Re: New design idea question
- The amount of curvature is why I have not tried a design like this before. When I make my designs, I have used 1/8 inch ply, which can bend as tight as one foot radius, but make a minimum radius curve at 15 to 18 inches. It is much easier.
In these small sizes, I have found that 1/8 inch ply is plenty strong and fiberglass is unnecessary (unless you bang your boat against rocks) with the advantage that a finished boat weighs about 20 pounds.

Great design and well done to the guy but think id stick prefer a fast build to water flat bottom simplicity. Hope somebody makes it, would be a good looking artistically pleasing craft.
