I think those funny-shaped things are lead ballast fitted to either
side of the of the centreboard case. There's no ballast shown
anywhere else, such as shown in the drawing of the ply C25 v2.

If you want to know how much interior space is provided by the cuddy,
it's a simple matter of taking measurements from the drawings in the
book and scaling them up. You just need a ruler and a calculator. You
know how long the boat is, so you can work out what the scale is from
that. It's just simple proportion, as learnt in primary school , or
maybe first grade in secondary school; it's a long time ago now.

Once you have a few key dimensions, you can mock up the interior with
scrap ply and sticks of wood or backs of couches and bedsheets or
whatever.

According to an old nomograph I have, you could expect 9-1/2 knots
with 15 hp. assuming a 25' wl length and 1 long ton of displacement --
probably not quite planing speed.

Here is the quote from BWAOM: Page 229

"However the long length lets her go faster in a good breeze, or
under power. She planes cleanly with a 15 h.p. motor at low cruising
rpm."

I would expect PCB&F would be willing to clarify that if one enquired
about the plans. At any rate it would be a nice combination with the
motor hardly visible on the stern. She could probably cruise at 10
knots.

I have plans for the Princess Sharpie 26 from B&B Yacht designs and
am seriously considering building it. Weight is about 2,700#. The
princess 22 is a lot less tender than a lot of other simular boats
such as NIS's.

I too am intregued in the Red Zinger...looks like a nice boat. I
need to make a decision soon as I am just about done with my current
project (Core Sound 20). I just want to make sure I am making a good
decision prior to starting a project that will take 1,200 hours or so.

I don't believe it.

I've had mine up to 9mph, running in a blow with the 6hp going full
blast.

Michael Johannessen has a 20hp on his Chebacco, and his max speed is
almost exactly what mine is.
