Re: River Belle or "Noble Cab" pictures?
- Yes, of course, I meant Atkin designs.
Looks like Alligator is very like a Rescue Minor scaled up 2.5 times
in length and beam, 20x displacement (about 1/3 heavier than if in
proportion) but with only 7x the horsepower, and does 9 knots.
Gerr's Summer Kyle http://www.gerrmarine.com/power_50.html is about
double length and beam, about 10x displacement (about 25% heavier,
proportionally), about 10x the power, and does 11 knots. His other
tunnel stern cruisers appear to have similar performance.
Noble Cab is about 1.75 the length and beam of RM, and about 5x
displacement (roughly in proportion, with about 5x the power, and
does 14 knots IIRC.
