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. (Sorry guys 2 sheet boat this time).

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.
