The name will be BASS, unless I come up with something better.
This one will be 14' long (not counting rudder) 28" wide.
3 panel design, with tumblehome.
JPEG from my TurboCad file:
It will be strip built out of 1/4" thick "Light Balsa" (6-10 pounds per cubic foot). Projected hull weight is under 30 lbs.
Fully glassed on the inside. Kevlar on the outside.
Reduced fineness ratio will make the draft just over 3" at nominal load.
Slightly narrower than GAR
New short rudder design. Lighter, easier to lift. Has a center only pulley. retracts 180°.
Hatches similar to Gerald's Triple X. Better seals than GAR all around though.
Integral externally mounted Fish finder Transducer. (For best data.)
Tunnel through SOT area, to prevent water from accumulating anywhere, and to make it easy to sponge it out.
Flush, trolling rod holders.
Stouter gunwale, and parallel, so that a sliding Xwing like instrument panel could be added.
Old stuff: (same as GAR)
Hobie Mirage drive with ST Turbo fins
Bait tank with self priming fresh water pump
Plenty of storage
Speed and agility of the 3 panel design
Comments and suggestion welcome.
