- Interesting stuff. Would you round over the corners to get more flowing curves?I think your triangle problem is undefined. If you imagine taking the top left corner, and pivoting this about the bottom left corner keeping the 11 measurement constant, the value of x changes without affecting any of the specified dimensions and angles. So you need at least one more length or angle defined somewhere. I may take a lot at it later but right now I have a boat to build.

Hi, I have made a twist to the "prism" way of boat design, making it look more like a boat. First I wanted to share the idea, hoping I'm not reinventing something on a previous thread, but I haven't seen it done this way and I've been interested in little wooden boats forever.

I have made a blog to archive and share drawings and notes a few days ago at www.onesheetboats.blogspot.com

I also have a problem stuck in my craw, regarding the exact measurement of an offset. It seems like I should be able to figure it out, but I can't. If anyone has good math skills or is intuitive like that, please check it out. It's the post called "solving for X"

- I have just posted some figurin' for calculating the arcs used to round over the corners for each of the three angles involved to the blog.

Regarding the triangle, I don't think it's pivitable, because the 11" measurement is verticle, the top line is horizontal meanining the two are locked in a right angle. The length of the chine cannot change because it would get rid of the right angle by the 8" side.
