Bolger Diesel Launch. 39'4" x 8' x2'6"/ Box keel..etc 12kt.speed
- "GhartC" posted in Bolger Cartoons group files section a scan of
a "Diesel Launch", 39'4" x 8' x 2'6" (12M x 2.44M x .75M) thats
supposed to be caple of 12 Knots displacement speed. She's a chine boat
with a cutwater box keel and a layout like a 1920s express
cruiser.Diesel powered (I'm thinking a Deutz Air/Oilcooled engine of
about 40 -60HP ???)
I'd like to find out more information about this design. The scan gets
a bit blurry when enlarged so I'm not sure if its design number, its
either; # 379 or # 579.
Was this boat featured in an issue of MAIB or SBJ. Are there any
pictures of the boat(if she's been built!!)? also is there a drawing
showing the accomodation arrangement? I presume she's fibreglass
sheathed ply construction?
Any more drawings and/or information on this interesting design would
be greatly appreciated.
