Re: [AtkinBoats] Re: DIsplacment figures for Teach and Milford
- Actually, I'd love it if the displacement were 2800 lbs. I am hemming
and hawing between Milford and Ted Brewer's Grand Banks22:
It's a flat bottomed dory style with plywood over bulkhead frames and
comes in at 2850 lbs also. My traierling vehicle is rated at 3500 so I
am safe there.
The flat bottom nature of Grand Banks 22 has me concerned about pounding
while under power. The V-bottom of Milford would eliminate that concern.
However, it will be spending some time bounding down the highway on a
trailer so I am concerned about the construction method of Milford. It's
not marked as a plywood option on the web site. So, I'd probably want to
cold-mold it to handle trailering better. But, I don't know exactly how
that changes things as far as scantlings and ballast modifications. Not
real sure who to ask about changes that'd be necessary for a different
construction method for Milford.
