Re: [bolger] Re: At last ... It makes SuperBrick seem normal.
- Agreed, I also noticed in one of the shots in the travellift, that it has external ballast that forms feet. It will likely wind up sitting on them pretty often in its protected anchorage.

I had only assumed it was round bottomed, so I went back to the slid show. No photos exposing the bottom. Then I found this Exburyegg.org <http://www.exburyegg.org/> I think the stability curves would be eggstremely scary on this thing.
Cuteness aside, the operative word in the web page is "tethered." It's not a ship, or even a shantyboat it's a "floating home." Stability curves assume a free floating craft--I think in the extremely protected water, with a few lines securely attached, that I would certainly spend a night (or a month!) on her. ------------------------------------ Bolger rules!!! - NO "GO AWAY SPAMMER!" posts!!!

- Sorry; hit "send" by mistake."egstremely scary on this thing.
Well, guy is an artist, so you never know. But let's assume there is ballast in that bilge. He may still get seasick every time a dinghy rows past. Sort of like living in a very slippery rocking chair."I would have thought that this hull shape would be particularly immune to rocking from wave influence, not the opposite.
