on the heavy side but has a
a few more inches freeboard than required for the production class . If your thinking of going for more
of a cruiser  type 650  the plan looks good.  Here the description and web page
www.selway-fisher.com/Yacht2024.htm#TRANSAT
T 6.5
   This is a multi-chine plywood entrant for the Mini-Transat race which takes competitors across the Atlantic to Antigua via the Canary Islands. It is known as one of yachting's most dangerous races and is fought by boats with a maximum length of 6.5m. We have been asked to draw up a design for a Canadian client which uses standard stitch and tape building methods with non exotic materials for amateur construction. She incorporates water ballast along with a lead ballasted bulb on a high aspect ratio keel, inclined twin rudders and built-buoyancy. Whilst designed for a specific race, she would provide fast exciting sailing in coastal waters (the keel can be raised for easy transport) and has room for more than the 2 berths shown. LOD 21'4" (6.5m); Beam 9'10" (3m); Draft 6'4" (1.92m); Total loaded displ. 2814 lbs. (1276 kg); Total ballast 1574 lbs. (950 kg); Working Sail Area 458 sq.ft (42.6 sq.m.). Plans for the hull/superstructure only are available
